Can you think of a better way to view the Canadian Rockies than from a domed rail car? Not just any rail car. The Rocky Mountaineer has been called the best train experience in the world…and it’s easy to see why.
This is a total experience, not just a train ride. By day, you sit back and relax in the comfort of a first class train car as you watch the breathtaking scenery roll past. Mountains, giant trees, wildlife, rivers, gold rush country, national parks, lakes, and more mountains. At the same time, you learn some history about Canada, the Rockies, and railroads. While on board, enjoy the cuisine prepared by top chefs, all prepared while you wait. Did I mention this is not just a train ride?
At night, you settle in to fine hotels in small mountain towns or in famous cities along the route. Everything is handled for you. No transfers to worry about, just a restful night before boarding the next day for more excitement, history, and fabulous meals.
By the end of your trip, you’ve made new friends, experienced train travel at its finest, and are ready to book another trip.
Look at the trips between Seattle and Banff and decide if you want a coastal trip from Seattle to Vancouver, or a trip into the clouds from Vancouver to Jasper, or retracing history from Vancouver to Lake Louise and Banff, or if the rainforest and gold rush is your ideal trip between Vancouver and Jasper by way of Quesnel. So many choices…it’s hard to pick.
