Travel on the iconic Rocky Mountaineer on this one way tour from Calgary, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, across to Vancouver on the Pacific Coast.  Take in the mountain town of Banff and experience one of the most photographed views in the world from the banks of Lake Louise before you board the train for a relaxed and luxurious two day, all daylight trip through the mountains. The sites and highlights are numerous but keep your eyes peeled for black and grizzly bears and Bald Eagles swooping around the banks of several rivers that you will cross.  A short trip but a fantastic way to see this amazing corner of a wonderful country.
