Your day-by-day itinerary

Customer on the Rocky Mountaineer

Day 1

Banff to Kamloops

You’ll arrive bright and early at the station in Banff, in time to watch from the platform as your train slowly pulls in and your carriage awaits! Onboard, you’ll settle into your seat from which you’ll be served regionally inspired gourmet breakfast and lunch.

Rocky Mountaineer train through the mountains

En route, you’ll be treated to panoramic views and the dramatic scenery of the Continental Divide including the mightily impressive Spiral Tunnels, as well as a chance to spot wildlife as you pass through the Glacier and Revelstoke National Park. By the evening, you’ll arrive in Kamloops where your transfer will be waiting to take you and your luggage to your centrally-located hotel. Your time here is your own and you’ll find plenty of great spots to eat along Victoria Street.

Day 2

Kamloops to Vancouver

The next morning, you’ll depart Kamloops and follow the meandering Fraser River towards Vancouver. You’ll be served breakfast on board. Today, the landscape changes dramatically and you’ll soon discover winding river canyons and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate, as well as the cool blue lakes and rugged peaks of the Cascade Mountains.

Silverleaf Service on the Rocky Mountaineer

Everywhere you look you’ll find steep gorges, flowing rapids, and dense forestry. After another regionally-inspired lunch on board, you’ll arrive into Vancouver by the evening and from here, it’s time to say goodbye to the Rocky Mountaineer and begin the next part of your Canadian adventure!

"Nothing beats the freedom of the open road, and Canada offers just that! My absolute highlights were spotting bears up close and opening my curtain to the most amazing views each morning. Those moments will stay with me forever!"
