An unforgettable rail journey through Canada's Great White North

Witness rare wildlife, cascading waterfalls, and dramatic peaks as you enjoy fine dining on a scenic rail journey through Canada’s Rocky Mountains.

Passing through Pyramid Falls, Yellowhead Pass, and shimmering Vancouver, it’s clear that Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer is no ordinary train journey. But is any train journey truly ordinary? Whether you are heading down to London with East Anglia, or you are sleepily riding the train from the airport, trains carry a kind of poetic beauty that goes beyond the environments rushing past the windows. “Trains are wonderful... To travel by train is to see nature and human beings, towns and churches and rivers, in fact, to see life,” said Agatha Christie, a woman famed for her murder mysteries, but lesser known for her love of rail journeys.

Many of history’s great writers have been profoundly moved by rail travel, whether for its novel transportation possibilities, the ability to snake between landscapes inaccessible by other means, or because of the characters on board. 

If you share this deep love of rail journeys, or perhaps you fancy slow travel - with landscapes unfurling right before your eyes as you relax in your seat - you might have the Rocky Mountaineer - as part of a wider Canada escorted tour - at the top of your wish list.

The Rockies span 3,000 miles from northern British Columbia to central New Mexico, so a rail journey with Rocky Mountaineer offers a new world of opportunities, from seeing Canada’s most picturesque lakes to catching rare wildlife roaming between the trees and along the streams. This luxurious train trip puts the Great White North’s most spectacular scenes on show. Travellers over 50 particularly love the journey, with the comfort, range of amenities and fine dining being cited as highlights. 

There is an unbridled and captivating beauty to the colourful and ever-changing ecosystems of the Canadian Rockies. So sit back on the Rocky Mountaineer, and take it all in. Soak up the coastal ranges, shifting glaciers, and glittering waterfront cities.

We answer the most frequently asked questions about holidaying in The Rockies.

  • The weather in the Rockies can be cool during all seasons, so fill your suitcase with warm base layers (thermals are a great idea), jumper, waterproof jacket, full-length trousers, scarf, gloves, woollen socks, sturdy and waterproof footwear, and a hat. Remember, layering is key!

    If you are travelling in summer, you might like to bring shorts, sandals, and your swimsuit - just in case.

  • For some travellers, the Canadian winter might be bordering on the extreme, with temperatures hovering around -8°C to -14°C. Spring in Canada can still be fairly chilly, but summer offers long, sunny days to spend in the outdoors. As such, this can be a busy time of year to visit.

    Between September to November, the scenery is transformed with fall colours, so we recommend booking a Rockies holiday for autumn. Check out our guide to Canada’s mountains for more details.
