One of the world’s great train rides is through the awe inspiring Canadian Rockies. Rocky Mountaineer offers a number of journeys both along the coast in British Columbia as well as both east and west rides through the mountains. Starting points are either Vancouver or Calgary.
The train follows historical railways both in British Columbia and in Alberta.
You do not sleep on the train, rather at the end of each day waiting coaches will ferry you off on a short ride to your hotel. You don’t even have to check in – the staff has already done that for you, and your luggage will also be in your waiting room. The operations behind the scenes are a well oiled machine which makes the logistical part of the experience for guests, painless.
The staff are a big part of what makes this journey a pleasure. They welcome when you board in the morning, provide commentary throughout the day based on passing scenery and attractions and help setup for both breakfast and lunch. Several classes of service are offered ranging from the premiere Gold Leaf Service to the more affordable Silverleaf service.
