7 Mountain Ranges, 4 Iconic Routes - Experience the
Canadian Rockies: The Canadian Rocky Mountains
were formed millions of years ago as a result of the slow
movement of the earth's crust and the grinding of massive
glaciers, which sculpted the majestic Rockies during four major
ice ages. It has been estimated that the oldest rock in the
Canadian Rockies is over 600 million years old, and research has
indicated that this mountain region was once ocean shoreline.
Rocky Mountaineer: Rocky Mountaineer is so much
more than just a train. It's the key to unlocking a hidden world
of unparalleled beauty as you carve through otherwise
inaccessible terrain in the Canadian Rockies.
To provide the highest level of service and comfort, each guest
