Destinations / North America

This is not your average dinner train experience. The Napa Valley Wine Train is known for providing scenic journeys paired with world-class culinary offerings, but one experience stands out from the rest: dinner in the Vista Dome.

The train’s Vista Dome, a two-story elevated dining car, provides 180-degree scenic views. The private car is outfitted with luxurious booths and mahogany paneling for an aesthetic that captures the essence of rail travel in the early 20th century. During a three-hour journey, guests enjoy a multicourse meal — which includes dishes such as citrus-cured salmon and gnocchi with creamed leeks and forest mushrooms — and welcome drinks, as well as additional wine tastings if desired.


The Vista Dome experience is available for both lunch and dinner, with lunch experiences starting at 10:30 a.m. and dinner experiences starting at 5:30 p.m. Lunch experiences begin at $400 person, while dinner experiences start at $320 per person.

How to Leave No Trace While Traveling

Visit any popular destination and you’ll find an abundance of one thing: tourists. While there’s nothing wrong with that — travel does, after all, bring us closer to the world around us — tourists have earned quite the negative reputation for leaving destinations worse for wear. Whether it’s a visitor climbing to the top of the temple at Chichen Itza or tourists scratching their name on the wall of Rome’s Colosseum, it seems humans are always leaving their mark on the places they visit.
