Itinerary
ItineraryCollapse All
Day 1 - Arrive in Calgary

Depart the UK and head for Western Canada.  As you will arrive late, your overnight will be conveniently located at the airport.

Day 2 - Calgary to Banff

Day 3 - Banff to Kamloops

Board your Rocky Mountaineer train in SilverLeaf and begin your journey. The railcar will provide you with views of snow-packed peaks, tumbling mountain streams and earth-carving glaciers. The Spiral Tunnels, Rogers Pass and Glacier National Park (12 percent of it is solid ice), all noted landmarks, will add to the awe of your journey. After crossing the Continental Divide, you’ll enter British Columbia. The glacier-clad mountains give way to arid grassland hills of the Kamloops region. Overnight in Kamloops.

Day 4 - Fraser River Valley

Your Rocky Mountaineer train will continue west before turning south into the Fraser River Valley. With the return of the mountains, the landscape again changes dramatically. The Canadian Cascades combine with thick fir forests and the charging Fraser River to create a spectacular setting. Along the way you’ll pass Hell’s Gate, a narrow canyon with sheer, towering walls that transforms the Fraser River into a froth of surging rapids.

Day 5 - Vancouver

Three full days in the vibrant city of Vancouver - explore the city at your own pace. Popular attractions include Gastown, Chinatown, Granville Square, Stanley Park and the Robson Street Shopping District.  Take a day trip to Whistler or Vancouver Island.  Head up Grouse Mountain and try the Capilano Suspension Bridge.  Try some of the amazing seafood, do a foodie tour or a brewery tour; there are so many different ways to explore this city.
