Rocky Mountaineer Logo GoldDiscover the majestic Canadian Rockies in a way like no other with an unforgettable journey through Western Canada onboard the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer.

Rocky Mountaineer is the largest privately owned luxury tourist train company in the world and has welcomed almost two million guests from all corners of the globe during the last 25 years.
 

This world renowned train service allows guests to enjoy a luxury glass roofed train journey combined with legendary scenery, exquisite cuisine, comfort and hospitality.

The two-day rail journey follows the historic route constructed over 100 years ago joining East and West and offers a truly unforgettable Canadian rail experience. Considered by many to be a ‘bucket-list’ trip of a lifetime this is without doubt the very best way to experience this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

 

The Rocky Mountaineer train travels both eastbound and westbound between the cosmopolitan coastal city of Vancouver (British Columbia), the resort towns of Whistler, Jasper or Banff and Calgary (Alberta). 

Travelling during daylight hours only you will be sure never to miss out on any of the breathtaking scenery or iconic wildlife along the way. No matter which trip you choose, you are guaranteed to sit nose pressed to the window as your knowledgeable Host delivers live storytelling, slowing the train as you come across bald eagles or grizzly bears - perfect for those all important photographs. 

Rocky Mountaineer offers a range of distinctive rail routes , each with its own unique sights, through the wild beauty of Canada’s rugged snow-capped mountains and glacier-fed lakes.

 

 

Onboard you will experience warm, friendly, Canadian hospitality with your choice of GoldLeaf Service or SilverLeaf Service – there is a package available to suite every budget. 

In 2015 Rocky Mountaineer celebrated it’s 25 year anniversary, however, like many modern businesses they recognise that they owe much of this success to the unspoiled scenery, fresh air and abundant wildlife of Canada’s West. As a result of this knowledge, the company is very active in developing innovative sustainable tourism and corporate social responsibility policies and programs including local community initiatives across Western Canada.

The City of Kamloops is located right in the heart of British Columbia's Interior next to the joining of the North and South Thompson Rivers.
