1 – Intrepid itineraries

A nation of extraordinary contrasts, Western Canada offers a wealth of unique landscapes and diverse provinces to explore. Fortunately, there’s a carefully-crafted route with Rocky Mountaineer to suit every taste. Journey Through the Clouds and drink in otherworldly panoramas as you traverse Vancouver, Kamloops and Jasper. Alternatively, travel the path of the 19th century explorers and discover the First Passage to the West, rounding off your trip amidst the emerald waters and alpine forests of Banff and Lake Louise. Or avid adventurers can opt to uncover a medley of lush forests, thriving cities and untamed wilderness as they explore from Rainforest to Gold Rush¸ taking in a wealth of historic attractions along the way.

2 – Wondrous wildlife watching

With Canada famed for its abundant natural offering, it’s hardly surprising that wildlife watching is top of many a to-do list amongst passengers. Whether you’re observing from the comfort of your glass-domed coach or breathing in fresh mountain air from an outdoor viewing platform, unforgettable experiences await. Look out for the majestic moose, elks and bighorn sheep which scatter the rugged Rockies, as proud eagles soar overhead. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a family of grizzlies perched on the riverside ready to catch the salmon spawning, or black bears meandering across the forest floor.

3 – Service to spoil you

Exquisite service is synonymous with Rocky Mountaineer, since experienced Hosts, culinary delights and lavish interiors are standard throughout. Expect a seamless experience designed to make you feel like royalty from the moment you step on-board. Station transfers and complimentary baggage delivery come as standard, and all on-board dishes are carefully curated using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Opt for SilverLeaf Service and travel on-board a stylish single-level coach complete with seat-side meal service and oversized glass-domed windows to maximise viewing opportunities. Or upgrade to GoldLeaf Service and enjoy the amenities of a bi-level coach with a lower-level dining area, exclusive outdoor viewing platform and full glass-domed coach serviced by a minimum of three Hosts. Whatever your selection, Rocky Mountaineer won’t disappoint.
