ROCKY MOUNTAINEER
Rocky Mountaineer offers over 65 unique Canadian holiday experiences and four distinctive rail routes, rich in history and natural wonders, through British Columbia and Alberta. This world renowned, luxurious train travels by daylight through the wild beauty of Canada’s West and is the best way to experience the majestic Canadian Rockies.
Dazzling destinations
From cosmopolitan city centres to the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Rocky Mountaineer's rail routes offer you the most jaw-dropping sights Western Canada has to offer. Four routes give you the choice of travelling between Vancouver and either Banff or Jasper, eastwards or westwards, and you can even opt for the addition of the coastal journey which begins or ends in Seattle, across the US border in Washington state. Travel through the lush Fraser Valley and along the banks of the Thompson River, visiting beautiful Lake Louise en route to Banff or,
if heading to Jasper, majestic Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
Refining wining and dining
While Mother Nature is treating you to her, awe-inspiring mountain peaks and coastal rainforests, Rocky Mountaineer’s on-board culinary team will be treating you to fresh locally sourced food, fine wine, and gourmet snacks. Tuck into delicacies such as Alberta beef short ribs braised in Okanagan Valley Merlot or creamy Canadian barley risotto and as you learn about the land, its history, and the animals that call it home, you’ll get to know your fellow guests over a glass
(or two) of local wine.
Add an Alaska Cruise
For the ultimate in western wilderness adventure, consider a rail and cruise combination, adding to your Rocky Mountaineer journey a luxury cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. You will visit Juneau, Alaska’s remote capital resting at the foot of Mt. Roberts, Skagway, where the gold-rush of 1897 began, and Ketchikan, where the frequent rain is known as ‘liquid sunshine’ and where the beautiful scenery is immediately apparent.
