On the golf course, the views are no different: you’ll be immersed in pristine natural beauty on three of Canada’s top golf courses. Off the beaten path, Kananaskis will be your new golf-travel destination and your friends will beg you to take them next time. Luxury train travel meets five-star golf!

Daily Itinerary

Day 1 - Vancouver Arrival

Arrive in Vancouver, known for its cultural and linguistic diversity. This city is very lively and home to a bustling arts scene so you will find that there is no shortage of things to do and places to explore. Popular sites include: the urban jungle of Stanley Park, Canada’s largest Chinatown and the Robson Street Shopping District. Spend tonight in your downtown Vancouver hotel room.

Day 2 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Vancouver to Kamloops

Climb aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and raise your glass as the train heads northeast out of Vancouver. Your journey across Canada has officially begun! Travel alongside the mighty waters of the salmon-rich Fraser River and pass the powerful rapids of Hell’s Gate.

Towards the end of today you’ll approach the drier grasslands of Kamloops, where you will be spending the night in your hotel room.

Day 3 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Kamloops to Banff

As you travel east towards the province of Alberta, you are greeted by the Canadian Rockies. Rocky lakeshores, snow-capped mountain peaks and crisp glacial streams accompany you as you dine on locally-sourced, gourmet meals.

Learn about points of interest such as the astoundingly high Kicking Horse Canyon and the Spiral Tunnels. End off today in the friendly mountain resort town of Banff where you will spend the next four nights in your hotel room.

Day 4 - Golf at the Fairmont Banff Springs

Renowned for its panoramic beauty and history, The Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course is situated in Banff National Park, a mile high in the Canadian Rockies. Designed by world-renowned golf architect Stanley Thompson in 1928, the original 18-hole course was later complemented by the construction of an adjoining 9 holes, designed by Cornish and Robinson and opened in 1989; thereby completing this championship layout. Shuttle service is provided by the Banff Springs Hotel.

Day 5 - Golf at Kananaskis Country Golf Course

Kananaskis Country Golf Course is located about an hour from Banff with two 18 hole golf courses. Discover awe-inspiring views – and renowned golf layouts to match. Here, immaculate lush fairways, over 120 silica sand bunkers, and six sets of tee boxes are framed by glacier-fed creeks and ponds, the cascading Kananaskis River and glimpses of majestic wildlife. This facility is a Canada Rail Vacations favourite. One round is included with the tour but playing both courses is highly recommended. Should you wish to play an additional round, please ask your Vacation Planner for details. Your private driver will provide transportation to and from the golf course.

Day 6 - Golf in Canmore - Silvertip or Stewart Creek

Your private driver will accompany you from Banff to Canmore. This short drive will give you the opportunity to tee off no later than noon. Tee times are available at Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club and Silvertip Golf Course. Your driver-guide will be available post round for your return to Banff. Your driver’s also available for a later pick up should you wish to have a post round beverage or dinner at the clubhouse.

Day 7 - Scenic Transfer Banff to Calgary

Enjoy a two hours scenic transfer to Calgary, Alberta’s liveliest city. Famous for its yearly stampede, this is a city that prides itself on its western charm. We’d like to thank you for travelling with Canada Rail Vacations and look forward to hosting you again in the future.
