Advantages of Rail Travel
There are many unique features to rail travel. One of the greatest advantages, however, is the ability to travel through areas simply not accessible by foot, car or motor coach.
Rocky Mountaineer routes follow rushing rivers, pass beside towering waterfalls and ride through spectacular river canyons.
To truly appreciate the nature and scenery of the Canadian Rockies, rail travel offers the very best vantage point.
