Rocky Mountaineer’s spectacular routes:

First Passage to the West: Vancouver: - Vancouver, Kamloops, Calgary

Retrace the steps of 19th century explorers, travel through the legendary Spiral Tunnels and pass by the spot where the last spike on the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven. This is the only passenger rail service on this historic route, and its construction united Canada from east to west. You’ll also cross the Continental Divide.

Journey through the Clouds: Vancouver, Kamloops, Jaspe

Travel through scenic valleys, the Coastal Mountain Range and the Fraser Canyon with its spectacular white water and dramatic landscape. You will follow the route of the Fraser River, home of British Columbia’s largest salmon fishing run, pass by the Albreda Glacier and magnificent Pyramid Falls, and hopefully see wildlife. The highlight of this route is majestic Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

Rainforest to Gold Rush: Whistler, Quesnel, Jasper

Travel past stunning lakes, through the tranquil coastal rainforest and the desert-like conditions of the Fraser Canyon into the vast ranchlands of the Cariboo Plateau. This is gold country where prospectors came to find their fortunes in the late 1850s and early 1860s. Visit the Gold Pan City of Quesnel, journey through the Rocky Mountain Trench, be awestruck by spectacular Mount Robson, and cap off the journey in the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies.

Whistler Sea to Sky Climb: Vancouver, Whistler

Enjoy the breathtaking scenery between Vancouver and Whistler, hosts of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. During your three and a half hour train trip you’ll journey from Vancouver, through scenic Howe Sound and the Cheakamus Canyon, across a trestle bridge, past the jagged snow-capped peaks of the Tantalus Mountains and by an extinct volcano, before finally arriving in the mountain landscape of Whistler Village.
