Canadian Rockies Getaway Circle
Keep a lookout for a jaw-dropping range of wildlife on a Circle Journey that includes two rail routes, a visit to Yoho National Park and a gondola ride with beautiful views of Banff and six mountain ranges.
Begin your journey in Vancouver, touring the scenic city on your own. Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre offers spectacular 360-degree views of metro Vancouver and the majestic North Shore Mountains and is a great place to start exploring. Admission is included.
Board Rocky Mountaineer in the morning and travel through the fertile farmland of the Fraser Valley and the rolling hills of the Coast Mountains. As your train gains altitude beyond the town of Hope, the Fraser River narrows and the waters run rampant. The train will slow to fully appreciate Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon where the volume of water rushing through is about three times greater than Niagara Falls.
Spend the night in a charming Kamloops hotel and board the train again in the morning. Follow the North Thompson River, slowing to take in Pyramid Falls. Moving past teal-green lakes, you’ll close in on Mount Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies. Overnight in the alluring alpine town of Jasper.
The next day, you’ll travel along the Icefields Parkway to Lake Louise by motorcoach. A stop will be made at Athabasca Falls before arriving at the Columbia Icefield, where you’ll ride on an Ice Explorer. Overnight in Lake Louise and enjoy the morning at leisure. After lunch, a motorcoach tour takes you into Yoho National Park where you’ll see Spiral Tunnels, Emerald Lake and a natural rock bridge. The tour ends in Banff, your home for two nights. Enjoy a half-day tour of Bow Falls, Lake Minnewanka, Surprise Corner, the Hoodoos and the Banff Gondola.
Board Rocky Mountaineer in Banff for the return journey to Kamloops. Gaze in wonder at cascading waterfalls and icy glaciers spilling over the lips of the peaks above. Along the South Thompson River, you’ll witness historic Craigellachie—the spot marks where the last spike was driven home on the Canadian Pacific Railway line, uniting the nation. After an overnight in Kamloops, enjoy one last day on board as your Circle Journey comes to an end in Vancouver.
