The romance of travelling through the Rocky Mountains by train has always had immense appeal. For some it is the only way to see this region of untamed natural beauty.
The Rocky Mountaineer is considered one of the world's most spectacular rail experiences. As we enjoy the ultra-modern comforts of our train, we will be following the steps of the early explorers as the rails meander over trestle bridges, along rivers and past waterfalls - all the while in the shadows of the magnificent glacier-clad mountains. While onboard, our attendant will entertain us with interesting commentary, serve our meals and ensure our utmost comfort.
We board the Rocky Mountaineer in Vancouver, and on the first day we journey through the Fraser Valley and the towering Coastal Mountains. After an overnight stay in Kamloops, we reboard the train en route to Jasper. The train follows the Thompson River to the Monashee Mountains, passing expansive glaciers until we arrive in Jasper in the evening.
There are two types of service aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. Silver Leaf Service includes hot breakfasts and lunches served at your seat, as you enjoy the spectacular scenery through the oversized panoramic windows. Gold Leaf Service includes gourmet hot breakfasts and lunches served in the exclusive Gold Leaf Dining Room, and unparalleled panoramic views through the full-length dome windows. Both services include complimentary wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the rail trip. Note - Gold Leaf passengers will be separated from the main group during the journey.
Also included on this tour are three nights in Canada's most beautiful city, Vancouver and three nights in Jasper National Park, with extensive touring and adventures throughout.
