Taking The Rocky Mountaineer From Vancouver To Banff
There are several journeys you can choose from, but probably the most popular route would be the “First Passage to the West”. Its highly recommended to start your adventure in Vancouver and head off on the tracks, which wind their way through dramatic canyons and mountain passes to your final destination of Banff in the heart of the Rockies.
What to do in Lake Louise Canada?
Another option is to disembark at Lake Louise, Canada where you can then gaze upon the beautiful turquoise waters, created by the melt-water running down from the glaciers high up in the mountains, overlooking the lake.
Other Canadian Train Tours & Rail Journeys
The “Journey Through the Clouds” is another fantastic option, again starting in Vancouver is recommended. From there the train makes its way along the banks of the scenic Fraser River to Kamloops. There you’ll disembark to spend the night in the charming little town of Kamloops. The next day’s journey is a spectacular one making its way up into the mountains, passing beautiful sights along the way such as the Pyramid Falls and Mount Robson.
Your final destination is the quaint mountain town of Jasper, where you’ll arrive in time for some locally inspired cuisine in one of the many pubs or restaurants, the perfect way to finish your trip.
