Rocky Mountaineer

Rocky Mountaineer is so much more than a train. It is the key to opening up a world of exploration and adventure in the sprawling brilliance of one of Mother Nature’s greatest creations – the Canadian Rockies.

Aboard Rocky Mountaineer’s all-dome fleet you can carve through the spectacular mountainous region and indulge in ultimate luxury, while taking in some of the world’s most remarkable scenery.

Dazzling destinations

Rocky Mountaineer offers four unique rail routes, and over 64 vacation packages, travelling through the Canadian Rockies, and the Pacific Northwest. Destinations include Banff, Whistler, Jasper and Vancouver. Rocky Mountaineer also offers the Coastal Passage route - to or from Seattle, enabling guests to experience the delights of Pacific USA.

Seaton Lake

From cosmopolitan city centres to the heart of the Canadian Rockies, these rail routes provide the opportunity to soak up some of the most jaw-dropping sights that western North America has to offer.

All aboard

Even as you walk into the station you’re greeted by a sea of smiling faces as your fellow adventurers and future friends await. Onboard you can expect an experience which features rich, historic storytelling from engaging Hosts, world-class cuisine, and a firsthand look at lush green forests, glacier-capped mountains, tumbling waterfalls and turquoise glacier-fed lakes, all from the comfort of reclining plush seats. These unforgettable all-daylight journeys offer romance and history, reminding you that travelling is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.

The journey

There’s nothing like feeling astonished, and on a Rocky Mountaineer journey you’ll experience it over and over again. From awe-inspiring vistas to local gourmet cuisine, Rocky Mountaineer has it all.
