The Experience

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!

Glide past 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.

After an overnight stay at a hotel in Kamloops, your rail adventure continues as you set off towards the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful coastal city of Vancouver. Marvel at views of winding river canyons, pristine forest and dramatic mountains as you follow the Fraser River. 

The service was second to none, food top quality and the ride through the Rockies was incredible!

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.

Savour the delicious cuisine

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.
