Rocky Mountaineer toasts guests marking a special occasion

17 July 2019

Maybe you have a big birthday coming up, or perhaps it’s a wedding anniversary, or even a family reunion; or simply looking to pamper yourself with a high-end vacation, as well as an opportunity to experience something on your bucket list, traveling with the people you love.

Over the past few years, Rocky Mountaineer skyrocketed in popularity - no surprise given that their journeys have become synonymous with the spectacular scenery of the Canadian Rockies, and the romance of luxury train travel.

With three iconic routes passing through seven mountain ranges, two indulgent levels of service, show-stopping destinations such as Lake Louise and Banff, and over 65 packages that combine the rail journey with adventure and exploration throughout Western Canada, Rocky Mountaineer can be the perfect celebratory vacation, no matter what the occasion.

“I have been lucky enough to experience the Rocky Mountaineer Train, such an unforgettable experience, having the GoldLeaf service, which gives you the glass domed carriage, and being able to view the majestic mountains and colours of the mountains while travelling at speed was something else”

Rachael, Travel Counsellor

Romance on the Rails

What could be more romantic than catching your first glimpse of the soaring Canadian Rockies with the love of your life right by your side? A big wedding anniversary is often the perfect excuse for couples to celebrate their relationship with a trip they’ve always dreamt of. Relaxing side by side in one of Rocky Mountaineer’s all-dome train cars, rolling past glacier-fed lakes, through dramatic canyons, and alongside snow-capped mountain ranges, these journeys offer time to reconnect, reminisce, and make new memories. Of course, dining on Alberta beef and wild salmon, while toasting the future with B.C. wine doesn’t hurt either! And strolling hand-in-hand through the charming mountain town of Banff or stealing kisses on the shores of Lake Louise should bring a teenaged blush to the cheek of any romantic.

Keeping Track of the Years

A milestone birthday with Rocky Mountaineer means more than just celebrating the number on the cake! It can mean exploring a region that you have always dreamed of visiting, taking on a new challenge like voyageur-style canoeing on Lake Louise or heli-hiking in the Cariboo Mountains, or indulging your inner history-buff as you learn more about the region and landscapes that the train travels through thanks to the train’s charming onboard Hosts. Many guests find that one of their favourite parts of their Rocky Mountaineer experience is the new friends they make, connecting with like-minded travellers from around the globe as the scenery unfolds before them. 

Family Reunited

When it comes to bringing together family members from all corners of the world, a Rocky Mountaineer train journey easily caters to a diverse group. Whether simply reuniting a dozen relatives, or looking to book out an entire train car, Rocky Mountaineer offers a luxurious vacation that all ages will look forward to! Grandma and Grandpa will love experiencing Western Canada’s most dramatic landscapes from the comfort of their reclining leather seats in the all-dome car, while the cousins fill their camera’s memory card snapping wildlife selfies on the open-air platform. And everyone will enjoy connecting over delicious food and wine inspired by the very region that the train is passing through.
