    Considered by many to be the trip of a lifetime, a rail journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer promises to be a magical experience. With the spectacular scenery of British Columbia and Alberta as a backdrop every corner turned brings into view another picture-perfect landscape. Following the historic train route constructed over 100 years ago, the Rocky Mountaineer offers a choice of four superb journeys, each showcasing the diverse beauty of Canada's West.

    1. First Passage to the West

    Named for the pass over which it crosses, the train commences its journey in Vancouver and traverses the Rocky Mountains, with an overnight stop in Kamloops before reaching its final destination of Lake Louise or Banff. This route also operates in the opposite direction. Passengers enjoying this two day route will see Cisco Crossings, Avalanche Alley, Jaws of Death Gorge, Stoney Creek Bridge, Kicking Horse River and Castle Mountain.
    Operates: April to October.

    2. Journey Through the Clouds

    Begins in Vancouver and follows the same legendary journey to Kamloops where an overnight stop is taken, then takes the higher route through the scenic valleys and Rocky Mountains to a final destination of Jasper. This route also operates in the opposite direction. Known for the abundance of wildlife and majestic Mount Robson, this two day route also includes Thompson and Fraser Canyons, Pyramid Falls and Jasper National Park.
    Operates: April to October.

    3. Rainforest to Gold Rush

    The Rainforest to Gold Rush route is a three day journey, commencing in Vancouver. Day one follows the Sea to Sky Corridor to Whistler, where an overnight stay is enjoyed. Day two follows the mighty Fraser River to Quesnel where a second overnight stay is taken. On day three the train climbs through the Rocky Mountain Trench and Cariboo Mountains to its ultimate destination of Jasper. This route also operates in the opposite direction. The historic Caribou Gold Rush region and the lush forests of northern British Columbia are highlights of this route.
    Operates: May to October.

    4. Coastal Passage

    Coastal Passage commences its journey in Seattle, in Washington State, USA, and has a destination of Vancouver. From here, it connects to First Passage to The West, Journey through the Clouds and Rainforest to Gold Rush. This route also operates in the opposite direction. The six hour journey hugs the Pacific Coast and has numerous scenic highlights including Fraser River, White Rock, Bellingham Bay and the Cascade Mountains.
    Operates: May to September.
