Rainforest to Goldrush
A showcase of Western Canada's scenic diversity beckons on Rocky
Mountaineer's longest route, Rainforest to Gold Rush. The train
follows the path less traveled, meandering through coastal
rainforests before entering timber and gold country and finally
proceeding into the Canadian Rockies. This extraordinary trip is
split into three distinct sections. An average speed of just 30 mph
in the most scenic portions of the route allows guests to soak in
all the splendor in each leg of the journey.
Lakes veiled by the flora and beautiful mountain peaks come into view. Wildlife roams within sight of the tracks as the train enters tranquil forests, and stunning waterfalls cascade down the mountains. This route is a feat of engineering, conquering increasingly tricky terrain as the tracks maneuver into the Canadian Rockies. One final spectacle, Mount Robson, comes into view as the train approaches Jasper.
The Rainforest to Gold Rush route offers all the luxury guests are accustomed to when traveling aboard Rocky Mountaineer in one unique package. Travelers can enjoy the train's amenities from either SilverLeaf Service or GoldLeaf Service. SilverLeaf guests enjoy travel in their comfortable assigned seats in single-level domed cars. In contrast, GoldLeaf travelers are seated in double-decker train cars, with the top level featuring a domed glass roof and the bottom level including a luxurious dining room. Delicious chef-prepared meals are served in both classes of service. The breakfast and lunch menus are all inspired by local ingredients and highlight regional cuisine. SilverLeaf travelers dine in their seats, and GoldLeaf guests move down to the dining car for their meals. Both classes of service enjoy complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for the duration of the journey, as well as gourmet morning and afternoon snacks.
