From Vancouver to Banff Aboard the Rocky Mountaineer

Insider Mike Siegel celebrated the Rocky Mountaineer’s 25th anniversary by setting off on the train’s “First Passage to the West” route, a two-day trip from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Banff, Alberta.

Mike’s journey began with a day spent in Vancouver, where he took a Sea Safari zodiac boat tour with Sewell’s Marina in picturesque Horseshoe Bay. Next, it was time to hop aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and admire the stunning Canadian countryside from the train’s two-level, glass-domed coach (available to GoldLeaf class passengers). Mike’s trip ended in Banff, where he headed straight for the Sunshine Village Ski Resort for a day on the slopes.
