About

Recommended for:
Mountains | Natural world | Rail journey

This extension is a wonderful addition to any western Canada itinerary, where you'll observe spectacular scenery via a luxury train, much of it otherwise unreachable. Travel from Vancouver to Jasper, or vice versa, where the journey means just as much as the destination as you pass enormous sounds framed by snow-covered mountains. You'll discover the spectacular Sea to Sky country through Squamish, a town characterised by its complex history with the First Nations people of Canada, rock faces that plunge into the sea, and farmlands laced with winding rivers dotted with picturesque villages. Vast ranchlands, mountain ridges and desert-like expanse set the scene for exquisite Michelin-starred meals and complimentary drinks, alongside stays in cosy hotels. 

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Vancouver to Whistler

Today you’ll board the Rocky Mountaineer and enjoy breakfast cooked by Michelin-starred chefs in your glass-domed train car. A GoldLeaf train car, the superior option, offers spectacular viewing platforms, ideal for taking in cascading waterfalls, looming mountains topped with the shimmer of snow, and deep canyons. Highlights today include the magnificent and intensely picturesque Sea to Sky corridor, an area characterised by the spectacularly scenic Howe Sound and surrounding coastal mountains, dotted with small communities that dot the coast, including Squamish, a Canadian First Nations populated town. Other points of interest include the Brandywine Falls, carved into sharp mountain edges and surrounded by flourishing greenery; the extraordinary peak of volcano Mount Garibaldi; and the winding trails around Cheakamus Canyon.

Day 2

Today sees you speed along the charming farmlands of Quesnel, traversing through verdant landscapes and valleys to the arid Fraser Canyon, enjoying a traditional Canadian lunch with the likes of sourdough flapjacks and fresh salmon on offer. Highlights include deep river canyons, the verdant farmland of Pemberton Valley, and the rolling Cariboo Pleateau lands. Observe the pretty shores of Anderson Lake filled with visitors fishing and boating, the glacier-fed Seton Lake and Deep Creek Bridge, owner of the accolade of one of the world’s highest railway bridges.

Day 3
Quesnel to Jasper

Today you’ll head through the majestic Rockies to scenes emblematic of Canada in the Jasper National Park. Following the Fraser River you’ll speed through sprawling pine forests, spotting moose foraging in their natural habitat, before being greeted by the sharp traverses of the Rocky and Cariboo mountains. Passing the highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Robson, takes you to Yellowhead Pass, where an endless expanse of forests and mountains are only interrupted by shimmering lakes.
