Itinerary

Days 1-2 - Vancouver

Arrive in Vancouver and spend the rest of the day getting to know your new surroundings. Day 2 includes a guided sightseeing tour of Vancouver's North Shore. Travel across the Lions Gate Bridge, connecting the main city to the North Shore municipalities, before also crossing the splendid Capilano suspension bridge and heading into the surrounding mountains for an adventurous walk through the treetops. Continue to Granville Island, Canada's answer to Ellis Island, and sample some of the regional flavours at the local market. Here you can enjoy a leisurely walk along the waterfront, perhaps visiting some of the boutique shops and galleries.

Day 3-4 - Rocky Mountaineer to Banff

Begin the first leg of your journey aboard the famous Rocky Mountaineer today. Boarding the train in Vancouver to enjoy unsurpassable views of the most dramatic stretches of the line. Keep your eyes open for Canadian wildlife as the magnificent train leaves the Pacific Coast and travels along the Thompson and Fraser Canyons, past the Cascading Mountains and enters the desert-like environment of Canada's interior. Arrive in Kamloops to rest and re-fuel before you re-board. Re-board the train on Day 4, continuing through the Canadian Rockies on a route that takes in the scenery of the 'First Passage to the West'. Pass over the Continental Divide before disembarking in picturesque Banff.
