Know before you go:
What most people don't know is that there are no sleeping compartments aboard the train. The Rocky Mountaineer experience is just part of an extended holiday in Western Canada. You choose the cities on their route that you want to stop in and for how long. You decide the hotels and the level of service you'd like and create an itinerary to suit your needs and budget. Some travelers even break up their journey with a cruise to Alaska.
Comfortable casual clothes and low shoes are recommended. Keep a sweater with you in case you are cool.
There is no WIFI aboard the train so don't count on it.
The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. You will take far more photos than you can imagine. Be sure to charge your batteries every evening.
Dietary restrictions are catered to and gluten free choices are included at every meal.
Passengers with mobility issues are helped to board the train and domed cars have elevators for those who cannot walk stairs easily.
Along with Rocky Mountaineer's great success comes expansion this year -- the addition of a U.S. component that stretches from Seattle to the city of Vancouver - making a total of five main routes and nine different destinations for travellers to choose from.
