This process is not mandatory, but at these locations, you will receive your boarding pass, luggage tags, and the name of your Kamloops accommodation.

You will be served a gourmet breakfast and lunch onboard the train which are made to order. You will also receive complimentary snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the rail journey. In the event that the train is running behind schedule, an additional dinner service may be provided at your seat.

*You will gain an hour on this day due to the time change from Mountain Time (MT) to Pacific Time (PT).

Your checked luggage will travel separately from the train and will be waiting for you in your assigned room at your Kamloops accommodation. Please note there is no overhead or under-seat storage so any items that you carry onboard must fit at your feet.

The expected arrival time in Kamloops will be between 17:15 – 18:30 PM (PT).

Upon arrival at the Kamloops train siding, you will be transferred by motorcoach to your overnight accommodation which is provided by Rocky Mountaineer. While onboard the motorcoach to your assigned hotel you will receive your room keys so that you may skip check-in and head straight to your room where your luggage will be waiting for you. You will also be given additional instructions for your luggage the next morning.

Your accommodation in Kamloops will be of a moderate standard but will include all the essential amenities to make your short overnight stay comfortable.

When passing through the hotel lobby, please take note of the pick-up time for tomorrow morning’s motorcoach transfer from your Kamloops hotel to the train station. The pick-up time is generally between 06:45 – 07:00 AM (PT) but you will need to reconfirm as it is subject to change.

Day 2:

*Please confirm your pick up time the evening prior as it may vary from departure to departure.

Prior to meeting in the lobby for the transfer, your luggage will need to be picked up from your room. On the way to your Kamloops hotel the previous night, you will receive instructions for the time at which you should place your luggage in the hallway outside of your door.

If your luggage is not out by the specified time, a Rocky Mountaineer representative will come by and knock on your door to retrieve it. Your luggage will then be transported separately to your final destination for today’s journey – Vancouver.

The train will depart Kamloops around 08:00 AM PT*.

Spend another full day travelling onboard the Rocky Mountaineer to the coastal city of Vancouver and complete the train portion of your journey.

You will once again be served a gourmet breakfast and lunch onboard the train which are made to order. You will also receive complimentary snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the rail journey. In the event that the train is running behind schedule, an additional dinner service may be provided at your seat.

The expected arrival time in Vancouver will be between 18:15 – 19:30 PM (PT)

When you arrive at your final destination for today’s journey and disembark the train, your luggage will be waiting on the motorcoach going to your assigned drop-off location. Shortly prior to the arrival of the train in Vancouver, your onboard host will make an announcement with further instructions.

Should your assigned Drop-Off Location be different than your overnight accommodation, please ensure that you have collected your luggage from the motorcoach and are able to bring it with you as it may be a short walk or an additional taxi to your hotel. If time permits, your bus driver may be able to drop you off at your hotel.

Things to Consider:

  • Rocky Mountaineer’s staff will look after all of your needs while onboard, however, some requests cannot be accommodated such as seats, train coach location or first/ second meal times. Don’t worry, you’ll be treated like royalty onboard.
  • Rail travel in North America is occasionally subject to unforeseen delays. While Rocky Mountaineer is treated as a priority on the train tracks it uses, regular delays do occur.
  • In North America, it is acceptable to recognize good service in a tangible manner. Onboard the train, you will be surrounded by a team of people dedicated to service excellence. Their gratuities are pre-paid as part of your package price so tipping is not required while onboard. Please note: gratuities have not been pre-paid for the rest of your trip ie. for driver guides, tour escorts, hotel porterage, or any VIA Rail Services.
  • Alberta is on Mountain Standard Time (MT) and British Columbia is on Pacific Standard Time (PT).
