The majestic beauty of North America is truly breath-taking. Think uninterrupted vistas of soaring mountains, unending forests of evergreen pine and huge translucent glaciers calving into the ocean. The best way to experience every aspect of this grandeur is to carve your way through the Rocky Mountains on-board Rocky Mountaineer and take to the Pacific Ocean on-board a cruise ship to Alaska.
There are many reasons why the Canadian Rockies continuously rank as one of the top travel destinations in the world. Whether it be the awe-inspiring vistas of towering mountains and sparkling lakes, the local wildlife, or the friendly hospitality, there is a reason for everybody to explore Western Canada.
With so much to see, there is no better way to experience this unique part of the world than travelling by rail and relaxing in the comfort of your seat as the scenery rolls by. For over 30 years, Rocky Mountaineer has taken guests from around the world on remarkable journeys through the Canadian Rockies.
Expect to be pampered from the moment you begin your journey. On-board Hosts regale you with details of a dramatic past and charm you with fascinating historical facts of landmarks just outside your window. Dine on a menu inspired by the bounty of the passing regions, highlighting ingredients such as Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef. Enjoy wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley and local craft beers with your fellow travellers. Step onto the outdoor viewing platform to breathe in the fresh mountain air.
Discover the region’s most remarkable sights, including national parks, natural wonders, and historic landmarks, as you traverse a picturesque landscape that will be forever framed in your memory.
After an incredible day on the train, you’ll be ready to close your eyes and dream about all you’ve seen in a comfortable hotel bed. That way, you can explore the region’s cosmopolitan cities and picturesque towns without giving up a single minute of your beauty sleep. After all, you’ll want to be alert on-board, so you don’t miss a moment of the magic unfolding.
The best part? You can seamlessly combine your Rocky Mountaineer journey with an Alaska Cruise, mixing snow-capped mountain peaks and glacier fjords for one epic experience. Journey to a place that’s truly above and beyond extraordinary. Choose from a selection of incredible rail and cruise itineraries expertly designed by Rocky Mountaineer or add a rail package to any Alaska cruise. Vancouver is the home port for many cruises making it easy to pair an amazing rail journey with an incredible cruise experience.
“What a unique way to see the Rockies up close! You have perfect, panoramic views from the dome windows looking out at the mountains and lakes in all their glory. It was a photographer’s dream.”
