Journey Through the Clouds

Journey Through the Clouds is another highly regarded route offered by the acclaimed Rocky Mountaineer. This addition to the rail line's repertoire presents a new perspective on the Rockies, traveling from Vancouver on the coast to Jasper, located in Jasper National Park, the most extensive protected parkland in the Canadian Rockies. In true Rocky Mountaineer fashion, the train only travels during daylight hours, ensuring that all the natural splendor of Western Canada is on full display during the 560-mile, two-day route.

The train departs from Vancouver in the morning, offering picture-perfect views of the coast and the downtown skyline as the Rocky Mountaineer proceeds inland. Breakfast is served as the train winds through the stunning Fraser River Valley. This first stretch of the route is identical to the First Journey to the West's and takes passengers across the scenic Cisco Crossing, built in the late 1800s, and through mountain tunnels before arriving in Kamloops later in the evening.

Spend the night soaking in the ambiance of Kamloops before continuing on the remainder of the 274-mile journey. The next day passengers soak in stunning views of Mount Robson, the tallest mountain in all of the Canadian Rockies, and Yellowhead Pass, which is beloved for its breathtaking views.

Of course, taking Rocky Mountaineer's Journey to the Clouds is not just about getting from Vancouver to Jasper; it is about the old-world experience of luxury train travel. Guests may select from either SilverLeaf Service or GoldLeaf Service for their time on the train. Each class is brimming with amenities, from endless windows on the domed rail cars to outside observation decks and plenty of attention from the train's hosts.

Journey Through the Clouds Discovery Self-Drive - Calgary to Vancouver

“We had a great trip and saw such beautiful country. The self-drive portion worked well for us, giving us the flexibility to see what interested us at our own pace. The rail portion of the trip was enjoyable as well as relaxing. We had great hosts on the train who kept us (extremely) well fed and pointed out key sights.
