Daily Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Calgary and Scenic Transfer to Banff

Arrive in Calgary and enjoy the scenery as you leave the city and transfer out to the mountains. The transfer to Banff takes approximately two hours. The resort town of Banff is located within Banff National Park, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. You’ll have some time to explore before spending the night in this charming mountain town.

Day 2 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Banff to Kamloops

Today your spectacular train journey commences. After a short transfer to the Banff Station, board the Rocky Mountaineer train. Toast a breathtaking trip through the Rockies with your hosts and enjoy an uncompromised view of the untouched landscapes our country is famous for.

Learning about landmarks like the Spiral Tunnels and Glacier National Park as you view them from your dome car will add a sense of awe to your ride. After a full day of mountain peaks, fine dining, and awe-inspiring views, a dramatic change of scenery will take place as you approach the drier environment of the city of Kamloops, your home for the night.

Day 3 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Kamloops to Vancouver

Today the mountains return and combine with thick fir forests and the Fraser River to create a spectacular setting for your second day aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. Today, one of the highlights will be passing by Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon that transforms the Fraser River into a powerful surge of water rapids.

Arrive in Vancouver in the late afternoon and after checking into your hotel, take the time to wander through this incredible city on the west coast of Canada. Overnight in your hotel located in downtown Vancouver.

Day 4 - Vancouver Departure

Your tour ends once you’ve checked out of your hotel. Another incredible bucket list item has been added to your list of world travels. Thank you for traveling with Canada Rail Vacations!
