Travelling on-board the famous Rocky Mountaineer train across Canada is the best way to make the most of any Canadian holiday.
Travel from the stunning west coast city of Vancouver to Kamloops on the Rocky Mountaineer rail service. You will see dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields of the Fraser River Valley to the desert-like environment of the interior. Highlights include the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon and the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River.
Continuing eastwards to the mighty Canadian Rockies and the province of Alberta this ultimate train journey will take you across ranch-lands, along rocky lakeshores, over high mountain passes and through remarkable tunnels that form part of the rich rail history of the Canadian Rockies. See Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific railway was driven, enjoy the climb over Roger’s Pass, the Kicking Horse Canyon, the Spiral Tunnels and the glaciers and snow capped peaks.
Top it all off with a spectacular 20 minute helicopter flight above six glaciers of Mount Resolute, Mount Cline and Whitegoat Peaks. You’ll view a 900 foot waterfall, spectacular aqua-green alpine lakes and cross over a 9000 foot mountain pass.
This trip will leave you with memories you will cherish forever.
