This three-day rail adventure takes in British Columbia’s varied scenery, travelling through dense coastal rainforest, canyons and vast ranch lands of the Caribou Plateau. Watch through the window while you pass North America’s southernmost fjord, Howe Sound, and the cold glacial waters of Green Lake. Visit the remote gold pan city of Quesnel, with its rolling pastoral landscape and heritage buildings. The Rocky Mountaineer will carve through mountainous terrain while you watch incredible waterfalls tumble down the mountainsides on your journey past Mount Robson. Keep a look out for bears and moose as you cross the border in to Alberta for your final stop in the alpine town of Jasper.
