Travel the old-fashioned way for a front-row seat to the world’s most beautiful landscapes. All aboard!

Rocky Mountaineer, Canada

2 of 11

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.
