Rocky Mountaineer - An Unforgettable journey
A two-day rail journey aboard the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer, from Banff to Vancouver, is surely the most spectacular way to immerse yourself in the splendour of the Canadian Rockies. Discover more about this incredible adventure and hear from three travellers who have experienced this amazing journey for themselves.

When it comes to iconic rail journeys, Rocky Mountaineer is right up there at the top of the list. Combining luxurious travel, the finest local cuisine and awesome scenery, it really is a trip of a lifetime – the icing on the cake of any holiday to Western Canada!

You’ll follow an incredible route which takes in snow-capped peaks, mountain passes, rocky lake shores and the spectacular scenery of the Continental Divide. Twist your way through the remarkable Spiral Tunnels and pass by Craigellachie, the site of the 'Last Spike' of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Look out for incredible wildlife too, from elk to grizzly bears, seen at all angles from the glass-domed carriages. 

" The best thing for me was being able to see the spectacular views of the Rockies and the wildlife that lives there, whilst travelling in such a luxurious environment. " - Dan
" We saw the bears and cubs coming out of hibernation. It was truly amazing! " - Marian
" It's like a first-class flight through the Rockies. " - Victoria


Marvel at beautiful landscapes from glass-domed carriages as you carve through the otherwise inaccessible terrain of the Canadian Rockies. The train travels at an average speed of 30 mph to provide the best viewing and photographic opportunities - you’ll be treated to spectacular views of winding river canyons, pristine forests and dramatic mountain ranges. It’s a front-row seat to nature’s most astonishing display.

Gaze in awe as the sheer side of a mountain towers above, steep canyons expand below and the untamed western wilderness wraps around you. Experience Western Canada’s most remarkable attractions as you pass by national parks, natural wonders and tranquil shimmering lakes. Wherever you look, each piece of the adventure will take your breath away.


Travelling on Rocky Mountaineer is as much about the culinary experience and outstanding service as it is about the stunning scenery.
Indulge in fine dining courtesy of award-winning chefs using the finest, locally sourced ingredients from the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy connecting with your fellow travellers over delicious food and wine inspired by the very region that the train is passing through.
Think maple-cured, coho salmon or braised Alberta beef short ribs, all complemented by award-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley and refreshing local craft beers.

Rocky Mountaineer Hosts make the journey on board unforgettable. They will tell you stories about historic sites, flora, fauna and wildlife and provide exceptional service to make you feel instantly at home. It is a truly relaxing experience from start to finish.

" The food was wonderful - it's making my mouth water just thinking about it! " - Victoria
" The Hosts were outstanding - not only because of their knowledge but their way of making you feel that you were the only person on board. " - Marian
