At the end of your rail journey

Depending on the rail route and direction in which you travel, arrival in your destination ranges from afternoon to early evening. Rail travel in North America is occasionally subject to unforeseen delays. While Rocky Mountaineer is treated as a priority on the train tracks it uses, occasional delays do occur. For that reason, please book accommodation in your arrival destination at the end of your journey, and do not arrange connecting transportation, including flights, on this day. Rocky Mountaineer can arrange for airport transfers, additional hotel nights, and tour options at the start or end of your rail journey with advance notice.
