The hardest choice will be how long do you want to experience the train which you can have 2 days up to 7 days on the beautiful luxury line to enjoy the picturesque landscape that you would only see by train along with the wildlife sightings. If you are all into wildlife and history combined with beautiful scenery this is the place for you to try.

You can choose starting points such as Calgary, or Vancouver depending upon the route you take whether it is west to east or east to west. The First Passage will start in Vancouver taking you up to Kamloops into Banff and Lake Louise, or you can start at Lake Louise to Vancouver, it is all up to you. Keep in mind you do not travel the train at night, so you don’t miss anything along these breathtaking routes. You will stay at certain hotels according to the Silver or Gold Leaf selection you choose. Gold Leaf stays are with the Fairmount Hotels and the Silver Leaf with hotels more located closer to towns. No matter your choice you still be in awe with your journeys. Other choices are Journey through the Clouds, Rainforest to the Gold Rush and any one of these trips you can add on too or do a couple of them together to make a phenomenal experience for you and your family and friends that decide to go with you. Rocky Mountaineer also has the trip in the US for the Red Rocks, stating in Denver to Glenwood Spring to the Arches National Park to Moab.
