Itinerary

Day 1 – Your Canada Train Trip Begins - Welcome to West Coast Living
Vancouver is a delight – a modern oasis of restaurants, shopping, and cultural activities nestled in the spectacular scenery of dramatic mountain ranges plunging into the Pacific Ocean. This is the home of Stanley Park; the place dubbed ‘Hollywood North’, and the city most often heading the top of the list of the world’s ‘most desirable’. So grab a coffee and stop at a sidewalk café to watch the world go by.

Day 2 – All aboard from Sea to Sky
Step aboard the world-class Rocky Mountaineer train, and start the day in style with rich coffee and a breakfast served as you wind your way along the shores of Howe Sound. Take in the spectacular scenery of lush green mountains topped with snowy peaks that rise from the water just a few feet away. You’ll arrive in Whistler just before lunch time.

This afternoon, choose from a round of golf at the Chateau Whistler, or enjoy a 60-minute classic massage at the Vida Wellness spa is sure to soothe away any tension. Consider exploring Whistler Village with its excellent shopping, dining, sightseeing, and lounging opportunities.

Day 3 – Onboard the Rocky Mountaineer – Whistler to Quesnel
You may be reluctant to leave behind the luxurious comfort of your Whistler escape, but today’s rail journey is sure to entice. Departing Whistler in the morning, the Canadian Rockies train will wind its way through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

While drinking in this breathtaking landscape, every desire will be accommodated with delicious meals, friendly service, and expert interpretative narration of the region’s most delightful highlights. In order to maximize this once-in-a-life time luxury Canada train trip and its incredible views, all travel is done by daylight so you will make your bed in comfortable and scenic Quesnel.


Day 4 – Onboard the Rocky Mountaineer – Quesnel to Jasper
It might be hard to believe it possible, but today’s scenery may surpass yesterday’s, with the breathtaking arrival of the Canadian Rockies. The forest in this region is thick, lush, and home to all sorts of lively creatures – so be sure to keep an eye trained on the window to catch a lonely moose or wandering bear.

Step off the train in Jasper and into the embrace of these natural gems. You’re on top of the Earth, far from the stresses at home, and with the Canadian wilderness surrounding you and luxury awaiting, you’re truly at ease. The luxurious experience of the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge awaits upon check-in as you’re welcomed to the Grand Canadian lodge experience.


Day 5 – Golf or Spa – Jasper
The proximity of today’s indulgences is sure to delight – more time to spend relaxing in bed!

If the skies are blue and the green is calling, step onto the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge’s famous golf course and start working on your game. Don’t let the challenge of playing in the scenery of the Canadian Rockies affect your swing!

Another way to relax is the Insignia Spa’s deluxe Beauvert Package which includes a 60-minute massage, a manicure, and a pedicure.

However you spent the day, spend the night tantalizing your taste buds with the world-class and regionally sourced cuisine of the area.

Day 6 - The Icefields Parkway – Jasper to Banff
Leave bed behind as you board a luxury motorcoach taking you through the scenery in comfort, as you coast south along the Icefields Parkway. This scenic highway offers unsurpassed views of the Canadian Rockies. An expert guide on-board will give you added insight into the wilderness. A stop at the Athabasca Glacier, where an included snocoach ride on the Ice Explorer will see you right up to the beauty and wonder of the glaciers, is a highlight.

A detour to Lake Louise is a photographer’s delight – a clear, shimmering turquoise glacial lake surrounded by some of the most majestic mountains in the world. Lake Louise is like nowhere else.

The wilderness of the Canadian Rockies is replaced by the wild life of Banff, the most bustling town in the Rockies. Explore the restaurants and lounges of beautiful Banff before retiring to the luxurious Fairmont Banff Springs Resort.


Day 7 – Golf or Spa – Banff
Banff is considered by many to be the gem of any Canadian Rockies train vacation, and, after today, you may be tempted to agree.

Another round of golf or spa treatment is the way to spend the day today, taking in the majestic mountains of the Canadian Rockies. This sense of natural calm contributes to the soothing atmosphere of the 18-hole Stanley Thompson golf course – the perfect place to lower your handicap. You’ll feel as fresh and beautiful as your wilderness surroundings if you choose a Seasonings Bath, Scrub & Massage package which will be tied to the time of season you visit Banff.


Day 8 – Far too Soon - Banff to Calgary Airport
Filled with memories of your Canada train trip and the Rocky Mountains, you bid farewell to the Rockies and gradually descend through the foothills by luxury private vehicle, arriving in Calgary in time for your flight.
