Upon arrival into Vancouver Airport, make your way independently to your overnight hotel. Remainder of the day is at leisure.
The day is yours to discover the coastal city of Vancouver. Canada’s third-largest metropolitan centre. Vancouver is a busy port with a multi-cultural ambiance. The spectacular setting invites you outdoors: explore the restaurants, shopping, galleries and museums, nightlife, entertainment and more.
Why not give your Vancouver stay a twist with a 2 hour walking tour of Granville Island (not included), Canada’s second most visited destination for lovers of food, art and culture. During the tour you will eat your way through the world-famous Public Market and hear intriguing stories, culture and history behind the tasty creations. This is a truly authentic way to experience Vancouver.
Travel onboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to Kamloops, in the heart of British Columbia’s interior. On today’s journey you will see dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields of the Fraser River valley, through forests and winding river canyons surrounded by the peaks of the Coast and Cascade mountains, to the desert-like environment of the interior. Highlights include the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon and the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River. Your day concludes as the Rocky Mountaineer travels along the shores of Kamloops Lake and into Kamloops. Overnight in Kamloops.
Your journey continues eastwards to the mighty Canadian Rockies and the province of Alberta. Once again you will see a spectacular array of scenery as you travel across ranchlands, along rocky lakeshores, over high mountain passes and through the remarkable tunnels that form part of the rich rail history of the Canadian Rockies. Today’s highlights include Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven, the climb over Rogers Pass, the Kicking Horse Canyon, the Spiral Tunnels and, of course, the glaciers and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Your rail journey ends in the mountain hamlet of Lake Louise or the resort town of Banff
