Overview

“The Most Spectacular Train Trip in the World”

The Rocky Mountaineer train, designed especially with you in mind, travels through the day and stops for the night and ensuring you don’t miss any of the phenomenal scenery and yet have a comfortable bed for the night.

This short Rockies holiday not only includes the memorable two-day journey onboard the Rocky Mountaineer but also has four nights hotel accommodation, an amazing heli-sightseeing tour and a trip on the Banff Gondola. Enjoy the best of the Rockies in a short space of time.

The tour operates between Calgary and Vancouver and can be taken in either direction. Frontier Canada can also amend the tour for you if you wish. You can choose the level of comfort you would like on both the train and the hotels.

Please note the Rocky Mountaineer runs from late April till early October.

We can tailor this holiday, adding in extra nights at most locations, adding in an Alaskan Cruise from Vancouver afterwards, changing the non rail portion to a self drive if preferred for example. Please let us know what you would like and we will put together your ideal rail holiday in Canada.

"Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!"

Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!!! Two years ago we used this company for a holiday to BC and it was fantastic. This year we went to Alaska and the Yukon and Heidi organised the most wonderful trip, that went as smoothly as is possible. From the Arctic Circle to Kodiak Island everything was PERFECT (so rare in this day and age!!!) As for wildlife...wow! She arranged for us to travel by several different means of transport and to stay in a wide range of accommodation all of which gave us an idea of life in this vast area of North America. We are left with wonderful memories and thousands of beautiful photos.
