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.

Take in the stunning scenery of the Sea to Sky Corridor on your journey to the resort town of Whistler.
