First Passage to the West
Over 125 years ago, this route united Canada and helped define a nation. Travelling between the coast and Banff or Lake Louise you’ll witness mountains and wilderness, much of it seemingly unchanged since the days of the first explorers.
Our cross-border route connects the cosmopolitan cities of Seattle, WA, USA and Vancouver, BC, Canada with the breathtaking Canadian Rockies. Connect the Seattle-Vancouver route to the First Passage to the West, Journey through the Clouds, or the Rainforest to Gold Rush routes.
Journey through the Clouds
You will follow the route of the Fraser River, home of British Columbia’s largest salmon run, pass by the Albreda Glacier and magnificent Pyramid Falls. The highlight of this route is majestic Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
Rainforest to Gold Rush
Enjoy some of the most breathtaking and varied rail scenery found anywhere in the world on this route. Visit the Gold Pan City of Quesnel, journey through the Rocky Mountain Trench, be awestruck by spectacular Mount Robson, and arrive in the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies.
Rocky Mountaineer’s team of award-winning chefs relish in creating sophisticated and diverse menus with the finest, locally sourced ingredients from the Pacific Northwest. Don't worry, everything isn’t smothered in Maple Syrup - unless of course you want that.
The meals you will enjoy onboard are inspired by Western Canada’s diverse culinary landscape, our rich tapestry of cultures, and the bountiful regions we travel through. Bon appetit!
In the spring, you can witness the wilderness coming to life. Flowers bloom and new growth is evident everywhere. Wild creatures great and small come out to play. Lakes, streams, and waterfalls swell. Bears lumber out of hibernation. Birds begin nesting. And best of all, the crowds of summer tourists have yet to arrive.
In Summer, the warm weather urges vegetation to flourish. Newborn animals emerge under their parents’ watchful eyes and the rain forest is at its most lush.
