Your route


Day 1
Fly from UK to Vancouver
Day 2

Leave Vancouver and take your seat on the celebrated Rocky Mountaineer to Kamloops, Canada’s most scenic train ride. Keep your camera handy and gaze through the window at the spectacular passing scenery, which changes at every turn. Enjoy two days on board with dazzling views of lake shores, mountain peaks and winding canyons. Look out for the churning waters of Fraser Canyon’s Hell’s Gate and finish the day on the edge of peaceful Kamloops Lake.

After your night in Kamloops, re-board the Rocky Mountaineer and follow the spectacular North Thompson River through the mountains to Jasper National Park, whose rugged peaks and wild rivers are home to grizzly bears, moose and caribou. Here you’ll discover the mountain wilderness, admiring unbroken glacial landscapes filled with lakes, caves and waterfalls on an enchanting scenic tour. Afterwards, enjoy some leisure time in pretty Jasper, a small mountain hamlet, where you can choose to be whisked up to 2277m on the Skytram for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Lake Louise

Travel along the picturesque Icefields Parkway, which winds its way through the valleys of both Jasper and Banff National Parks to gorgeous Lake Louise. Stop to ride a specially-designed Ice Explorer onto the creeping Athabasca Glacier, and admire beautiful Bow Lake, glistening beneath the mountains. Final stop of the day is the shimmering expanse of turquoise tinted Lake Louise, where you’ll stay in the elegant Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, right on the lakeshore.
