Rocky Mountaineer | Rainforest to Gold Rush Grand Adventure

Holiday Duration: 11 Nights

"I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier"

Firstly thank you so much Jeanette for your hard work. The whole holiday was perfect the hotels, timing, planning, organised trips all happened like clockwork. Not once did we have an issue, problem or disappointment.

In fact the holiday was one wow experience after another. Your choice of hotels was exceptional. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The car, a wrangler jeep was hilarious and essential and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The itinerary worked perfectly with a great balance between trips that you organised and free time for our own plans. I have to admit I was initially anxious about some of the longer journeys on Vancouver Island but they were ok and when we arrived at the various destinations it was well worth the effort.
I found you on the net. Your early engagement with what I wanted was what encouraged me and as our relationship deepened I became increasingly confident that I had stumbled on a gem of a business. Having now experienced the holiday of a lifetime I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier Travel

“The Most Spectacular Train Trip in the World”

“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 spectacular Rocky Mountaineer itinerary takes you through the Northern Rockies’ extreme and diverse landscapes into pristine and rarely seen wilderness from Vancouver to Whistler and on to Jasper with overnight stops in Whistler and Quesnel. This runs in both directions every few days from mid May until mid September.

As an alternative you can choose Journey Through the Clouds which travels between Vancouver and Jasper, or the First Passage to the West which travels between Vancouver and Banff or Calgary.

There are a number of different itineraries with the Rocky Mountaineer and all can be added to a tailor-made holiday to suit you. If you would like to add extra days at the start or end, or add in an Alaskan Cruise or  time on Vancouver Island, please talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.
