Canada Rail Vacations is proud to donate a tour package valued at over $6000 to the Branch Out Foundation of Calgary for their annual Bike Tour.
Branch Out Foundation’s 2019 Bike Tour will be held the weekend of June 15, 2019 in Panorama, BC. This annual event goes to support neurological research in Calgary and area. Some notable riders in the 2019 event include former Tour de France competitor Tyler Hamilton and Olympic gold medallist Ross Rebagliati. In addition to the bike ride, there will be a fundraising party with some excellent prizes to be auctioned off. One of the live auction items is a Canada Rail Vacations package for two, as follows. This package can be customized to your specific dates of travel within October 2019.
You’ll be picked up from your Calgary and area accommodation and enjoy a private transfer to Banff, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. One night of Superior hotel accommodation is included (Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Rimrock Resort or The Moose).
The rail portion of your Canada Rail Vacation will begin aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train in their exquisite GoldLeaf Service glass dome car. From Banff, the train will glide west through the Canadian Rockies. The Rocky Mountaineer’s dome cars will provide you with uncompromising views of snow-packed peaks, tumbling mountain streams and earth-carving glaciers. After crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter British Columbia. The Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park, all noted landmarks, will add to the awe of your journey. The glacier-clad mountains give way to arid grassland hills of the Kamloops region. One night of accommodation in Kamloops is included in this package.
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 Coast Mountains 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 transform the Fraser River into a froth of surging rapids. Upon reaching Vancouver in the late afternoon, you can explore the city at your own pace. One night in one of our Superior hotels in Vancouver is included (Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Fairmont Waterfront or Sheraton Wall Centre).
Your tour ends upon check out of your hotel in Vancouver. The day is yours to enjoy Vancouver. Thank you very much for supporting the Branch Out Foundation.
