 “The Canadian Rockies by Rail tour was wonderful. The drivers were very knowledgeable and we learned so much about the towns we were in. We fell in love with the staff on the train.” Gaylon, LeSueur MN 

 

Day 1 – Home to Vancouver, BC 

Today we fly from Minnesota into Vancouver, BC where we arrive in time to freshen up after checking into our home for two nights, The Listel Hotel. This boutique hotel is so much more than just a place to sleep. Dubbed Vancouver’s most “art-full hotel,” the hotel has filled its rooms with a collection of limited edition and original artwork. Following our check-in and exploring the hotel a bit, we’ll dine together our first evening at Seasons in the Park (Queen Elizabeth Park), offering wonderful cuisine and spectacular views of the city and mountain from the highest point in Vancouver.

Day 3 – Vancouver to Kamloops, BC – By Rail 

This morning we leave the coastal city of Vancouver behind as we board the Rocky Mountaineer in SilverLeaf class for a grand adventure filled with dramatic changes in scenery! Our coach’s dedicated hosts are master storytellers, which will make our experience even more memorable. Today’s journey will take us from the lush green fields of the Fraser Valley, through forests and river canyons surrounded by the peaks of the Coast and Cascade Mountains, to the desert-like environment of the British Columbia interior. Highlights include the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon and the steep slopes and rock sheds along the Thompson River. We will get to see it all from the comfort of the Rocky Mountaineer Rail! We’ll overnight in Kamloops, a city of about 90,000 situated at the confluence of the two branches of the Thompson River at Kamloops Lake. What a beautiful day!
