Few regions can match the true magnificence of the Canadian Rockies for beautiful scenery, crystal-clear lakes, soaring glaciers and an abundance of big game. The Banff and Jasper National Parks allow you to get close to the wonder of nature and a wilderness which is almost unimaginable.
You will see why The Rocky Mountaineer has been voted one of the five top railway journeys of the world. From the moment you are welcomed aboard with a cocktail, in your domed GoldLeaf service carriage, the friendly on-board crew will pamper you. You will sample exquisite cuisine freshly prepared by world-class chefs and listen to excellent commentaries as you travel through spectacular scenery from Jasper to Vancouver, sipping included fine wines, drinks and enjoying delicious treats.
Fringed by the Pacific Ocean with a mountainous backdrop, Vancouver is feted as the world’s most liveable city. A short ferry ride away on Vancouver Island, Victoria offers old world charm and is a great point from which to explore the flora, fauna and aquatic creatures that exist here in abundance amidst its rolling hills and watery inlets.
Throughout this holiday we use good standard hotels in central locations, close to most sights.
