All aboard the Rocky Mountaineer for a summer trip! This is a vacation that you have to take. Onboard the ‘Rocky’, as it is affectionately known, you will be able to see parts of western Canada that you cannot access by foot, car, or bus.
This train ride will take you through rivers, waterfalls, and canyons and make you feel part of the scenery. The speed of the train ranges from 90kmph to 50kmph, giving you plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery and wildlife that surround you on this trip. Although the wildlife sightings are not guaranteed (they are wild animals after all) you can expect to see bear, deer, moose, elk and bald eagles on you trip. Sitting in the bi-level, glass domed coach in the Goldleaf class, you can expect to experience first class service with hot meals and complimentary beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, throughout your trip.
As far as Canadian trains go, The Rocky Mountaineer is a fabulous way to experience Canada. We suggest that you go in the summer months as the weather in the mountains will be warmer and allow for more freedom. However, the views in the spring are beautiful too, with snow on the mountain tops and flowers sprouting in the ground. Canadian trains really are a fantastic way to holiday.
