Embark on an unforgettable journey with Rocky Mountaineer

Rocky Mountaineer

Plan your next vacation package with us.

Carved out of fire and ice over millions of years, the Rocky Mountains  (the Rockies) reflect their dramatic origins with incredible landscapes sculpted by glaciers and lava that have formed towering snow-capped peaks, verdant forested valleys, deep gorges and rushing rivers.  Perhaps it’s no surprise that their name Rocky Mountaineer is inspired by this awe-inspiring group of mountains, and they have designed their elevated train vacations around giving guests the most elevated experience of these natural wonders. 

As you trace your finger down a map of the Rockies, you’ll see that they stretch from the north of Alberta and British Columbia all the way down south to New Mexico, forming the geological backbone of North America. Our love of exploration and passion for the Rockies led us south too, to share parts of an amazing region that can often only be reached by train, giving guests unparalleled access to the US Southwest and an experience of elevated train travel in the USA.

Experience Natural Beauty by Rail on Four Distinct Rail Routes

Rockies to the Red Rocks

Journey through two days of extraordinary landscapes between Moab, Utah and Denver, Colorado. Vast canyons, inspiring deserts, natural archways, and enchanting hoodoos are just a start. Available in SilverLeaf Service, this Rocky Mountaineer rail route is filled with highlights best seen by train, including Ruby Canyon, Mount Garfield and crossing the Continental Divide. If you want to explore more, you can also book one of Rocky Mountaineer’s carefully curated packages, with options to start or end your journey in Las Vegas or Salt Lake City.

First Passage to the West

Travel through the legendary Spiral Tunnels, traverse the Continental Divide, and be inspired as you wind through mountain passes and dramatic canyons. Experience the only passenger rail service on this historic rail route by Rocky Mountaineer, celebrated for connecting Canada from East to West.

Journey Through the Clouds

Travel through scenic valleys, along the mighty Fraser River, through Hell’s Gate, and past the magnificent Pyramid Falls. This Rocky Mountaineer rail route, only accessible by train, also features the majestic Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

Rainforest to Gold Rush

Witness true wilderness. Explore the mountain mecca of Whistler. See hidden lakes and canyons few others get to see. Relax in comfort as you move through seemingly impassable terrain by the Rocky Mountaineer train. Revel in the history of the gold rush. Marvel at Mount Robson, the Canadian Rockies’ highest peak.
