Rocky Mountaineer Railtours - majestic peaks, glaciers and rivers
Rocky Mountaineer Railroad Company was formed to duplicate the service
no longer operated by Via Rail. They took the opportunity to add some
innovations and improvements to the existing rail journey. The service
was re-timed and an overnight stay in Kamloops was built into the
schedule. For the early part of its journey the railroad hugs the
Fraser River as it climbs from Vancouver to Kamloops.
On the second day you enter the true Canadian Rocky Mountain grandeur
and experience the majesty of the peaks, glaciers and rivers. Because
the train is no stranger to wildlife, wildlife viewing from the train
including bear, moose, wolves, coyotes, all of which often congregate
close to the railroad, is one of the features of this journey.
The price includes comfortable accommodation on the train, transfers
backwards and forwards from your hotel in Kamloops, hotel accommodation
in Kamloops and breakfast and lunch served on the train each day.
Rocky Mountaineer also offer a regular service between Whistler and
Vancouver called the Sea to Sky Climb. This connects with the service
between Whistler and Jasper, which offers an alternate route to the
Rockies. This is a valuable addition to the Rocky Mountaineer family
and the Rainforest to Gold Rush Service in particular opens up some
of the most outstanding scenery in the Canadian Rockies.
