First Passage to the West

Rocky’s Mountaineer’s most popular route, First Passage to the West retraces the steps of the 19th century explorers who first marvelled at this untamed wilderness, and gives a living history lesson on the building of a nation.

Includes:

  • 2 days onboard Rocky Mountaineer
  • 1 night hotel accommodation
  • 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches
  • Snacks and beverages onboard the train

Itinerary:
Train Day 1: Vancouver – Kamloops

Board Rocky Mountaineer in the urban oasis of Vancouver, British Columbia, and journey through the farmlands of the Fraser Valley. From fertile greenery, the landscape transforms to the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains. You’ll see the mighty Fraser River and the raging whitewater of Hell’s Gate. Then, the landscape undergoes another transformation and you’ll find yourself amid sagebrush and desert. You will pull in to overnight at a hotel in the city of Kamloops.

Train Day 2: Kamloops – Lake Louise or Banff
As your mountain adventure continues and you travel east along the South Thompson River, you’ll witness historic Craigellachie. This spot marks where the Last Spike was driven home on the Canadian Pacific Railway line, uniting the nation. You’ll gaze in wonder at cascading waterfalls and at icy glaciers spilling over the lips of the peaks above, on your way to the charming alpine town of Banff and the brilliant waters of Lake Louise. And all of this craggy wilderness is yours to embrace, from the comfort of your luxurious Rocky Mountaineer coach.

Journey through the Clouds

By geological standards, the Canadian Rockies are a relatively young mountain range. And because they’re remote, they are essentially unspoiled. Journey through the Clouds takes you through some of the most untouched, most breathtaking natural beauty on the planet.

Includes:

  • 2 days onboard Rocky Mountaineer
  • 1 night hotel accommodation
  • 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches
  • Snacks and beverages onboard the train

Itinerary:
Train Day 1: Vancouver – Kamloops

Your journey starts gently, moving through the fertile farmland of the Fraser Valley and the rolling hills of the Coast Mountains. As your train gains altitude beyond the town of Hope, the Fraser River narrows and the waters run rampant. The train will slow to fully appreciate Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon where the volume of water rushing through is about three times greater than Niagara Falls. At the midway point of your journey, near your overnight stop in Kamloops, the river valley remains lush and green while sagebrush covers the surrounding desert-like hills.

Train Day 2: Kamloops – Jasper
When you board the train after spending the night in a charming Kamloops hotel, you will follow the North Thompson River, slowing to take in Pyramid Falls, a 91.5 metre cascade of whitewater. After giving you time to pick up your jaw, the train continues on to the Yellowhead Pass. Moving past teal-green lakes, you’ll close in on Mount Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies. It’s so high it has its own weather system. The striking thing about this route is that once you’ve seen what you think is the most beautiful sight ever, something even more stunning comes along. To cap it all off, you’ll wind up in the alluring alpine town of Jasper.

Rainforest to Gold Rush

  • 2 nights hotel accommodation
  • 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches (Eastbound journeys)
  • Snacks and beverages onboard the train

Itinerary:
Train Day 1: Vancouver – Whistler

Beginning at the foot of the Coast Mountains, overlooking the stunning city of Vancouver, British Columbia, you’ll roll along the scenic fjord of Howe Sound. Prepare to be amazed as you make your way past massive cliffs, canyons, and stunning bridges. You’ll then arrive at world-famous Whistler, the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games host city. There, you’ll explore the picturesque village and enjoy a relaxing stay at one of Whistler’s hotels

Train Day 2: Whistler - Quesnel
The next day, you’ll depart from Whistler and travel up the Pemberton Valley, as you glide beside gorgeous Anderson and Seton Lakes. Turning north and west, the landscape becomes more rugged. More wild. Sheer cliffs on one side, milky green lakes on the other. You’ll emerge into the arid ranchland near Quesnel, Canada’s gold rush capital. The gold rush may be over, but there are still many treasures to be found in this historic region.

Train Day 3: Quesnel - Jasper
After an overnight hotel stay in Quesnel, you’ll head north again. Wide-eyed, you’ll experience mountainous terrain, untouched lakes, and incredible waterfalls. You’ll gradually gain altitude and enter the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The awesome sight of Mount Robson, the range’s highest peak, will greet you as you wind your way to the alluring alpine town of Jasper, Alberta. Every step of the way, your emotions will follow the extremes of the journey, from silent awe to uncontained elation.
