The carriages of this train have transparent walls to be able to observe the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and nature.
Train tours are one of the most memorable experiences you can ever have. On this occasion we want to recommend a route that few know about but that is actually worth it. This is Canada’s iconic day train, which only runs from sunrise to sunset. Her route includes Banff, Jasper, Lake Louise, Kamloops, Whistler, and Vancouver, where you’ll enjoy truly spectacular views, along with impeccable service.
The Rocky Mountaineer offers us the view of rugged alpine terrain and wildlife that can only be appreciated from the comfort of its carriages. Its service aims to offer its customers a unique experience. It is special for those who enjoy the tranquility of wooded landscapes but who at the same time want to enjoy comfort.
From the sparkling waters of Vancouver to the crisp mountain air of Jasper, the Rocky Mountaineer train travels through many of Canada’s best landscapes and cities.
Its three main attractions are the following: The rocky mountains of Jasper. The small town offers its visitors adventure, discovery and relaxation. Then we have Banff, a town that was established in 1885. Today it offers a wide variety of excellent restaurants.You can also enjoy strolling along Banff Avenue or trying the experiences that the national park offers. Banff was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for the mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes and waterfalls. Finally we have Lake Louise next to the nearby village that bears the same name. Known for its shimmering turquoise blue waters and stunning glacier-covered peaks, Lake Louise offers a surreal paddling experience in the warm summer months and one of the world’s most scenic skating rinks in winter.
Route 1 connects Vancouver and Banff, the first line the company implemented when it was founded in 1990. Memorable sights along the way include the charming Lake Louise train station, Stoney Creek Bridge, spectacular river canyons Fraser and Thompson and the location where the Last Spike was added to the railroad in 1885.
The route through the clouds traverses the last of Canada’s two main transcontinental railways: the Canadian Northern Line, which dates back to 1917. It travels between Jasper and Vancouver, taking the impressive Yellowhead Pass through the mountains.
The highlight of the trip is the view of snow-capped Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rocky Mountains.
