Soaring peaks, deep blue lakes, pristine wilderness and a stunning journey through the clouds . . . you get all this and more when you board the Rocky Mountaineer for one of the world's great train journeys. Starting on Canada's Pacific Coast in the lovely city of Vancouver the train heads east up through the heart of the Rockies where the views are breathtaking. This is a wonderful and relaxing way to see the best scenery that Canada has to offer and by letting the train take the strain you won't miss any of it while relaxing in the comfort of the Canadian Pacific railway's observation cars.
Say goodbye to Vancouver and head for the heart of British Columbia's interior. On today's journey you will see dramatic changes in scenery from lush green fields of the Fraser Valley, forests and winding river canyons and the peaks of the Coast and Cascade Mountains. The day ends as the train travels along the shores of the Kamloops Lake and into the town. Overnight in Kamloops.
Today you will head up into the mighty Rockies and the scenery is truly spectacular. Highlights include the amazing corkscrew tunnels that form part of the rich history of the railroad, climbing up over Rogers Pass and going through Kicking Horse canyon and travelling alongside glaciers and snow capped peaks. This spectacular journey ends in the great mountain town of Banff in the heart of the Rockies.
