Introducing the Rocky Mountaineer
Rocky Mountaineer is the perfect way to experience the magnificent scenery of Canada's Rocky Mountains. The train makes its way through the wild, unspoilt beauty of British Columbia and Alberta, running through forested river valleys and passing lakes framed by snowy peaks.
SilverLeaf passengers can enjoy widescreen views of the scenery from their seats, while those opting to upgrade to the GoldLeaf service will have access to the two-level, glass-domed coach, with panoramic seating upstairs and a gourmet dining car downstairs. To make the most of the scenery, the train only travels during the day time, so you'll be staying in hotels for overnight stops.
For 2016 Rocky Mountaineer will offer an all-dome fleet and we are proud to offer SilverLeaf Service as the standard level of comfort for all our journeys. The oversized windows of the single-level SilverLeaf service coaches puts you right in the heart of the awe-inspiring scenery of the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies, as you enjoy a delicious new gourmet menu and hear captivating stories and trivia told by your Rocky Mountaineer Hosts.
The bi-level coaches of GoldLeaf service offer enviable views of dazzling vistas through glass domed windows of the upper level, whilst an exclusive outdoor vestibule in the lower level allows you to experience the uncurbed sounds and sights. You will also be treated to award-winning five star cuisine that will compete with the scenery for your attention. From start to finish, the attentive Rocky Mountaineer hosts will attend to your every need and keep your glass full.
Our Rocky Mountaineer tours are grand adventures covering every spectacular highlight of the Canadian Rockies. Tours stop at natural attractions - like Maligne Canyon, Lake Louise, and the vast Columbia Icefield - along with gorgeous mountain towns like Banff, Jasper and the remote Kamloops. Beyond the mountains, the Rocky Mountaineer passes through the rolling hills of British Columbia, reaching as far as the port city of Vancouver on Canada's west coast. Vancouver represents an opportunity for visitors to explore a bustling metropolitan environment - or continue their adventure on cruises which head north, up Canada's Pacific coast, towards the beautiful frozen landscapes of Alaska.
Onboard the Rocky Mountaineer, each incredible sight may be experienced the comfort of your plush, luxury carriage. As the scenery rolls by, passengers are treated to a variety of delicious food and drink, freshly prepared by the train's chef and served by a friendly staff. To get the most from your epic surroundings, the Rocky Mountaineer travels during the day, with overnight stops at the charming mountain towns of Kamloops, Quesnel and Whistler.
Every day on the Rocky Mountaineer is different and, as you wind your way through secluded mountain passes, you will experience a variety of mountain terrain - from towering snow-capped peaks, plunging canyons and thick pine forests, to churning river rapids, hot springs and frozen tundra. The abundant wildlife of the Rocky Mountains bursts to life at every turn and, during their time in the untamed wilderness, passengers should expect to spot black bears, deer, eagles and even the occasional wolf.
Here at Titan we have created a range of exclusive tours in the Rocky Mountains, which let visitors make their own journeys of discovery onboard the Rocky Mountaineer. Our tours include coach and rail sections, focusing on the highlights of the vast national parks of Banff and Jasper in Alberta and the rural beauty of Canada's westernmost province, British Columbia.
One of our flagship tours, 'The World's Most Spectacular Rail Journey', focuses on the frontier spirit of the Rockies and includes excursions to the captivating Lake Louise in Banff National Park and the Columbia Icefield, where visitors head out in an all-terrain Ice Explorer for an opportunity to hike the ancient Athabasca Glacier. Joining the Rocky Mountaineer in the town of Jasper, the tour rolls west, past Mount Robson, Pyramid Falls and the glaciers of the Albreda Icefields. After stopping overnight in the town of Kamloops, the Rocky Mountaineer's journey continues towards the Pacific ocean, passing through the Cascade Mountains and the Hell's Gate rapids of Fraser Canyon, before reaching, the beautiful city of Vancouver. This amazing tour then continues onto the cosmopolitan city of Seattle, the gateway to the Pacific Northwest.
