What better way to explore the wonders of the Rocky Mountains than from the comfort of a luxury train carriage? Constructed over a century ago, the historic railway that the famed Rocky Mountaineer follows is widely regarded as one of the world’s most iconic journeys. An unforgettable passage through the spectacular sights of the Rocky Mountains, the Rocky Mountaineer Railroad has become a part of Canada’s grand heritage. With routes stretching across the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, this is a spectacular way to see all that the Rocky Mountain area has to offer, from the remote wilderness of high mountain passes, to glacial rivers, to deep canyons and rare wildlife.
Over the last 25 years, this train service has proved itself to be a world-class travel experience, and has thus become an increasingly popular choice for Rocky Mountain visitors. Imagine being treated to some of the most breathtaking vistas in the world through panoramic viewing windows whilst indulging in the exclusive on board service, enjoying fine cuisine and relaxing in comfort. It can’t get much better than that.
The Rocky Mountaineer operates several different packages and rail routes. Some of the routes trace the same journeys that inspired the pioneers of Canada’s past, stopping at many fascinating destinations including breath-taking natural wonders, remote settlements and stunning mountain landscapes. We can easily arrange one way or return tickets in either direction between Vancouver and Banff, Calgary or Jasper. These routes pass stunning landmarks such as Castle Mountain, Lake Louise, and the mighty Fraser River. You may even be lucky enough to catch a sight of ospreys, eagles, black bears and even the occasional grizzly bears, should you be travelling at the right time of year.
Whilst the train offers three levels of service – Goldleaf Service, Silverleaf Service and Redleaf Service – we’d ensure you were booked onto the exclusive Goldleaf package. This will include services such as a gourmet breakfast and lunch served in an exclusive dining room, 4-5 star hotels on longer itineraries, access to the astounding glass-roofed viewing carriage and your luggage delivered to your hotel.
So, as the scenery rolls by, all you’ve got to do is sit back, relax and let one of the most famous trains in the world take you on an unforgettable journey through the Canadian Rockies.
