Calgary to Vancouver

You’ll be the envy of your fellow travellers when you stop for more than one night in Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper. With your additional nights in the Rockies, you will have time to relax and feel the laid back atmosphere of these unique mountain towns, and just sit back in outdoor chairs alongside Lake Louise. From the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the shores of the Pacific Ocean, you will see the very best of Canada’s landscapes: mountains, lakes, glaciers, and waterfalls.

The world-famous Rocky Mountaineer is truly the trip of a lifetime. This luxury sightseeing train travels exclusively through the Canadian Rockies by daylight, slowing to highlight natural marvels. While indulging in hand-crafted, local cuisine, top-shelf beverages, and endless snacks and treats, you will listen to professional guides who will narrate Western Canada’s storied history and highlight unforgettable natural beauty. The Rocky Mountaineer stops overnight in the lake town of Kamloops so guests can sleep in a comfortable hotel and get ready for the rest of their adventure.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Calgary

After arriving at the Calgary International Airport and checking into your downtown hotel you will have the rest of the day to explore! Combining western charm with urban amenities, Calgary is home to many unique spots.

Spend the day strolling through Prince’s Island Park and along the Bow River, get a great view of the city from the Calgary Tower or check out one of the many trendy neighborhoods such as Kensington or Inglewood. Spend the night in your Calgary hotel room.

Day 2 - Scenic Transfer from Calgary to Banff

Explore Calgary in the morning before boarding a bus on route to Banff. This will be a quick and scenic trip and the rest of the day is yours to explore Banff. This charming little mountain town is home to lots of different dining options, walking trails and the Banff Upper Hot Springs, an outdoor hot pool with a great view of Mount Rundle. Spend the next two nights in your Banff hotel room.

Day 3 - Banff Sightseeing Tour including Gondola

Today you’ll be on a 4.5-hour guided tour through the towering Rundle, Tunnel, Cascade and Norquay Mountains. Learn about the wind-shaped hoodoos and experience Surprise Corner along Tunnel Mountain Drive.

Take a gentle gondola ride up to the top of Sulphur Mountain for fantastic views, interpretive boardwalks and photo opportunities. The rest of the afternoon in Banff is yours to spend walking some local trails, playing golf or relaxing as you choose.

Day 4 - Banff to Lake Louise: Mountains, Lakes and Waterfalls Tour

Your bus leaves in the morning and offers you a guided tour of the area between Banff and Lake Louise. Cross the Continental Divide, and pass through Yoho National Park offering scenic sights such as Takakkaw Falls, Kicking Horse Pass, Emerald Lake and the Natural Rock Bridge that spans across the Kicking Horse River. You will spend the next two nights at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. This world famous lake is known as the Jewel of the Canadian Rockies and is one of the most photographed locations in the world.

Day 5 - Free Day in Lake Louise

Choose how you want to spend the day! Options include canoeing, hiking a scenic mountain trail or hanging back, relaxing and taking some pictures.

Your vacation planner can give recommendations and help you arrange whatever kind of activity you choose.

Day 6 - Sightseeing Tour from Lake Louise to Jasper including Columbia Icefields Excursion

Today you’re riding along the most beautiful highway in Canada—the Icefields Parkway. Highlights include stops at Crowfoot Glacier, Bow Lake, Peyto Lake, The Columbia Icefield and the powerful Athabasca Falls.

While at the Athabasca Glacier, climb aboard the Ice Explorer—a specialized bus that travels directly on to the glacier. Listen as your guide explains all about its natural wonders. This is the day to pose for your new profile picture. Spend the next two nights in your Jasper hotel room.

Day 7 - Jasper Sightseeing Tour including Skytram

Spend the day getting to know Jasper! First stop, Maligne Canyon, where 10,000 years of erosion have created the deepest canyon in the Rockies. Start off with a short and easy walk, admiring the Maligne River and its many waterfalls.

After that, it’s over to the disappearing Medicine Lake, followed by the fairy tale-like Maligne Lake. The rest of the day in Jasper is yours and you’ll have tickets to the Jasper Skytram to enjoy at your leisure.

Day 8 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Jasper to Kamloops

Raise your glass to your first day aboard the Rocky Mountaineer! Mount Robson—the highest mountain in the region—will greet you as you begin your train journey.

Dine on locally-sourced meals and enjoy complimentary drinks as you head west through the Canadian Rockies with snow-covered peaks and mountain streams keeping you company along the way. You’ll eventually begin your descent out of the mountains to spend the night in your Kamloops hotel room.

Day 9 - Rocky Mountaineer Train from Kamloops to Vancouver

The mountains return and combine with thick fir forests and the mighty Fraser River to create a spectacular setting for your last 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 advantage of your “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass to explore the city at your own pace. Overnight in your downtown Vancouver hotel room.
