The Rocky Mountaineer Offers an Incredible Version of Western Canada

Be prepared to gain weight...

I gained two pounds aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and enjoyed every minute of the process. Forget the standard fare that is offered on standard trains. We were treated to gourmet breakfasts and lunches served in the lower level of our domed coach. There were always four menu choices to ponder (items with names like Gold Rush Scramble, Pacific Northwest Parfait or Last Spike'd Beef Short Ribs).

Dinning Car

Salmon Soup

Wine

When we couldn't make up our minds our server laughed and gifted us with an extra choice for the table to share. Complimentary Canadian wine and beer flowed at lunch and everybody lingered over coffee and dessert, deep in lively conversation.


A fond, sweet farewell...

I likened the kitchen and dining room employees to your favorite grandmother who shows her affection and caring by showering you with food. As our Rocky Mountaineer adventure was drawing to a close and we were saying our last goodbyes, a staff member suddenly appeared with a plate of freshly baked oatmeal cookies for us to enjoy on the road.

A fond sweet farewell

I thought it was a perfect touch and a wonderful way to end a 'train experience' that will definitely be almost impossible to beat.


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.

I heart this train

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.
