There are many reasons why the Canadian Rockies continuously rank as one of the top travel destinations in the world. Whether it be the captivating scenery of snowy mountains and sparkling lakes, the majestic wildlife, warm Canadian hospitality, or the diverse culture and food scene, there's a reason for everybody to explore Western Canada.  

There's no better way to experience this unique part of the world than traveling by train and relaxing in comfort as the scenery rolls by. Rocky Mountaineer, the largest luxury train operator in the world, offers passengers the tickets to experience the most exclusive and stunning sights of Western Canada in total luxury. 

Rocky Mountaineer provides an unmatched experience onboard while taking passengers to some of the most beautiful destinations found around the globe. Connecting Vancouver to quintessentially Canadian mountain towns, such as Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff, Rocky Mountaineer cruises along the rails at a relaxing pace to allow the passing scenery to be taken in thoroughly.   

Expect to be pampered during the entire journey. The breathtaking scenery is paired with compelling storytelling from the onboard hosts and exquisite cuisine. Take a break from sitting in a plush, reclining seat and step onto the outdoor viewing platform to stretch and get a breath of fresh, Rocky Mountain air. Surrounded by views at every angle, the custom-built, glass-dome rail cars travel by daylight, stopping to overnight in hotels, allowing passengers to soak up the views--from rushing rivers to eagles soaring--from the comfort of their seats.  

Simply put, Rocky Mountaineer is a must-do travel experience that offers an unparalleled journey through one of the world’s most-sought after travel destinations.
