From your luxurious seat inside your Rocky Mountaineer glass-dome coach, it’s almost as if you could reach out and touch the awe-inspiring hawk soaring directly overhead. He seems to follow your trajectory through the Rocky Mountains speeding along the legendary Canadian Pacific track. With four routes and over 65 vacation packages, these memorable train rides range from epic land-and-cruise expeditions to two-day excursions that offer a scenic overview of the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies.
Impeccable touches permeate every aspect of your journey, but the signature GoldLeaf Service is beyond compare. Your reclining and rotating seat is perched on the upper level of the custom-designed bi-level glass-dome coach, revealing panoramic views. Your gourmet meals are served in the exclusive lower-level dining room, where picture windows provide continuing vistas — step out onto your exclusive outdoor vestibule to feel the mountain air.
Onboard gourmet dining is even more impressive when you consider its origins in the narrow, moving kitchen where executive chefs Frederic Couton and Jean Pierre Guerin work their magic. Michelin-worthy dishes deliver local standouts such as prime Alberta beef accompanied by native produce, or wild BC salmon pan-seared and lightly roasted, served with fennel slaw, smoked sea salt, old fashioned mustard vinaigrette and roasted potato salad. Complimentary wines from the Okanagan Valley region make for the perfect accompaniment.
Whether you’re a railway buff looking to wind through remote and rugged landscapes or in search of a laid-back approach to covering Western Canada, a trip with Rocky Mountaineer promises to be an unforgettable journey.
