Rocky Mountaineer is a Canadian tour company offering Western Canadian vacation packages that operates trains on four rail routes through British Columbia and Alberta.

This world-renowned, luxurious train travels by daylight through the wild beauty of Canada's West and is the best way to experience the majestic Canadian Rockies.

Rocky Mountaineer offers over 45 Canadian vacation packages and four unique rail routes - three train journeys through British Columbia and Alberta to Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper and Calgary, and one train excursion from Vancouver to Whistler.

Each trip is two days long with an overnight stay at a hotel en route because the Rocky Mountaineer does not travel at night. The first day from Vancouver, includes the suburbs, the Fraser Valley, the Fraser Canyon and then into fairly pastoral country with a lot of lakes, which changes to a much drier desert-type region as you approach Kamloops. During this second day's travel, the scenery rapidly becomes mountainous and the train travels along the Bow River Gorge and into the Rockies.

Proposed Routes

In 2013, Rocky Mountaineer introduces a new three-day rail route, Coastal Passage, connecting Seattle to the Canadian Rockies. This train trip is the better way to truly soak in the scenery.

Rocky Mountaineer was awarded the "World's Leading Travel Experience by Train" for many years. The Society of American Travel Writers, the world’s largest organization of professional travel journalists and photographers, rated the Rocky Mountaineer as the world's top train ride in 2009.
