Rocky Moun­taineer® from Rain­for­est to Gold Rush

Escape! Malaysia - - Getaway -

Rocky Moun­taineer® has been the pioneer of lux­ury rail travel since 1990. With over 1.7 mil­lion guests un­der its belt, trav­ellers can be as­sured of an un­par­al­leled ex­pe­ri­ence on­board the all-dome fleet of­fer­ing rich and his­toric sto­ry­telling, world-class cui­sine and first-hand look at the vast and un­touched wild beauty of the Pa­cific North­west, while etch­ing mem­o­ries and mak­ing life­time friend­ships. There are over 65 va­ca­tion pack­ages and four unique rail routes to choose from in­clud­ing First Pas­sage to the West, Jour­ney through the Clouds, Rain­for­est to Gold Rush and Coastal Pas­sage. The most pop­u­lar route has got to be the First Pas­sage to the West, mak­ing its mark as the only pas­sen­ger rail ser­vice on the his­toric Cana­dian Pa­cific track, fa­mous for unit­ing the coun­try and con­nect­ing Bri­tish Columbia to Canada over 125 years ago. How­ever, we have our eyes set on the Rain­for­est to Gold Rush three-day jour­ney that carves through ex­treme land­scapes. Melt back into your seat and sim­ply grab the rails and take in some of the fresh­est air from the pas­toral rach­lands. The route be­gins in Van­cou­ver to Jasper via Whistler and Ques­nel, fin­ish­ing off in the largest na­tional park in the Cana­dian Rock­ies. Top wildlife sight­ings in­clude bears, big horn sheep, elk, bald ea­gles and (maybe even) Sasquatch. Food­ies will be in for a treat as the cuisines are all pre­pared by Miche­lin-trained chefs us­ing lo­cally-sourced fresh pro­duce, in­spired by the bounty of Western Canada and the Pa­cific North­west. Meals are served in an el­e­gant din­ing room in Gold Leaf Ser­vice while the oth­ers seat-side in Sil­ver­leaf Ser­vice. From over­sized domed win­dows to fully domed win­dows with panoramic views up­stairs, all pas­sen­gers are treated to an exquisite na­ture show­case like no other while din­ing. Do take note that Rocky Moun­taineer’s sea­son runs from end-april to mid-oc­to­ber an­nu­ally and book­ings should be made in advance to avoid dis­ap­point­ments; the pass­ing scenery is just too ir­re­sistible to miss!
