Journeys

We can offer holidays to include any of the following:
FIRST PASSAGE TO THE WEST: Banff to Vancouver or vice-versa
first passage to the west: banff to vancouver or vice-versa
Traversing the Kicking Horse Pass, this route is the original Rocky Mountaineer route, and is now the only commercial train over this world-famous route. Departures in either direction run three times per week from April to October and the full journey takes two days, with a stop overnight in Kamloops included.
JOURNEY TO THE CLOUDS: Jasper to Vancouver or vice-versa
journey to the clouds: jasper to vancouver or vice-versa
This route used to be known as the Yellowhead, taken from the name of the pass it crosses through the Rockies. You travel through the second and later of the two transcontinental Canadian railways. It is the same route taken by the national carrier VIA Rail on its Toronto to Vancouver train.
   RAINFOREST TO GOLDRUSH: North Vancouver to Whistler to Quesnel to Jasper
rainforest to goldrush: north vancouver to whistler to quesnel to jasper
This focuses on off-the-beaten-track highlights, as opposed to using an iconic cross-Canada railway line. You travel alongside the Fraser River on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway which was only completed midway through the 20th century. The route is splendidly scenic, particularly on the Fraser Canyon where you may see bears, bald eagles and ospreys from the train. It runs every week from April to October and takes three full days with overnight stops in Whistler and Quesnel.
