Stunning rail journeys across the Rockies

While train travel can be a blissful experience whatever terrain you happen to be traversing, journeys through the mountainous and forested regions of America’s north are so entrancing you may never want them to end.

King amongst these has to be the Rocky Mountaineer, unquestionably among the most spectacular in the world, which will take you over two days of all-daylight rail travel across the North Thompson and Fraser Valleys and the Rocky Mountains. You can experience this for yourself on our luxurious Canada tours.

Unparalleled vistas are made even more unforgettable by the unimpeded views you enjoy from its glass domed carriage. Not only do the vistas stretch for miles in all directions, so does the sky above you. The experience is enhanced further by GoldLeaf Service, which includes drinks, gourmet breakfast and lunch in the downstairs dining carriage.

Your forays into wonder with Scenic also include travels by VIA Rail. You’ll get to enjoy Sleeper Plus Class on journeys between Vancouver and Jasper, where you can luxuriate in the nostalgic romance of rail. Again, there’s a glass dome carriage, a special dining carriage, and even an activities carriage, as well as social areas. There are also enjoyable VIA Rail journeys from Edmonton to Jasper, and Halifax to Montréal.

Not least, you can look forward to travel on the McKinley Explorer from Anchorage to Denali when travelling Holland America Line, and the Midnight Sun Express from Talkeetna to Denali when travelling with Princess Cruises – and with all the conveniences, from splendid glass dome carriages to dining venues par excellence.
