Train travel meets unforgettable luxury aboard the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer

“One of the world’s ultimate experiences.” “One of the world’s greatest trips.” Lonely Planet and National Geographic merely review what our founder, Martin Flanagan, has been saying for years: “Get ready for the trip of a lifetime!”

Throughout your rail tour of the Canadian Rockies you’ll be pampered beyond your wildest dreams.

The unparalleled service aboard the Rocky Mountaineer starts the moment you arrive at the station. Recline in comfortable, roomy seats aboard this world-class train, watch the most extraordinary mountains, rivers, and wildlife through oversized windows, and feel pampered as your onboard hosts bring fresh pastry, coffee, treats, and top-shelf beers, wines, and cocktails right to your seat.

Aboard a GoldLeaf Service rail car, you will take in the sights from the wrap-around glass-dome windows. Hosts will guide your experience through historic sites and natural wonders; watch all of the faces of your new friends on the train go wide as they travel alongside Hell’s Gate on the Fraser River in British Columbia. You’ll continue travelling through lush valleys through the Coast and Cascade Mountains, arriving in desert-like Kamloops for the night.

If you’re travelling to Banff, you’ll bear witness to the legendary Spiral Tunnels, cross the Continental Divide, and feel inspiration as you traverse mountain passes, rushing rivers, unforgettable canyons on a historic rail route operated by the Rocky Mountaineer.

If you’re traveling to Jasper, the train will slow down for you to see the majestic Pyramid Falls just a few metres from the train, and you will see from a short distance the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, the magnificent Mount Robson.

As you see all of these incredible sights, your onboard hosts will continually top up your beverage of choice, bring you fresh baking, snacks, and whatever else you may need to enjoy this trip of a lifetime.

Unique to the Rocky Mountaineer in GoldLeaf Service is access to a spacious outdoor vestibule and, trust us, there’s nothing like rolling through mountains, over rivers, and across rocky ridges while outside on a sunny day. You’ll take pictures that will be the envy of all of your friends while you stretch your legs and enjoy breathing in pristine mountain air.

Travel aboard the Rocky Mountaineer includes locally inspired gourmet cuisine.

In GoldLeaf Service, you’ll take breakfast and lunch in the lower dining area of the rail car. From Fraser River local salmon to wines from the Okanagan Valley, the chefs aboard this world-class train love delighting their guests with West Coast inspired cuisine. Normal service in GoldLeaf Service includes a small amuse bouche appetizer, main course, and dessert at lunch, and fresh fruit, endless coffee, and a main course with breakfast. When you leave the train, you’re never hungry.

Travel aboard the Rocky Mountaineer is truly the trip of a lifetime. Many of our guests, train enthusiasts and adventurers alike, tell us this tour is the realization of a life-long dream. When you travel with Canada Rail Vacations, you can be sure that we will make memories that will last a lifetime.
