Step aboard Rocky Mountaineer

Welcome aboard Rocky Mountaineer, your passport to the spectacular landscapes of the Canadian Rockies and the American Southwest. Comfortable, luxurious carriages, exquisite food, knowledgeable Onboard Hosts and views of sprawling forests, snow-capped mountain peaks and rugged red rock canyons – it’s all part of the journey.

There are four Rocky Mountaineer routes available, three in Canada and one in the USA. We can build in any of Rocky Mountaineer’s 2-day and 3-day rail journeys into a tailor-made holiday itinerary created just for you. Alternatively, opt for a tour – we offer both independent and escorted group tours.

As the name suggests, Rocky Mountaineer focuses its attention to the Rocky Mountains. There are three routes in Canada, which travel between Vancouver and either Jasper or Banff. The USA route goes between Colorado’s capital city, Denver, and Moab, in Utah. These are bookable as standalone rail journeys or as part of a variety of extended independent and escorted touring itineraries.

Exploring either side of the rail trip is easy. In the USA, for example, you can start in Las Vegas and tour the majestic Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks before joining the train from Moab to Denver. In Canada, you can fly into either Calgary or Vancouver, ride one (or more!) of the classic Rocky Mountaineer routes, enjoy free days to explore the resorts of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, and see all the sightseeing highlights along the stunning Icefields Parkway. Our Cruise & Tour holidays combine Rocky Mountaineer with an escorted tour and a cruise to Alaska.
