The Canadian Rockies are known to many as a must-do vacation thanks to the awe-inspiring vistas that showcase nature’s most beautiful aspects of sparkling lakes, snowy mountains and local wildlife at every turn.

Rocky Mountaineer®, the luxury tourist train operating in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, is the best way to see all this part of the world has to offer. The daylight rail journeys travel alongside rivers, through quaint mountain towns, and within arms-reach of stunning, snowcapped mountains. Along the way, you will have a front row seat to fleeting wildlife, including moose, elk, bighorn sheep, bears and soaring eagles.

The experience onboard the all-dome fleet features rich, historic storytelling, world-class cuisine and a first-hand look at lush green forests and turquoise, glacier-fed lakes – all from the comfort of reclining, plush seats. With four unique routes to choose from, the awe-inspiring journeys offer romance and history, reminding you that travelling is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.

While nature’s wonders unfold out the windows, you are given the opportunity to truly unwind. Whether with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in the comfort of the domed car or on the outdoor viewing platform with the fresh mountain air, Rocky Mountaineer is a chance to unplug and relax fully into the sumptuous surroundings. With classic Canadian breakfasts and three-course lunches, the culinary service gives you a taste of the unique flavours of the passing regions. Each route offers exceptional cuisine and is highlighted by prize-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, local Canadian beers and high-end spirits.

The stunning scenery with endless views is enough to keep you enthralled, but beyond that, there’s the chance to make new friends and connect with your travelling companions as you take in this memorable trip of a lifetime.
