2015 - Rocky Mountaineer Canadian Rockies
Rocky Mountaineer Canadian Rockies Adventure
Since 1990, Rocky Mountaineer has had the extreme good fortune to carry guests from the world over into the heart of the famed Canadian Rockies. Now I know why Rocky Mountaineer has won eight World Travel Awards, hailed as the Academy Awards of the tourism industry!
I have recently returned from a fantastic experience traveling from Calgary to Lake Louise and Banff via motorcoach then to Kamloops and Vancouver via train. Truly a luxury train experience, Rocky Mountaineer lets you travel during the day through the Canadian Rockies and overnight along the way at luxury hotels. There are several train itineraries and you can customize your vacation by adding on motorcoach tours as well as independent travel.
The Fairmont hotel is normally your home in the evenings. I experienced the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, and the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. Ask me about the Summit Helicopter Tour in Calgary - certainly, a must do.
The Rocky Mountaineer Train experience was phenomenal! Service accommodations and dining were excellent. This is definitely the best way to see the Canadian Rockies.
