World's Most Scenic Train Rides

Rocky Mountaineer, Canada
The original Rocky Mountaineer route from Vancouver to Calgary follows the 1885 Canadian Pacific train route through Western Canada and the Canadian Rockies. You’ll see pristine wilderness: black lava cliffs and canyons, glacial lakes, turbulent rivers, bighorn sheep, and maybe even a black or grizzly bear.
Train Trivia: The two-day trip overnights in the town of Kamloops, British Columbia, so that travelers don’t miss the panoramas.
Insider Tip: The best views are in the seats in the front of the first Gold Leaf car, where first-class travelers sit in a glass-domed section on the top floor of the train.
Round-trip tickets from $1,441, including one night in Kamloops.
