We Love

Journeying on Rocky Mountaineer’s Rainforest to Gold Rush route, carving through coastal rainforest, rugged Fraser Canyon, and the historic Cariboo gold rush region. Staying in the famous mountain resort of Whistler.

Summary

Discover the stunning scenery of Banff and Jasper, where moose and elk roam freely and lakes reflect chiselled mountains and alpine forests. Then, take the Rocky Mountaineer train between Jasper and Whistler - a less frequented but equally stunning route - and capture a piece of the mystical gold rush history. On the last leg, between the gabled alpine village of Whistler and the urban gem of Vancouver, you’ll witness some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in the natural world.
