Travel onboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to Lake Louise in the heart of British Columbia’s interior. You will discover dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields of the Fraser Valley, through forests and winding river canyons surrounded by the peaks of the Coast and Cascade Mountains, to the desert-like environment, while being treated to unforgettable service in your Gold Leaf cabin.
Vancover is a hotbed for outdoor enthusiasts, foodies, wine and beer aficionados, and walk-abouters. No matter what you choose to do, the Coast Mountains and Pacific Ocean surround you. Step aboard the famous Rocky Mountaineer.. your journey starts here.
Your first stop is Kamloops, where the North and South Thompson rivers meet. Kamloops basks in over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, making it a prime location for hiking, mountain biking, strolling, or slathering on sunscreen and soaking up some rays.
Next up is the jewel of the rockies, Lake Louise. Offering picturesque views so perfect, you might just ask to be pinched. The sparkling blue-green alpine lake is nestled at the foot of the Victoria Glacier, creating an epic backdrop no matter the time of day. So whether you fancy a surreal summer paddle or a light hike in the Canadian wilderness, Lake Louise will put a sparkle in your step. Your journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer comes to an end in Lake Louise, but your adventure is far from over!
