From the formidable Hudson River, through the idyllic Catskill Mountains, along the shores of Lake Champlain and into the Adirondacks, take part in an adventure like no other as you ride the Amtrak Adirondack from New York City to Lake Placid, disembarking at three important locations along this scenic route. Visit the Hudson River Valley, the charming village of Saratoga Springs and on the final leg, enter the Adirondack Park to discover the history of Winter Olympics of 1932 and 1980.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Recapture a bygone age as you ride the rails from New York City to the Adirondacks.
  • Go inside the Rhinebeck Aerodrome with interpretation by an expert.
  • Visit the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics, where the U.S. men’s ice hockey team upset the favored Soviets.
