Canadian Rockies Train Trips

Canadian Rockies & Western Canada by Train

A West Coast Canada vacation includes all the makings of great vacation packages: a selection of vibrant cities, sun-dappled coastlines, snow-capped mountains, and lush parklands awaiting exploration. Home to five national parks, charming resort towns, and incredible scenery, the Canadian Rockies is one of Canada's most beloved destinations and is a highlight of many Western Canada tours. Getting there by rail is an experience that is not easily forgotten. Travel into the heart of the mountains on a Canadian Rockies train trip, and experience stunning vistas of verdant river valleys, dramatic rock sheds, lush rainforests, and deep canyons. As you enter the majestic 69,000-square-mile mountain range that is the Canadian Rockies, marvel at some of the most dramatic scenes in North America. 

A Canadian Rockies train trip can be part of a more extensive Canada rail tour or your sole vacation destination. Each of our Canadian Rockies tour packages includes transportation into the Rockies aboard Western Canada's preeminent trains, such as the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Banff or Jasper, or VIA Rail's Canadian train, which weaves through the Canadian Rockies en route to Toronto. The Canadian's route may also be followed in reverse, for tours from Toronto to Vancouver.

In the Rockies, enjoy time in must-see destinations, such as Banff National Park, where you can travel aboard the Banff Gondola, taking in panoramic views of the surrounding area during the 8-minute ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain. Select rail tours continue to Lake Louise, which enchants visitors with its charming chateau perched against its turquoise waters, or take a bus tour to the Columbia Icefield, situated along the Icefield Parkway. Jasper National Park, the largest national park in Canada, is another leading vacation destination in the Rockies. Itineraries range from four to 16 days and can be sorted by price, making selecting your railroad adventure convenient. No matter which Rocky Mountain train catches your interest, a trip through this region by rail is sure to become your favorite adventure.

Canadian Snow Train with Jasper
21 Mar 2020
CES
5 stars
“The Canadian Snow Train with three nights in Jasper was just spectacular! We always wanted to take a train across Canada and this one filled the bill. This trip takes you through five Canadian Provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. I highly recommend doing this trip in winter because the snow just makes everything so beautiful and you are sitting on the train just taking it all in, not even wearing a coat! The three nights in Jasper was also wonderful and yes, you will need a coat but not as many layers as you might think. Yes, it is cold but it is a dry cold and not the damp coldness we have in the east.

“I had a marvelous time on my first Vacations by Rail! I had never taken an overnight train trip before and found the experience very relaxing. The food was exceptional as was the kind, knowledgeable and friendly staff. The bus portion of the trip was also exceptional. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The bus drivers were above excellent,especially going up into the mountains on curved roads! It was a great experience overall and I look forward to booking another trip in the near future!

“Beautiful train ride on the Rocky Mountaineer and the Canadian Rail system. As a passenger train, we were low on the priority list, so had to give way to freight trains. But it was worth it, as it provided an opportunity to take in more of the scenery and watch the passing trains! Service was excellent and the food was great. Breakfast and lunch included on the Rocky Mountaineer. Due to traffic and frequent pull overs, we were 2 & 1/2 hr late getting into our town. The chef threw together a great dinner for us, which was a great treat!

“Vacations by Rail was great to work with, our agent Ryan never got tired of my questions and was always helpful. The whole trip was so easy because they did all the work, our vouchers arrived and off we went. The Rocky Mountaineer is by far the most amazing train trip you could ever take through the Canadian Rockies.
