EXPERIENCE THE CANADIAN ROCKIES BY RAIL
THE JOURNEY IS ABOVE. THE DESTINATIONS ARE BEYOND. THE CUISINE IS BOTH.
The Canadian Rockies are known to many as a must-do vacation thanks to the awe-inspiring vistas that showcase nature’s most beautiful aspects of sparkling lakes, snowy mountains, and local wildlife at every turn. With Canada celebrating its 150th anniversary and being named Lonely Planet’s top destination this year, 2017 is the perfect time to experience the vast, untouched beauty and humble culture that our northern neighbors are known for.
Rocky Mountaineer, the luxury tourist train operating in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, is the best way to see all this part of the world has to offer. The train takes you on a journey alongside rivers, through quaint mountain towns, and within arms-reach of stunning, snowcapped mountains. Along the way you may even enjoy glimpses of wildlife, such as moose, soaring eagles, or a bear.
The experience onboard the all-dome fleet features rich, historic storytelling, world-class cuisine, and a first-hand look at lush green forests and turquoise glacier-fed lakes, all from the comfort of reclining plush seats. With four unique routes to choose from, the unforgettable all-daylight journeys offer romance and history, reminding you that traveling is as much about the journey as it is about the destination.
In addition to the various routes and multiple destinations, Rocky Mountaineer offers two levels of service, both with the compelling Hosts, delectable food, and all the comforts Rocky Mountaineer is known for. Stepping onto the bi-level, glass-domed train cars of GoldLeaf Service is a luxurious experience unto itself. With sprawling windows on the upper level, you can feast your eyes on sights at every turn. Downstairs, an elegant dining room awaits, where you have the opportunity to sit with other travelers and enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast and three-course lunch as you discuss the dramatic scenery passing outside the windows.
SilverLeaf Service offers optimal viewing from oversized picture windows, so you don’t miss a moment of the stunning waterfalls or eagles soaring overhead. Our SilverLeaf Service offers a mouth-watering gourmet menu, which continues to draw inspiration from the bounty of Western Canada—incorporating fresh local ingredients like Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef, to name a couple of teasers. Serving options are plated to your preference, meaning, if you’re feeling ravenous after all that sightseeing, we aim to accommodate.
A journey onboard Rocky Mountaineer is a feast for the senses with gourmet cuisine accompanied by stunning scenery and award-winning service. Before each season, Rocky Mountaineer’s Executive Chefs, who have been trained in Michelin-starred restaurants, reimagine a menu inspired by the bounty of the passing regions, highlighting ingredients such as Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef. From hearty soups made from local vegetables, to Okanagan apple crumble, you will have a decadent culinary experience of Western Canadian ingredients. The culinary trip onboard is highlighted by prize-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, local Canadian beers, and high-end spirits.
