Vancouver to Jasper Train

On this three-day luxury train experience between Vancouver and Jasper, you will travel along the Sea to Sky corridor through the Coast Mountains, passing Mount Currie as it looms over the rich Pemberton Valley. Take in views of serene lakes and hilltop orchards above farming communities, eventually crossing over one of the highest railway bridges in the world. Continue through rolling rills before making your way to the salmon-rich waters of the Fraser River, the Valley of a Thousand Peaks and view the dramatic Mount Terry Fox. Finally, Mount Robson – the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies – will greet you as you approach your final destination, the mountain town of Jasper.

Enjoy gourmet, made-to-order breakfasts and lunches paired with local beers, wines, and cocktails all inspired by the diverse flavors and local ingredients of Western Canada as you look forward to your stay in the majestic Rocky Mountains.
