The spectacular highlights of the Canadian Rockies are yours to discover when you travel aboard the Rocky Mountaineer® and experience "The Most Spectacular Train Trip in the World"™. Each Rocky Mountaineer rail vacation features spectacular scenery and unmatched onboard service, with an overnight stay in comfortable or luxurious accommodations enroute so that you do not miss the spectacular scenery while travelling during the day. Rocky Mountaineer offers over 45 unique train vacation packages on four distinctive rail routes - three rail journeys into the Canadian Rockies and one spectacular 3 1/2 hour train excursion, formerly known as Whistler Mountaineer, from Vancouver to Whistler. 

The entire train journey takes place during daylight to ensure that you enjoy every minute of the breathtaking scenery of glacier-fed lakes, majestic mountains ranges and ferocious rivers. The Rocky Mountaineer train travels both eastbound and westbound between the beautiful coastal city of Vancouver and the resort town of Whistler, both in British Columbia, and Jasper or Banff and Calgary, in Alberta.
