Rocky Mountaineer Routes

story by: House of Travel

The Rocky Mountaineer has several routes between Vancouver and the Great Canadian Rockies. All journeys also operate in reverse.

FIRST PASSAGE TO THE WEST
Day 1: Vancouver ​to Kamloops
Board the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer train and pass through the fertile fields of the Fraser Valley. View the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains before entering the Fraser Canyon. You’ll see the thundering waters of Hell’s Gate and follow the Thompson River to historic Kamloops, gateway to the Interior of British Columbia.
Day 2: Kamloops to Lake Louise or Banff
Continue east through the vast ranchlands along the South Thompson River, pass Craigellachie, where the Last Spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven and enter Rogers Pass, with its tunnels, snowsheds and glistening glaciers. Climb through the Spiral Tunnels and over the Continental Divide to Banff National Park. Choose to disembark in either Lake Louise or Banff.

JOURNEY THROUGH THE CLOUDS
Day 1: Vancouver ​to Kamloops
Pass through the fertile fields of the Fraser Valley after boarding the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer. The Coast Mountain’s majestic peaks tower around you as you enter the Fraser Canyon with its spectacular raging whitewater.
Day 2: Kamloops ​to Jasper
Follow the Thompson River through rolling hills into the snowy peaks of the Monashee Mountains. View Pyramid Falls and the expansive glaciers of the Albreda Icefields before passing by Mount Robson in the Canadian Rockies.

RAINFOREST TO GOLD RUSH

Day 1: Vancouver to Whistler
Enjoy breathtaking and varied scenery from the moment you board the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer. Take in the stunning scenery of the Sea to Sky Corridor on your journey to the resort town of Whistler.
Day 2: Whistler to Quesnel
The winding shores of Anderson and Seton Lakes, the desert-like conditions of the Fraser Canyon and the vast ranchlands of the Cariboo Plateau entertain your day before you follow the banks of the Fraser River into Quesnel.
Day 3: Quesnel to Jasper
Today continue east through the forests of northern British Columbia, home to plentiful wildlife, including a large population of moose. Enter the Rocky Mountain Trench, where the Rocky Mountains rise steeply to the north and the Cariboo Mountains soar to the south. Pass Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

COASTAL PASSAGE
Day 1: Seattle to Vancouver
The newest route connects the cosmopolitan city of Seattle, USA with Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies. This route serves up the crème de la crème of Western Canada with a little bit of Americana on top. Guests will experience an all daylight journey onboard the Rocky Mountaineer travelling along the Pacific Ocean's sparkling coastline. Then stop in Vancouver for a night and connect to one of the three journeys above.
