Enjoy breathtaking scenery of glacier-fed lakes, majestic mountains and ferocious rivers, as you travel through the heart of Canada on the Rocky Mountaineer. Sit back, relax and be captivated by good food, great wine, and Canada’s most majestic landscapes.
Start your journey in Vancouver before maybe travelling on one of the great rail journeys through the Rockies, and picking up an Alaska Cruise for the return. The Canadian Rockies and the remote tundra of Alaska are not to be missed – there’s simply nothing quite like it. And to see it from a luxury train and a cruise liner makes the experience unforgettable.
Great Rail Journeys will undoubtedly convert you to a luxury train travel enthusiast if you aren’t one already. With a train you board, sit back, relax, and go. This is the way to travel!
“The train offers a view of the world which cannot be experienced through any other form of transport. It provides a spacious and comfortable environment for travellers, rather than being faced with long check-in queues at airports and cramped conditions on board flights.”
And this is just how it is on the Rocky Mountaineer.
Your journey will be guided by a tour guide, who’s knowledge of Canada’s railway is robust and thorough. The luxury journey about the Rocky Mountaineer takes you through dramatic landscapes over 7 days. Each night you will stay in a superb hotel, without any of the effort of checking your luggage in or out – this is all taken care of for you. Each morning it will be collected from your room, and all that is asked of you is that you are on time to board the train.
The Rocky Mountaineer itself is spectacular.
The bi-level Gold Leaf Service dome cars are custom built, and ensure guests a unique experience. There are views from every direction. The seats are a cut above even first-class air travel, and downstairs you’ll find the five-star quality restaurant car.
For breakfast indulge in scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, hot toast, fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, and more – a delicious way to start the day as you gaze over Canada’s horizon.
The photo opportunities are endless, and on a good day you may well get to see a grizzly or a moose. Not to mention the rivers, mountains and creeks of Canada’s heartland.
As days pass in good company and the ice melts and friendships are forged, you begin to understand what the Rocky Mountaineer journey is all about.
Explore Canada on the Rocky Mountaineer, for a Rocky Mountain holiday of a lifetime.
