Although not a requirement to enter Canada, it is strongly recommended that whenever you travel outside your country of residence to have adequate medical and trip interruption insurance. Travel insurance not only protects you in the event of a medical emergency, but most insurance providers also offer practical assistance in the event of emergency travel plans such as booking last minute flights and hotels, delayed or lost luggage tracking assistance and of course peace of mind. Whether purchased directly through Rocky Mountaineer or with another travel professional, travel insurance is always a wise decision.

There are many unique features to rail travel. You will enjoy an extremely comfortable seat with ample legroom and have the freedom to stretch your legs and enjoy the fresh air while in the vestibules. Combined with attentive service and outstanding storytelling, this type of leisurely paced travel will ensure that you know you are on vacation.
One of the greatest advantages, however, is the ability to travel through areas simply not accessible by foot, car or motorcoach. The routes we travel on are described as engineering marvels and as we follow rushing rivers, pass beside towering waterfalls and ride through spectacular river canyons, you will understand why. To truly appreciate the nature and scenery in this part of the world, the Rocky Mountaineer offers the very best vantage point.
A few of the recommended activities in and around Vancouver are Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver Lookout and Grouse Mountain. See all recommended tours and excursions.
As the safety of our guests and crews is our top priority, we constantly monitor the wildfire situation in British Columbia and Alberta to evaluate any potential impact on our operations.

If you would like to discuss your upcoming journey, please contact our sales centre.
We partner with a number of hotel properties ranging from comfortable accommodations with restaurants on the property or within walking distance, to luxurious hotels and resorts with premium room categories.

As all our journeys are so amazing, there is no better time to travel, but dependent on your interest, the months offer different options. Flora, fauna and wildlife are all beginning to emerge in April and May, where waterways will be rushing and there’s often still snow dusting on the mountain peaks. In May and June, the cruising season begins. If you’re matching up a cruise with this journey, these would be great travel times. In September we start to see snow-capped peaks, and the salmon run takes place around this time, which attracts hungry bears and eagles.
Guests opting for GoldLeaf Service travel in a bi-level dome coach. In the upper-level, panoramic views are enjoyed through fully domed windows while gourmet meals from regional cuisine are served in the exclusive dining room lined with large picture windows on the lower level.
Guests opting for SilverLeaf Service while onboard Rocky Mountaineer travel in a custom-designed single-level dome coach with oversized domed windows. Guests enjoy delicious hot entrées served to them in the comfort of their seats.
