Nine million tourists come to the Canadian Rockies every year. And the best way to see the sights is a Rocky Mountaineer train that cuts through the heart of the untamed wilderness of western Canada.
The Rocky Mountaineer takes passengers on a spectacular two-day journey into the heart of the Rocky Mountains. As guests travel through untamed wilderness across British Columbia, into Alberta, and back again, they're treated to panorama vistas and gourmet cuisine from the train's award-winning executive chef. With tickets costing up to $2,500, the pressure is on for all 76 staff members--as well as maintenance teams working behind the scenes--to give passengers a five-star rail experience.
