Absorb nature’s energy from wildlife, snow-capped mountains, roaring waterfalls and more onboard Rocky Mountaineer
A popular option for adventure-seeking travelers is taking in the sights and culinary delights onboard Rocky Mountaineer, Canada’s luxury tourist train company that offers all daylight trips through British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, and Seattle, U.S.
Find some peace in nature
Nothing gets you in the mood to relax more than calming inspiration from breathtaking scenery. Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest has it all: surreal landscapes, riveting canyons, 200 million-year-old volcanic rock, ocean air, exotic rain forests, pounding waterfalls and up close views of the rugged Rocky Mountains.
Whether you’re an avid photographer or someone who loves to soak up the moment, these peace-instilling sights are sure to leave you with a refreshed spirit and an album of awe-inspiring photos. Just remember to skip checking your email and put your cellphone on do-not-disturb mode.
Take in new dining experiences
Vacations give travelers time to eat well while relaxing — whether that’s sharing a sweet treat or eating coho salmon, which is often prepared in Rocky Mountaineer’s gourmet kitchen. Warm scones first thing in the morning along with fresh breakfasts, three-course lunches and snacks give travelers a taste of Western Canada’s fresh and wild bounty that’s worth taking the time to savor.
Rediscover your sense of adventure
With a trip such as one on Rocky Mountaineer, wildlife and new adventures are within reach for travelers of all ages who take in uncharted territory, investigate history and yelp in surprise at the sight of a 1,000-pound moose from the safety of a train car.
Make lasting memories
Traveling by rail offers a fresh perspective about your surroundings. Travelers get to see a different side of nature that they wouldn’t necessarily see while driving. On Rocky Mountaineer, the train rolls next to deep canyons and lush forests. For more information about travel options and tours in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, visit
