Rocky Mountaineer is a nature walk, from the luxury of a railcar.

If a walk in the woods feeds the soul, a ride on the Rocky Mountaineer is a soul’s all-you-can-eat buffet. With four routes from which to choose, glide through western Canada’s rugged terrain, hugging snow-capped mountains as you gently rock by heart-stopping waterfalls and miles of verdant wilderness, dotted by the occasional grizzly bear.

Each of the passenger cars in Rocky Mountaineer’s fleet is domed, providing awe-inspiring vistas in all directions as you soak in the splendor of the natural world. The Rocky Mountaineer offers a complete, once-in-a-lifetime Pacific Northwest nature excursion from the comfort of fully reclining leather seats. Friendly hosts guide you on your tour, recounting intriguing stories and sharing insider details and historical information about the towns and landmarks you pass. The train trundles along at 30 miles per hour, providing plenty of time to soak up the sights.

In addition to the views, the Rocky Mountaineer’s gourmet dining showcases British Columbia’s rich regional culture. Your executive chefs prepare menus based on locally sourced ingredients and pair each delicacy with a handpicked selection of local wines. GoldLeaf passengers can savor roasted salmon with smoked sea salt and freshly picked sweet field berry parfait.

For those who want to add a breath of fresh air, Rocky Mountaineer offers to coordinate excursions for each package. Trek across a glacier; watch orcas breach the ocean’s waves; inch your way across a suspension bridge; or even take a helicopter tour with panoramic views as far as the eye can see. And for passengers who just want to take it easy, your journey with Rocky Mountaineer includes a stay at a picturesque hotel each night of your one- to 14+ night trip.

Call AAA Traveler at 800-750-5386 to book your rail journey.
