Western Canada Trip Journal Days 7-8 Aboard the Rocky Mountaineer Luxury Train
Rocky Mountaineer – Our two-day luxury journey aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Jasper was completely out of this world.
We had been anxiously anticipating this part of our exploration of western Canada as folks like National Geographic were naming this as “one of the world’s greatest trips“.
As you can see in my photograph, we sat in a glass-domed rail car where our every need was attended to by smiling staff as the stunning scenery of western Canada, and the Canadian Rockies, streamed by in a constant, breathtaking panorama.
A level below our luxurious glass-domed seats was the dining car where we were served wonderful gourmet meals and enjoyed the company of people from all over the world.
I shot a significant amount a video during this phase of our trip, and I look forward to sharing it with you when we get back home.
This experience is certainly to remain one of our top travel experiences, and I think it just may have incubated a desire to make luxury train travel a consistent part of our travel regimen.
I’ll tell you much more about our “GoldLeaf” experience when we get home. For now, it’s time to explore Jasper in the Canadian Rockies.
