With three unique rail routes each showcasing Western Canada’s most spectacular scenery, travelling between Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies onboard Rocky Mountaineer offers an unparalleled way to celebrate your next big occasion. Whether it’s a big birthday, a special wedding anniversary, a personal success, or a family reunion, the experience has a way of bringing people together. Only travelling during daylight, the train moves at a relaxed pace, giving guests the luxury of time: time to reconnect with one another, time to savour the ever-changing landscapes outside, and time to linger over a glass of wine and contemplate it all. Here are four great reasons to mark your next milestone with a Rocky Mountaineer train journey.

1. Build your bond: The romance of train travel means there’s nothing like getting your first glimpse of the Canadian Rockies through the glass-dome windows with the one you love right by your side. With your onboard hosts taking care of you, you’ll have plenty of time to reminisce and create new memories together as you pass glacier-fed lakes, see a mama bear and her cubs, or eagles soaring over temperate rainforest.

2. Mark a milestone with a new adventure: Celebrating an important birthday is the perfect opportunity for a big adventure! If you’ve always dreamed of visiting Banff, Lake Louise or Jasper, Rocky Mountaineer is the ultimate way to explore the Canadian Rockies. Named “One of the World’s Greatest Trips” by National Geographic Traveler, this is the sort of experience that you’ll be talking about well past your next birthday.

3. An experience for all ages: A Rocky Mountaineer train journey offers something for all the family. The older generation will appreciate exploring Western Canada from their comfortable seats, knowing everything from their luggage transfer to their dietary needs are taken of. The younger members of your group won’t be able to stop taking Instagram-worthy photos of the scenery. Everyone can appreciate the chef-created meals paired with local wines and craft beer, as well as the fresh air and up-close experience on the outdoor viewing platform.

4. Every detail is taken care of: When you’re celebrating something special, not only do you want to feel pampered and taken care of, but you also want to know that you’re in good hands. With a Rocky Mountaineer train journey, everything is included— from engaging commentary and delicious meals, to comfortable overnight accommodation—leaving you to soak in every moment of the experience with those closest to you.

Events big and small are best celebrated with cheers, good food, great people and iconic sights. Celebrate special occasions
