A relaxing way to experience the Canadian Rockies

Scale the sides of coastal mountains, roll past shimmering oceans and weave alongside steep canyons – a rail holiday in British Columbia is truly the best, and stress-free way to experience the Canadian wilderness. Sit back and relax with a drink in hand as you take in the breathtaking landscapes and picture-perfect views of British Columbia and the Canadian Rockies, many of which are completely inaccessible by road, all from the comfort of your seat.

So much more than just a train, the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer is on many travellers Canada checklist as a ‘must-experience’. These rail journeys are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the untamed wilderness whilst soaking up the un-paralleled five-star service, gourmet cuisine and fascinating commentary that makes Rocky Mountaineer famous and unique. Choose from three incredible routings departing from cosmopolitan Vancouver, First Passage to the West, Journey Through the Clouds or Rainforest to Goldrush. Upgrade to Rocky Mountaineer’s GoldLeaf service to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views from the bi-level glass-domed car, gourmet meals served in the sumptuous dining car as well as an exclusive outdoor vestibule – perfect for spotting the incredible wildlife.

Why not also take a journey on VIA Rail? Canada’s own rail network – VIA Rail is ideal for connecting British Columbia with other provinces in Canada. Depart from Vancouver on VIA Rail’s famous ‘Canadian’ service and enjoy an epic four-day journey across Canada through Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario before arriving in the country’s entertainment capital – Toronto. Or try VIA Rail’s ‘Skeena’ service connecting the coastal rainforests of Prince Rupert with the Canadian Rockies in Jasper.
