Itinerary

Day 1 Calgary to Banff

Upon arriving in Calgary, you’ll be transported to Banff, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Surrounded by towering, snow-powdered peaks, few, if any, mountain resort towns can match Banff’s rugged beauty.

Day 2 Banff

A guided 4.5 hour tour will help maximize your Banff experience. You’ll visit Bow Falls (made famous by Marilyn Monroe in River of No Return). Tunnel Mountain Drive will afford you spectacular views of Mount Rundle, Cascade Mountain and Banff’s famous hoodoos. Your tour will be capped by a ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain aboard the Banff Gondola, providing you with a true mountaintop experience. Standing at 2,281 meters (7,486 feet), you’ll be afforded panoramic views of the surrounding Bow Valley.

Day 3 Banff to Kamloops

The rail portion of your Canadian vacation will begin aboard a Rocky Mountaineer train. From Banff, it will glide west into the Canadian Rockies. The Mountaineer’s dome cars will provide you with uncompromising views of snow-packed peaks, tumbling mountain streams and earth-carving glaciers. The Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park (12 percent of it is solid ice), all noted landmarks, will add to the awe of your journey. After crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter British Columbia. The glacier-clad mountains give way to arid grassland hills of the Kamloops region. Overnight in Kamloops.

Day 4 Kamloops to Vancouver

Your Rocky Mountaineer train will continue west before turning south into the Fraser River Valley. With the return of the mountains, the landscape again changes dramatically. The Canadian Cascades combine with thick fir forests and the charging Fraser River to create a spectacular setting. Along the way you’ll pass Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon with sheer, towering walls that transforms the Fraser River into a froth of surging rapids. Upon reaching Vancouver in the late afternoon, you can use your two-day “Hop-on Hop-off” bus pass to tour Vancouver at your own pace, as it accesses the city’s most popular attractions including Gastown, Chinatown, Granville Island, Stanley Park and the Robson Street Shopping District. 

Day 5 Vancouver

Your tour ends upon checking out of your hotel. Thank you for travelling with CanadaRail.ca.

This itinerary is also available in reverse on Sundays, Mondays & Thursdays.
