The Rocky Mountaineer
Considered one of the most scenic rail offerings in the world, the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer is more than just a train. Taking you to, and through, some of the most spectacular natural sights Canada has to offer, this rail journey offers unparalleled access to the Canadian Rockies and connects its many quaint towns and absorbing national parks with ease.
The train itself is equipped with panoramic viewing carriages from which to take in the wondrous natural scenery and onboard, you will experience service that matches the quality of the views. Hot gourmet meals are also served throughout and whichever route you opt to take, we will of course, be sure to arrange your overnight accommodation and transfers too. We will also book all of your tickets in advance, so you needn’t worry about a thing.
Upgrading your trip
All of the above is available as part of the SilverLeaf Service that will be booked for you, but if you wished to really spoil yourself you can also upgrade to the GoldLeaf Service which features full-length panoramic domed windows on the upper deck, an outdoor viewing platform, an exclusive onboard dining room, and the most luxurious of hotel stays.
