Rocky Mountaineer

Rocky Mountaineer

If you’ve ever dreamed of exploring the Canadian Rockies, there’s no better way than with a Rocky Mountaineer train journey. Canada’s luxury train company, Rocky Mountaineer, offers three distinctive rail routes connecting the Pacific city of Vancouver with the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Banff National Park — Canada’s oldest — is home to both the picturesque town of Banff, with its charming combination of a thriving arts community and rugged mountain backdrop, as well as the hamlet of Lake Louise, known for its turquoise waters and famous Victoria Glacier. The Icefields Parkway, one of the world’s most scenic drives, connects them both to Jasper National Park, about three hours north. Known for outdoor adventure and abundant wildlife, Jasper is also a Dark Sky Preserve. Both national parks are part of the area designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
