There are dozens of ways to see the Rocky Mountains—by foot, by bike—but there is absolutely nothing like experiencing the range’s epic beauty on a luxury Rocky Mountaineer train journey. The trip on the Vancouver–Jasper line is filled with dramatic landscapes, scenic passes, vast plains and picturesque canyons.
Whether Vancouver’s Pacific Central Station is your departing point or your destination, you’ll enjoy incredible views of British Columbia almost as soon as the train departs. Highlights include Hell's Gate in Fraser Canyon, where powerful waters crash down steep slopes, as well as Thompson River.
Passengers will also pass through Alberta, where they’ll see Mount Robson, the Canadian Rockies’ highest peak, as well as Pyramid Falls and the Yellowhead Pass that leads to Jasper National Park. The Rocky Mountaineer’s picture windows and partial glass ceilings make for perfect nature viewing on this trip that is sure to be a memorable adventure.
