FAQ’S

Our tours are conducted in English only, by a professional tour director with more than 10 years of experience and by professional Rocky Mountaineer attendants!

We recommend booking your tour as soon as your plans are confirmed, as departure dates are quite popular and can fill up quickly. Essentially, book early to avoid disappointment!

Individual pick-ups are not included in the tour, so we recommend taking a taxi to the Rocky Mountaineer train station (1755 Cottrell St).

Standard hotels are mountain lodge-style while deluxe hotels are resort-style. The majority of our guests choose standard accommodation as these hotels are very clean and comfortable, and travellers will get their own private room and washroom. Travellers who book deluxe accommodation often do so because they want to stay at Chateau Lake Louise. If you want to book premium accommodation, be sure to book early as these hotels sell out quickly – availability is limited within 6 months of departure!

Gratuities are not included in the prices (unless indicated). While it is neither our place nor our wish to tell you how much to tip, gratuities in Canada are often given in recognition of service excellence.

Depends on the day. if you are travelling from Vancouver to Jasper or Banff, it will be a minimum of 10 hours. However, every 2-3 hours, you get out of the bus for mini breaks. During the sightseeing days, you will spend little time on the bus as you will be walking/sightseeing/hiking & etc.

Day 1 (Banff to Kamloops) (Departs: 8:20 am, Arrives: 7:20 pm)*

Travel onboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the mountain town of Banff to the interior’s gateway city of Kamloops. Your journey offers you a spectacular array of scenery as you travel between the high peaks of the Canadian Rockies, over mountain passes and through remarkable tunnels, along rocky lakeshores and across the ranchlands of the interior. Today’s highlights include the Continental Divide, the Spiral Tunnels, Kicking Horse Canyon, Rogers Pass, Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven, and, of course, the glaciers and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Overnight in Kamloops. [B] [L]

 

Day 2 (Kamloops to Vancouver)
(Departs: 7:30 am, Arrives: 5:35 pm)*

Your journey continues West toward the Pacific Ocean and the coastal city of Vancouver. On today’s journey, you will again see dramatic changes in scenery, from the desert-like environment of the interior, through winding river canyons and pristine forests, to the Coast and Cascade Mountains and the lush green fields of the Fraser River Valley. Highlights include the steep slopes and snow sheds along the Thompson River, and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in Fraser Canyon. Your journey ends on arrival in Vancouver this evening. [B] [L]
