If your idea of a great vacation involves going off the beaten path, picture yourself winding through the breathtaking landscape of the Canadian Rockies on the world’s largest privately owned luxury tourist train. Rocky Mountaineer’s glass-dome windows offer spectacular views of the region’s natural treasures as you roll toward Banff or Jasper, home to two UNESCO World Heritage site national parks; stunning Lake Louise; and historic Quesnel. Operating by daylight only along four unique rail routes, Rocky Mountaineer’s friendly Hosts attend to every detail and creature comfort. In between gourmet meals, press your camera against the glass to snap photos of foraging bears, plummeting waterfalls and towering snow-capped peaks. Sit back, relax and listen to stories about the area’s history and wildlife on this train trip in Canada. As part of the GoldLeaf Service, step onto a private outdoor vestibule to breathe in the fresh mountain air, and tuck into your hotel at night. After hours of watching the untamed wilderness pass by, enjoy the freedom of a flexible schedule. You have the option of staying longer to explore certain destinations and boarding the Rocky Mountaineer train again later to continue the lavish rail journey on another spectacular route.
