  TOUR ITINERARY  
 

Day 1 (Vancouver to Whistler - by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Travel aboard the Whistler Mountaineer from the coastal city of Vancouver to the resort town of Whistler, renowned for
outstanding skiing and year-round outdoor activities. Following your motorcoach transfer from downtown Vancouver,
the Whistler Mountaineer takes you on a breathtaking rail journey through the stunning scenery of the “Sea to Sky”
region. Highlights of the trip include spectacular views across Howe Sound and the Coastal Mountains, Shannon
Falls, Mount Garibaldi, and the impressive Cheakamus Canyon. Upon arrival at the Whistler train station, you will be
transferred to your overnight accommodation in Whistler Village. Breakfast is served onboard.

Day 2 (Whistler to Quesnel - by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Travel onboard the Rocky Mountaineer from the four-season mountain resort of Whistler to the charming rural town of
Quesnel, the gateway to the North Cariboo region. Enjoy breathtaking and varied scenery, from the river canyons and
lush farmland of the Pemberton Valley, to the desert-like conditions of the Fraser Canyon, and the Cariboo Plateau
with its rolling hills and vast ranchlands. Highlights include the shorelines of Anderson Lake and glacial-fed Seton
Lake, sweeping views of Fraser Canyon, and Deep Creek Bridge, one of the highest railway bridges in the world.
Your day concludes as the Rocky Mountaineer follows the banks of the Fraser River into Quesnel, your overnight
destination.

Day 3 (Quesnel to Jasper by Rocky Mountaineer Rail)
Your journey continues eastward today to the majestic Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park. From Quesnel,
the Rocky Mountaineer follows the Fraser River Northward to the town of Prince George and then travels East through
the forests of Northern British Columbia, home to plentiful wildlife including a large population of moose. Entering the
Rocky Mountain Trench, you are surrounded to the North by the steeply rising Rocky Mountains and to the South by the
Cariboo Mountains. Continue climbing past Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies at 3,954 metres
(12,972 feet), and through the Yellowhead Pass, into the province of Alberta. Your rail journey ends today on arrival in
Jasper. Overnight in Jasper.

Explorer " on the Athabasca Glacier! Overnight in Banff.

Day 6 (Banff National Park - by Coach)
Enjoy scenic views, including the spectacular Lower Falls as you walk through Johnston Canyon. At Lake Louise,

of Sulphur Mountain. Overnight in Lake Louise.
