8 Day Vancouver & the Rockies by Rail
Ride the rails through the spectacular Rocky Mountains, exploring the dynamic Canadian landscape along the way.
It all begins in the coastal city of Vancouver as you experience picturesque splendor with the assistance of a private guide. Discover the West Coast’s rich Indigenous heritage, visit historic and hipster Gastown, and take in the spectacular views from the city's famous harbor. Then it's all aboard for an unforgettable experience: an overnight train journey from Vancouver to Jasper, offering a series of majestic scenes best viewed from the train's observation carriage and panoramic glass roof. Watch as the scenery transforms into cascading waterfalls, river passes, and the range's tallest peak Mount Robson. Once in Jasper, your private driver-guide whisks you through the natural treasures that make the park a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Traverse the colossal Columbia Icefield, exploring the ancient Athabasca Glacier on foot and meditating on the millennia of natural history. The journey continues in Banff, a playground of rugged beauty and Canada's first national park. Admire the views of photogenic Lake Minnewanka and the aptly named Surprise Corner in between spotting the diverse wildlife that calls the park home. Your adventure concludes in Calgary, a private transfer providing one final look at Canada's natural majesty.
