Mountains | Natural world | Rail journey
This two-day extension is a wonderful choice if you're looking for relaxing exploration through the intensely scenic landscapes of western Canada, and can be easily added on before or after a road trip. You'll stay in Kamloops, where endless trails give way to dense forests and snow-capped mountains, and Jasper, deep in the Rockies, which perhaps epitomises Canadian beauty. During the day, you’ll traverse over rushing canyons, see waterfalls only reachable via train and marvel at grandiose mountains such as the Rockies' highest peak, Mount Robson, edged by endless fjords and lakes. This route is equally spectacular whether you begin in Vancouver or Jasper, and it's all done on board a luxury train, where you'll enjoy Michelin-starred meals, complimentary drinks and glass-domed coaches.
Day by day itinerary
Vancouver to Kamloops
Today you'll discover endlessly changing scenes as you traverse along canyons, ridges and forests. Highlights include the sprawling Fraser Valley, where inlets and sprawling farmlands play host to a laidback way of life among serene fjords, and the imposing Cascade mountains that dwarf the forested lands below, laced with snaking river canyons. Enjoy complimentary drinks as you traverse through the semi-arid landscape and wine regions of the BC interior, another spectacular sight before the sheer slants of the Thompson River give way to the cascading Hell’s Gate, a narrowing of the Fraser River.
