Experience the incredible natural wonders of Canada's wild west on the Journey Through the Clouds rail journey.

Begin your journey in Jasper, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park. Sit back and relax as Rocky Mountaineer takes you effortlessly through some of the most breath taking scenery that Canada has to offer - most of which is not normally accessible by road. Whether you decide to choose SilverLeaf or the luxurious GoldLeaf service, you'll be in safe hands, with a comfortable seat, delicious gourmet breakfast and lunch, all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and snacks included, as well as fascinating commentary on your surroundings.

View the glacier and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies, over mountain passes and through remarkable tunnels, along rocky lakeshores with highlights such as Mount Robson - Canada's tallest peak, Pyramid Falls and Yellowhead Pass. After your comfortable night stop in mountain town Kamloops, continue on through British Columbia and witness the dramatically changing scenery as you pass Hell's Gate in Fraser Canyon and the Thompson River. Pass through the awe-inspiring Coast and Cascade mountains before ending your journey in cool and cosmopolitan Vancouver.

Selected departure dates are available between April and October.
