Tour Operator:

We invite you to join W&L’s exclusive 7-day journey from Vancouver to Calgary, enjoying the breathtaking panoramas of North America’s most spectacular mountains. Our journey includes two days aboard the Rocky Mountaineer’s luxurious, bi-level domed rail car, which allows travelers an unobstructed view of the passing scenery.

We’ll begin our adventure with a tour of beautiful Vancouver, with an optional pre-tour visit to Victoria, famous for its Butchart Gardens. Following our two-night stay at the deluxe Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, we’ll travel in the style and comfort of the Rocky Mountaineer’s deluxe Gold Leaf Service. We’ll take in the verdant fields of the Fraser Valley before winding along the splendor of the Fraser River canyon. After an overnight in Kamloops, our train trip winds along the shores of Shuswap Lake, eventually crossing the Continental Divide before arriving in Banff, where we’ll spend three nights at the Rimrock Resort Hotel. Among many pleasures, we’ll enjoy a scenic gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain and a day-trip to Lake Louise to behold Emerald Lake and the stunning alpine views of the saw-toothed mountains surrounding the Valley of the Ten Peaks before our festive farewell dinner at Rimrock Resort.

If you’re in the market for a spectacular one-week vacation, this fully inspected, customized itinerary is worth a second look.
