Canadian Rockies



The Canadian Rockies is home to five national parks and charming alpine towns, and is one of Canada’s most popular destinations. Travel into the heart of incredible scenery on a Canadian Rockies train vacation and experience stunning vistas ranging from verdant river valleys and dramatic rock sheds to lush rainforests and deep canyons with the peaks of the majestic mountains, which span more than 69,000 square miles across two provinces, looming high above.

A Canadian Rockies tour can be part of a more extensive Canada train vacation or your sole vacation destination. Each include travel into the region aboard Western Canada’s preeminent trains as well as visits to must-see destinations like Banff National Park where you can travel aboard the Banff Gondola for the 8-minute ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain for panoramic views of the area; Lake Louise, known for its turquoise waters; the Columbia Icefield, situated along the Icefields Parkway; and, Jasper National Park, the largest national park in Canada.
