Experience extraordinary beauty and adventure on this affordable Canadian vacation. Travel from the sea port of Vancouver via scenic train through some of Canada’s most breathtaking landscapes. Enjoy guided sightseeing in Vancouver, then board your Rocky Mountaineer train for a 2-day trip through spectacular scenery following the Fraser River through snowcapped peaks to Kamloops. Travel through the Selkirk Mountains before entering gorgeous Yoho National Park, and wind through the Spiral tunnels before your train climbs Kicking Horse Pass. Cross the Continental Divide before entering Alberta and Banff National Park and onto Lake Louise for a night. Spend two nights in Banff with many options to play golf, horseback ride, hike, or relax at the hot springs. Look for big horn sheep, deer, bear, and the elusive wolf, perhaps via helicopter on an optional excursion. See the natural bridge spanning Kicking Horse River and visit Emerald and Moraine Lakes.
