Canadian Rockies Highlights (7 days)

Go West! The Canadian Rockies’ magnificent peaks span from the Interior Plains of Alberta to the Rocky Mountain Trench of British Columbia. Made of shale and limestone, and tipped with sparkling white snow, they’re so beautiful that UNESCO made them a World Heritage site. They’re also so tall, only advanced mountaineers can tackle them. But you don’t have to climb them. Rocky Mountaineer trains will wind through them while you enjoy the view. See Lake Louise, Banff and Kamloops before arriving in Vancouver. Embark on a journey of luxury and romance to Canada’s most-talked-about destinations. Canadian Rockies Highlights is a train adventure through Canada’s most breathtaking scenery.
