Travel through scenic valleys, along the mighty Fraser River, through Hell’s Gate, and past the magnificent Pyramid Falls. This Rocky Mountaineer rail route, only accessible by train, also features the majestic Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
Vancouver to Kamloops
Begin Your Journey
Departing from Rocky Mountaineer's Vancouver station, you'll follow the scenic Fraser River eastbound. Soon, you'll be outside of the city and moving into the wilderness.
Start the day taking in views of the fertile farmlands of the Fraser Valley before being served a delicious breakfast that warms you to the core.
As you continue your journey towards Kamloops, you’ll find yourself in a desert-like landscape – a far cry from the coastal rainforest you left behind.
Sit down to a three-course lunch prepared by the onboard chefs as your Hosts entertain you with stories about the region.
Arrive in Kamploops
After a full day on the train, disembark in the charming town of Kamloops –the perfect place to take a soothing stroll along the riverside.
Kamloops to Jasper
Begin your day
From Kamloops, you’ll continue to wind your way eastward through the Shuswap region, with stunning lake views all the way.
Awaken Your Senses
Throughout the morning, you’ll be treated to breakfast and coffee as you awaken your senses to your newfound surroundings.
Just past Blue River, you'll get an exclusive view of the aptly named Pyramid Falls, from a vantage point accessible only by rail.
Mountains Stretching to the Sky
As the train ascends, so will your sense of wonder. Before you know it, you’ll be surrounded by mountains that stretch up to the sky, enjoying the view with a camera in hand.
Diverse Flavours & Local Ingredients
Enjoy a gourmet lunch inspired by the diverse flavours and local ingredients of Western Canada as you look forward to your Jasper arrival. Hear about the incredible history of the railway and the landmarks along the way.
As you approach Jasper National Park, Canada's largest, you can’t help but notice the magnificent Mount Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
