Vancouver to Whistler

Now departing from cosmopolitan Vancouver, this three day journey on board Rocky Mountaineer will have you travelling along the Sea to Sky Corridor to the charming village of Whistler.  You will enjoy dramatic scenery as you slowly make the climb from the sparkling Pacific Ocean to old-growth forests and snow-capped mountain peaks.

Whistler to Quesnel

Depart from Whistler to the historic shorelines of Anderson and Seton Lakes, which allowed steamboats to open the interior of BC for colonization.  Just beyond lies the semi-desert scrub of the Fraser Canyon and the Cariboo Plateau ranchlands.  The day concludes as the train follows the Fraser River into Quesnel.

Quesnel to Jasper

The next morning, the journey continues east through the ethereal boarders of Northern BC, where the influence of the First Nations people is felt more strongly than anywhere else.  The Rocky Mountain Trench gives way to the mountains that rise steeply to the north and south.  Visitors will have the chance to photograph Mount Robson, soaring at 3,954 meters, before arriving at the heritage town of Jasper.
