Once in your lifetime…

In this instalment we take an awe-inspiring rail jounrey through Canada.

Ride the Rocky Mountaineer

There are lots of thrilling travel experiences out there, but few give you the chance to see bald eagles, Canadian moose and grizzly bear in the wild, at the same time as enjoying first-class meals and complimentary drinks from a rotating reclining chair!

Welcome aboard the Rocky Mountaineer, one of the most sublime travel experiences in the world. This famous rail journey through the Canadian Rockies is as memorable as it is luxurious, taking you through spectacular mountain scenery whilst offering all the comfort, service and treats of travelling first class.

There are no sleeper cars on the Rocky Mountaineer. Instead guests stay in comfortable hotels, so you get the best of all worlds: ever-changing spectacular scenery by day, and a good night’s sleep every night.

Seating on board is spacious and comfortable, with large glass-domed coaches, huge panoramic windows, outdoor viewing areas and – of course – those reclining, rotating chairs. SilverLeaf guests travel on a single storey coach while, for a little extra luxury, GoldLeaf trains have two storeys – a lower one for dining and upper deck seating for sky-high views.

Whichever you choose, exploring landscapes not accessible by road or rail, passing rivers, canyons, waterfalls and mountains and looking out for bear, elk, bald eagles and osprey along the way, adventure travel doesn’t get much better than this!
