Climb aboard Rocky Mountaineer and step into a world of top class service, where you can enjoy truly breath-taking scenery up close from the window of your luxurious train coach. This two day adventure will take you through Canada’s West and the Canadian Rockies, following the path of the First Pioneers.

Whether you choose SilverLeaf service or GoldLeaf service, your two days aboard the sumptuous Rocky Mountaineer train will be spent in luxury. As some of Canada’s most incredible scenery passes by outside your glass dome coach, you’ll be treated to Rocky Mountaineer’s incomparable service. Sit back and relax while your hosts take good care of you, telling you fascinating tales about the incredible landscapes that lay outside your window. Indulge in delicious food onboard as breakfasts and lunches are all taken care of, leaving you to enjoy the wonderful combination of exceptional food and stunning scenery.

Your glass dome coach and outdoor viewing platform (if you choose GoldLeaf service) will take you even closer to Canada’s rugged outdoors than you ever thought possible. From roaming wildlife to stunning canyons and sheer rock faces, you’ll travel right past natural wonders inaccessible by road. Gaze out at the breath-taking landscapes that will stay with you long after you bid Rocky Mountaineer farewell.

As the railway leads you away from Vancouver, you’ll be greeted by the Coast Mountains, the flowing Fraser River, and the tumbling water of Hell’s Gate. You’ll get to see Craigellachie, the place where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven, the Kicking Horse Canyon, and the impressive Spiral Tunnels that cut their way through the mountain rock. Journey through British Columbia’s Shuswap region, along the shores of stunning lakes and finally up into the magnificent Canadian Rockies in Alberta.

This unforgettable journey through Canada’s untamed nature leads you to either Banff or Lake Louise, where you’ll get to say goodbye to this iconic train knowing that the memories it gave you will never be forgotten.

Day 1

Vancouver - Kamloops

Start this unforgettable adventure as you climb aboard Rocky Mountaineer train at Vancouver Station at 7am. Sit back, relax and get ready to soak up some incredible scenery. As the train takes you from Vancouver into the heart of British Columbia, take in the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate, where the Fraser River suddenly narrows. Watch as the scenery outside your window changes from Fraser Valley’s beautiful green fields to more rugged terrain. Ride through the Coast Mountains and Cascade Mountains, flanked by verdant forests and river canyons below, then travel into the desert-like British Columbia interior. As you near Kamloops, witness the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River. As the train glides by the shores of Kamloops Lake, reflect on today’s journey and stunning scenery. When you reach Kamloops Station, bid your train farewell for the night as you spend the evening in a comfortable hotel in Kamloops.
