 “Majestic mountain scenery, glittering glaciers, abundant wildlife, exquisite dining … Discovering the Rockies by train is the ultimate journey of the senses. It’s so much more than a train trip — it’s a transformational experience.”

“Regardless of what part of Canada you call home, the Canadian Rockies deserve to be on your bucket list,” says Liz Dionne, Maritime Travel counsellor, Truro, NS. “And the hands-down most thrilling way to experience this iconic Canadian landscape is aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train.”

The only passenger rail service between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies, the Rocky Mountaineer train whisks passengers across plunging gorges, over dramatic mountain passes, and through Jasper and Banff National Parks – both in a UNESCO World Heritage site.

For an amazing holiday experience right here in Canada, doing the Rockies by train is hard to beat,” says Liz. “You are wined and dined and given the white glove treatment all the way. And the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

You can’t go wrong.”
