Join us on this 3rd annual and amazing tour in western Canada. This epic journey visits Banff, Lake Louise and the Canadian Rockies. Reflecting on our country’s history on board the famous Rocky Mountaineer Railway excursion, we will travel the same routing from Banff to the Pacific Ocean that was followed by Canada’s first transcontinental rail line when it was completed back in the late 1880s. Our tour concludes in the beautiful west coast port city of Vancouver. The railway played a significant role in the history of western Canada – in fact, it is the only reason that Banff National Park, the third-oldest national park in the world, even exists today! Come along on this Carefree Journey from the Rockies to the Pacific!
