Vancouver » Kamloops » Lake Lousie or Banff

Here, you can turn back the dial and retrace the steps of gritty explorers as you travel not by horseback, but in pure luxury. Witness rich Aboriginal heritage and remnants of a pioneering past on the only passenger train that retraces Canada’s most historic route, through our storied west and into the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Check your smartphone calendar often. Even though you’ll be moving forward, you’ll swear time has gone back—a few hundred years.

Vancouver to Kamloops

After boarding at the Rocky Mountaineer Vancouver Station, travel through the fertile fields of the Fraser Valley. Farmland gives way to the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains before the rumble of raging waters hail the arrival of Hell’s Gate. Piney forests turn into the abstract beauty of dusty desert hills as you pull in to spend the night in Kamloops. Overnight in hotel accommodation.

Kamloops to Lake Lousie or Banff

Your journey continues east along the South Thompson River past Craigellachie, the site of the Last Spike, which completed the historic Canadian Pacific Railway. Continue onwards to Rogers Pass with its glaciers and rail tunnels. Brace yourself for a dramatic climb through the engineering marvel of the Spiral Tunnels. End your journey in the village of Lake Louise or the resort town of Banff.
