Travelling only during daylight hours to remote areas not otherwise accessible, the Rocky Mountaineer winds its way past rugged mountain peaks, turquoise glacier fed lakes, powerful waterfalls and evergreen forests in one of the most spectacular train journeys on the planet.

Eating In
The onboard dining experience is just part of the fun of luxury train travel and the menu is made up of regionally inspired Rocky Mountain cuisine. There are three levels of service that guests can choose from. GoldLeaf is the pinnacle service with white linen, fine china and wine pairings served in a special glass-domed dining car. SilverLeaf Service includes hot meals served in the spacious SilverLeaf seating area.

The Rockies by Rail
There is something remarkably civilized about train travel and a journey through the Rockies unveils incredible scenery and wildlife viewing. Depending on the itinerary, guests can get to know Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper as well as Whistler and the BC Rockies. They can hike along high alpine trails, soak in Banff’s famous hot springs, or ride a gondola or a helicopter to the mountaintops for a bird’s eye view of six mountain ranges.
