About Rocky Mountaineer
Considered by many to be the very best way to experience Western Canada and the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer carries you in the lap of luxury on a relaxing journey of superior service and jaw-dropping scenery through the renowned landscapes of British Columbia and the famous Rocky Mountains of Canada.
Rocky Mountaineer travels through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world including the Canadian Rocky Mountains, a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the destination resort towns of Jasper and Banff, Alberta. Traveling by daylight, it follows four distinct routes through British Columbia and Alberta, offering firsthand views of the brilliant landscapes and ensuring none of the sights are missed. From craggy mountain cliffs and snow-capped peaks to dry, desert-like hills and pristine, glacial-fed lakes, the backdrop for this train trip is constantly changing and incredibly breathtaking, no matter which route you travel on.
On Rocky Mountaineer’s flagship route, First Passage to the West, guests are swept off to a land of yesteryear, where the sights include a glimpse into the historical adventures of the railway, including the trials and tribulations of those who worked so hard to build it. This is the only passenger train that travels along this route offering first-hand views of significant landmarks such as the Spiral Tunnels, an engineering masterpiece, or Craigellachie, the site where the last spike was driven in Canada’s transcontinental rail line.
On Rocky Mountaineer’s GoldLeaf Service, guests simply sit back, relax and enjoy exceptional service and panoramic views from the glass domes of the famed two-story GoldLeaf coaches. Onboard Hosts tend to your every need in making this seamless travel experience most enjoyable. In the private dining room, guests enjoy outstanding three-course, à la carte meals, made with the finest and freshest ingredients indigenous to the regions passing by your window. Delicious selections of Wild BC salmon, Triple “A” Alberta beef and locally sourced vegetables are created by talented, world-renowned onboard chefs. Award-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley complement the gourmet Western Canadian culinary experience.
Spending two glorious days on the train, you are bound to connect with other travelers along the route, creating lasting friendships and memories as you experience the amazing journey together. Interactions with Onboard Hosts are easy and friendly as they come through the coach sharing fascinating tales of the passing regions, pointing out photo opportunities, wildlife and delivering refreshments.
The tracks the train travels on were laid over 100 years ago, following riverways for the majority of the journey. It is not uncommon to spot a bald eagle or osprey swooping down into the river to catch a salmon or nesting in a tree alongside the tracks. The engineer and staff at the front of the train will call back on radio to alert passengers of upcoming animal spotting. A common call, “Bear on the left, bear on the left!” has guests scrambling for their cameras and darting to the opposite side of the car. There is also a good chance you will spot elk, deer, mountain goats, moose and more!
There is no limit to the amazing scenery and wildlife you will encounter on Rocky Mountaineer‘s rail journeys. The memories you create while in Western Canada will last a lifetime and the photos you take will capture this amazing experience to share with all. A journey onboard Rocky Mountaineer is truly the best way to see British Columbia and the Canadian Rockies.
