Complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages whilst onboard Rocky Mountaineer

Vancouver Lookout

National Parks Pass

The Canadian Rockies are a remote and relatively unspoiled mountain range. The Journey Through the Clouds route takes you through some of the most untouched, most breathtaking natural beauty on the planet.

The journey begins in Vancouver, a haven of art, culture, food and nature. Enjoy a good night's sleep before you head off to Kamloops onboard the Rocky Mountaineer. Your journey starts gently, moving through the fertile farmland of the Fraser Valley and the rolling hills of the Coast Mountains. At your overnight stop of Kamloops, the river valley remains lush and green while sagebrush covers the surrounding desert-like hills. 

Then onto the alluring alpine town of Jasper, where you'll experience everything this national park has to offer from rugged natural terrain to incredible wildlife. The striking thing about this route is that once you've seen what you think is the most beautiful sight ever, something even more stunning comes along.
