All aboard for a grand tour of Canada & the Rockies

Pulled by two colossal EMD GP40-2 diesel locomotives, the Rocky Mountaineer powers through the Canadian Rockies giving its passengers the trip of a lifetime as it heads along the First Passage to the West.

The Rocky Mountains
This unforgettable journey by rail from Banff to Kamloops and on to Vancouver follows an incredible route through spectacular scenery. You’ll travel between the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, over mountain passes, through tunnels and winding river canyons and alongside rocky lake shores. Highlights include a crossing of the Continental Divide – an invisible line that divides the flow of water between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. You’ll also see Kicking Horse Canyon, Rogers Pass, the steep slopes along the Thompson River and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon.

Rocky Mountaineer train
As you relax in comfort, keep a lookout for wildlife too. You might see black bears and elk roaming in the forests or eagles soaring overhead. On this journey, although the scenery takes centre stage, your transport is equally impressive as you spend two days aboard the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train.

Impressive views
SilverLeaf service offers a single-deck dome car with oversized windows, which means your views are truly impressive. All seats face forward and offer plenty of legroom. Hot gourmet breakfasts, lunches and snacks are served to you at your seat and complimentary soft and alcoholic drinks are also included. Onboard hosts provide a fascinating commentary throughout your trip and your copy of the ‘Rocky Mountaineer Newspaper’ also lists points of interest along the way.

Every Travelsphere holiday offers exceptional value for money. Included in the price are return scheduled flights/rail travel and internal flights, where applicable, overseas transfers and transportation, carefully chosen hotels, many meals and excursions and the services of a Travelsphere Tour Manager or Local Guide.
