Epic moun­tain jour­ney rein­vents it­self

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - NEWS -

THE renowned Rocky Moun­taineer train ser­vice will de­but a new route through Canada’s west in Au­gust, start­ing from a US city for the first time.

The rail jour­ney re­ceived its sev­enth World Travel Award for the ‘‘ World’s Lead­ing Travel Ex­pe­ri­ence by Train’’ in 2012 and is now set to de­part from the west­ern US port of Seat­tle this year.

It will be the Rocky Moun­taineer’s fifth rail route through Canada’s west and the spe­cial rail ex­pe­ri­ence seam­lessly con­nects the cos­mopoli­tan cities of Seat­tle and Van­cou­ver to the Cana­dian Rock­ies. Guests on the train will ex­pe­ri­ence stun­ning vis­tas of mon­u­men­tal moun­tains and the pris­tine shore­lines of the Pa­cific North­west coast­line on their way to Bri­tish Columbia and the Cana­dian Rock­ies.

The train trav­els past a lengthy list of ex­tra­or­di­nary land­scapes, rag­ing rivers, semi-arid deserts and tow­er­ing moun­tain peaks. Pas­sen­gers en­joy this in the com­fort of Rocky Moun­taineer’s GoldLeaf ser­vice re­garded as be­ing ‘‘ un­matched’’ for lux­ury, com­fort and world-class re­gional cui­sine.

The Coastal Pas­sage route of­fers four de­par­tures in Au­gust with the launch of this new route tak­ing place on Au­gust 21 from Banff, fol­lowed by a de­par­ture from Jasper on Au­gust 22.

The Seat­tle de­par­tures are on Au­gust 24 and 25. De­tails: Visit www.rock­y­moun­taineer.com
