Introduction / History

 

Step aboard the historic Royal Canadian Pacific train and journey into a bygone era, where luxury rail travel meets the untamed wilderness of the Canadian Rockies. The Royal Canadian Pacific takes you through some of the most rugged, inaccessible and spectacular terrain in the world along the historic Canadian Pacific Railway lines. 

 

A Royal Canadian Pacific experience is about leaving the world of everyday life behind and relaxing and revitalizing in an environment of rail travel, the way it was meant to be. The Royal Canadian Pacific luxury train brings to life the nostalgia associated with the romance of rail travel. Stepping on board is akin to stepping back in time to an era of elegance, grace and classic luxury; a place where the view outside your window is unspoiled and timeless - oblivious to the rush of today’s world. Experience the wonder of the Rockies by rail as you breathe in the beauty of sapphire rivers and lakes, the towering pines of the snow capped Rockies, and marvel at the abundant wildlife in Yoho and Banff National Parks.

 

Enjoy personalised service from friendly attendants and savour culinary delights prepared by talented chefs and served in an elegant dining car, amid one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world.

Accommodation

The Royal Canadian Pacific has just 30 guests on board. Enjoy the privacy of a luxurious wood-panelled cabin, complete with private en suite facilities. There are seven twins in the newly constructed Pullman cars "N.R.Crump” and "Strathcona.” These have two lower, twin beds set at an "L” shape, desk, roomy private shower, sink and toilet and large picture window. Finished in Circassian walnut from Russia with Bird’s Eye maple inlay and complemented by scalloped lamp fixtures, brass radiators and Turkish drapes, each car maintains the ambience of the classic era of luxury rail travel. Five cabins with double beds are in the older, historic cars. Five cabins are designed for single travelers and require no single supplement.


Each cabin has luggage storage, a safe for personal belongings and a friendly and attentive cabin service. To ensure a good night’s rest, the Royal Canadian Pacific stops each evening at a specially prepared rail siding.

Dining / Lounge

Meal times vary to fit in with tour visits. An a la carte breakfast is available in the dining cars; tea, coffee and other beverages can be served in all the lounge areas or cabins. Gourmet meals are served in the Craigellachie dining room.

 

There are several lounges on board the train. Relax in the ‘Churchill Cubby’, the once private office of Sir Winston Churchill, and watch the constellations slowly reveal themselves as the twilight of a golden sunset fades over the Rocky Mountains. Visit one of the lounge areas on each coach to relax and enjoy conversation with fellow travellers or just sit back and enjoy reading a book. You can also stretch out in the sunshine on the open platform of 1926 observation-lounge "Mount Stephen.” There are also the 1926 lounge-sleeper "Royal Wentworth,” the 1927 observation-lounge-sleeper "Van Horne,” and the 1916 open-platform observation lounge-diner "Killarney.”
