Scal­ing the Rock­ies

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

ARE you look­ing to reach new heights of ad­ven­ture on your next hol­i­day?

If so, The Rocky Moun­taineer – the lux­u­ri­ous rail jour­ney through the Cana­dian Rock­ies – is the an­swer for you.

Hav­ing won eight in­ter­na­tional travel ac­co­lades, in­clud­ing pres­ti­gious awards from Na­tional Ge­o­graphic and Lonely Planet, this jour­ney is spec­tac­u­lar.

Well- sea­soned trav­eller Nithi Ne­sadu­rai, who had his fair share of amaz­ing trav­els, is happy to share his un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence with the Rocky Moun­taineer on the eight- day Western Ex­plorer pro­gramme.

> Amaz­ing scenery: Com­menc­ing in Van­cou­ver be­fore snaking its way through Bri­tish Columbia and Al­berta, this lux­ury rail ser­vice of­fers un­par­al­leled panoramic views from bi- level fully glass domed car­riages.

“The sights are be­yond amaz­ing; tow­er­ing wa­ter­falls, flow­ing rivers, sprawl­ing pine trees and more are what greet your eyes as the Rocky me­an­ders through the wild lush ter­rain of Western Canada. Even bet­ter is the wildlife that makes guest ap­pear­ances along your jour­ney, from play­ful grizzly bears, frol­ick­ing moose and cu­ri­ous deer,” said Nithi.

> Amaz­ing ser­vice: To match the amaz­ing views out­side the car­riage, what hap­pens in­side the Rocky Moun­taineer is not short of amaz­ing ei­ther. The per­son­alised ser­vice, de­tailed sto­ry­telling and Cana­dian trivia given by pro­fes­sional hosts as the jour­ney un­folds, and gourmet meals pre­pared by award- win­ning chefs sourced from the fresh­est lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, are just some of the high­lights aboard the Rocky Moun­taineer.

Nithi said, “I was most im­pressed with the lo­gis­tics, es­pe­cially the han­dling of the lug­gage from day one; every­thing was flaw­less.”

> Amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences: “The amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence does not end on the train. As it is a day­light train, we stayed at pre­miere ho­tels dur­ing the night and got our adren­a­line go­ing with guided sight­see­ing such as a 12- minute he­li­copter ride over the Cana­dian Rock­ies and a visit to the Columbia Ice­fields to see the mag­nif­i­cent Athabasca Glacier,” added Nithi.

The Rocky Moun­taineer is amaz­ing be­cause it en­com­passes many facets for a jour­ney of a life­time.

High- end lux­ury, ex­cit­ing es­capades, un­tamed scenery and wildlife all come to­gether to guar­an­tee a jour­ney that will leave you in awe.
