Day 2 Vancouver to Kamloops

Travel onboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to

Kamloops, in the heart of British Columbia’s interior. On today’s journey you

will see 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 of the

BC Interior. Highlights include the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser

Canyon and the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River.

Your day concludes as the Rocky Mountaineer travels along the shores of

Kamloops Lake into Kamloops. Overnight in Kamloops. B, L.

Day 3 Kamloops to Jasper

Your journey continues north and east to the mighty Canadian Rockies and

the province of Alberta. Once again you will be surrounded by dramatic

scenery as you follow the banks of the North Thompson River through the

Monashee and Cariboo Mountains, climbing ever nearer to the high peaks of

the Continental Divide. Today’s highlights include Mount Robson, at 3,954

metres (12,972 feet) the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, Pyramid

Falls, and the climb over the Yellowhead Pass into Jasper National Park.

Your rail journey ends this evening on arrival in the resort town of Jasper.

many creatures that call this mountain park home.

The remainder of the day is free for you to explore more of Jasper

independently. Overnight in Jasper.

Day 5 Jasper to Lake Louise

Travel to Lake Louise via one of the most scenic highways in the world, the

Icefields Parkway. A stop will be made at Athabasca Falls before arriving

of the Athabasca Glacier to learn more about its geological features.

At the end of the tour you will be transferred to Banff. Overnight in Banff.

be approximately 2:00 p.m., scheduled checkout time is normally 12:00
