From Banff, the train will glide west through the Canadian Rockies. The Rocky Mountaineer’s dome cars will provide you with uncompromising views of snow-packed peaks, tumbling mountain streams and earth-carving glaciers. After crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter British Columbia. The Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park, all noted landmarks, will add to the awe of your journey. The glacier-clad mountains give way to arid grassland hills of the Kamloops region. One night of accommodation in Kamloops is included in this package.
Day Three - Kamloops to Vancouver aboard the Rocky Mountaineer

The Canadian Coast Mountains combine with thick fir forests and the charging Fraser River to create a spectacular setting. Along the way you’ll pass Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon with sheer, towering walls that transform the Fraser River into a froth of surging rapids. Upon reaching Vancouver in the late afternoon, you can explore the city at your own pace. One night in one of our Popular hotels in Vancouver is included.
