Rocky Mountaineer First Passage to the West

Vancouver, Kamloops, Lake Louise, and Banff. 

With some of the most spectacular mountain and canyon ranges in the world, the Rocky Mountaineer First Passage to the West is a must-see for both history-buffs and rail enthusiasts.

From the Spiral Tunnels at Kicking Horse Pass to the place where the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed. Rail travel revolutionised Canada, this moment is seen as one of the pivotal points in Canadian history. In the same way, as the rail network united America, the East and West of Canada became one with the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway, at Jackfish Ontario in 1885.
