Depending on how much time you have and what you want to achieve, the trip options are as unique as each and every individual that climbs onboard the world-renowned train. To spark some inspiration, here are three ways to journey with Rocky Mountaineer…
Roll through the Rockies
Step onboard Rocky Mountaineer’s all-dome fleet to experience a journey filled with rich storytelling and worldclass cuisine amid a backdrop of lush green forests and turquoise glacier-fed lakes. While nature’s wonders unfold out the windows, unwind with a glass of sauvignon blanc in the comfort of the glassdomed coach, or step out on the outdoor viewing platform to take in the fresh mountain air. An exceptional culinary offering puts Rocky Mountaineer in a class of its own. Each season, Rocky Mountaineer’s talented Executive Chefs develop menus inspired by the bounty of the passing regions, highlighting premium, regional ingredients such as Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef. From tucking into hearty Canadian breakfasts, to enjoying sumptuous three-course lunches, and tasting prize-winning wines from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, dining onboard Rocky Mountaineer is a feast for the senses and a true highlight of the trip.
Tossing up between a rail journey and a cruise? Enjoy the best of both worlds by combining Rocky Mountaineer’s GoldLeaf Service with an Alaska cruise. Opt for a rail and cruise itinerary designed by Rocky Mountaineer or add a rail package to any Alaska cruise to experience a trip like no other. Departing from either Seattle, USA or Vancouver, Canada, you can take in the enormous heights of the Canadian Rockies as well as the wild fjords of Alaska on one seamless journey across land and sea. Perfect for wildlife lovers hoping to spot orcas, history buffs who enjoy visiting small, out-of-the-way port towns, and cruise fans who love nothing more than hitting the open water, merging a cruise with a Rocky Mountaineer journey is an inspired way to immerse yourself in the dramatic landscapes found in this corner of the world.
