Join us on this well-paced sojourn through Canada’s glorious Rocky Mountains—highlighted by two days traveling aboard the Rocky Mountaineer in Gold Leaf Service—with visits to the stunning areas of Lake Louise and Banff. En route, embrace the dynamic changes in scenery as you wind through lush green ranchlands and flowing river canyons surrounded by mountain peaks. Enjoy a guided tour through Yoho National Park and take advantage of leisure time to explore the small hamlets as well as Banff National Park. Splendid evenings await at the close of each inspiring day, including three nights at the magnificent Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff.  Embrace the sights from the train’s glass-domed coach as you traverse over Fraser Canyon, by Shuswap Lake, and along the Continental Divide. Take advantage of the Rocky Mountaineer’s private outdoor viewing platform to spot the passing wildlife, which may include elk, bighorn sheep, black and grizzly bears, and soaring eagles. Admire the brilliant turquoise waters of iconic Lake Louise, surrounded by towering mountain peaks that carve through the serene landscape. Relish three nights in the Canadian Rockies with leisure time to explore the area, or perhaps choose to visit the inviting thermal waters of nearby Banff Hot Springs. Discover the epic natural beauty of Banff National Park during a scenic gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain.
