The Rocky Mountaineer has five routes for 2012, all of which wind though British Columbia’s most breathtaking scenery, where the immense Rockies tower over glacial turquoise lakes. It is a hugely romantic way to experience such epic landscapes, granting truly exceptional views and offering travellers a chance to take in stop-offs such as Banff, and its stunning UNESCO protected surroundings, and Whistler, one of North America’s top rates Ski resorts.
The real beauty of The Rocky Mountaineer is that such ruggedly beautiful landscapes can be experienced from the palatial interior of the train’s exceptionally well appointed carriages. There are a selection of service levels to choose from, ranging from the GoldLeaf Service, which includes access to an exclusive dining room and gourmet meals, to the more affordable RedLeaf service. Whichever level travellers opt for, they can be confident of that there’s no more comfortable way to experience the majesty of the Great Outdoors.
Dialaflight offer a selection of Rocky Mountaineer packages including the popular Vancouver to Banff route.
