On today’s journey you will see dramatic changes in scenery, from the lush green fields of the Fraser River valley, through forests and winding river canyons surrounded by the peaks of the Coast and Cascade mountains, to the desert-like environment of the 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. Your day concludes as the Rocky Mountaineer travels along the shores of Kamloops Lake and into Kamloops. Overnight in
    Kamloops. B, L.

    • Day 2 Kamloops to Lake Louise or Banff

    Your journey continues eastwards to the mighty Canadian Rockies and the province
    of Alberta. Once again you will see a spectacular array of scenery as you travel across
    ranchlands, along rocky lakeshores, over high mountain passes and through the
    remarkable tunnels that form part of the rich rail history of the Canadian Rockies.
    Today’s highlights include Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific
    Railway was driven, the climb over Rogers Pass, the Kicking Horse Canyon, the
    Spiral Tunnels and, of course, the glaciers and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian
    Rockies. Your rail journey ends in the mountain hamlet of Lake Louise or the resort
    town of Banff. B, L.
