A Wonderful Train Ride

By: Roam


Reviewed on: 10 Sep 2018

Every detail of the train part of our trip was well thought out, and we truly enjoyed the experience. We would definitely recommend the Gold Leaf level of service, as you never have to worry about your luggage, and having breakfast and lunch right downstairs below the domed viewing car was so convenient. The staff were consistently enthusiastic and attentive. The views were awesome. We were sorry to leave the train behind in Jasper. One warning: check your itinerary and make sure you understand exactly how many times you will be packing and unpacking. For some locations, we arrived too late to really look around, and then we were back on the bus and off to the next location the next morning. It was exhausting, and we really got tired of being on the bus. Some people had itineraries that gave them two days at most locations, with some free time to explore. This would be a much better way to take this trip. The drivers are are very knowledgable and provided great commentary.

Rocky Mountain Train Trip

By: Loka


Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

It was good. We would do the trip differently now that we know what we know. We would do a different route. The one real complaint--we were on a very nice, updated car on our first leg of the trip; then on an older, not updated car on the second leg. Not good to have seen "what could have been" then downgraded.

The train trip was excellent with very comfortable seating, extremely dedicated and friendly staff, with superior meals and extra snacks. We enjoyed the scenery, especially being able to see the salmon run in the rivers. We did like the attentive service, staying at a hotel overnight, and all luggage handling included. We would certainly recommend this special trip to others.

Rocky Mountaineer

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2018

While we enjoyed all aspects of our trip very much; we were (and still are) confused about the levels of Gold Leaf Deluxe Service we booked. Some hotels offered us Fairmont Gold suite inclusions but some did not and said it wasn't part of our package. We inquired with both Rocky Mountaineer who told us to ask our travel advisor and also with our travel advisor who told us it was the Rocky Mountaineer's discretion. Again, very lovely trip but this was a point of frustration.

Rocky Mountaineer- unfortunate end to our trip

By: Jeff


Reviewed on: 15 Oct 2018

The Rocky Mountaineer trip was delightful up to the last day, Sept. 30, when we went from Banff to Calgary. This operation of the trip was a scheduling disaster. Trying to pack a coach trip around Banff, going to the gondola ride, circling back to Banff for lunch, then more sightseeing (hoodoos), then helicopters (several hours), then to Calgary- arriving hours late and not allowing any time in Calgary except late dinner. The day prior (September 29) was a "free day" and could have been used to pick up some of these activities in and around Banff. In short, it was a substandard end to an otherwise enjoyable trip.

Take the train!

By: Karen


Reviewed on: 18 Oct 2018

We spent two days in the Silver Leaf service of the Rocky Mountaineer and it was super. The staff was extremely personable, the food and drinks seemed never-ending, and the logistics were smooth and well thought out. The only aspect for travelers to be aware of is that RM shares the line with freight trains which take precedence. So sometimes you have to be patient. Just know that in advance and you will be fine.

Our Rocky Mountaineer experience was fantastic-- from the hotels and tours along the way, to the train journey itself. Luxury service! Even when the weather led to cancellation of some of our planned activities, the Rocky Mountaineer (and especially their affiliate, Brewster tours) handled it professionally and issued refunds. What a wonderful way to see Canada for the first time. I think "magical" sums up our experience pretty well!

Excellent! We would recommend the Gold Service to all! Loved having the luggage in our hotel room each night and the room keys handed to us on the train. Breakfast and lunch had many options for all to consider. And cooks tailored menu items to our preference. Only drawback was our room in one hotel in Jasper, which we would not consider up to the service level of Rocky Mountaineer. (Score 2 on a scale of 5 based on room odor, poor lightning, plastic furniture, and thin floors and walls.) Almost forgot -- The send off by all staff waving to us (in the rain) as we left the terminal for our trip.

The train and hosts were all very friendly and professional. The food was presented beautifully and was very delicious. We did spend 7 hours trapped in a motorcoach in a snowstorm in Jasper NP. So perhaps the subcontractor, Baxter Tours, might plan ahead a little better, given that the snowstorm was actually forecast for that day and the toilet on board was filling up fast while the toilet paper was running out just as quickly. But overall, other than that one 12 hour day, the train trip, the bus tours and the shuttle transfers were all great!

This was a fabulous trip. It was the best way to see the Canadian Rockies. From start to finish they we’re very organized, friendly and fun. We started in Vancouver boarded large, comfortable traveling cars that had glass ceilings for full scenic and wildlife viewing. As soon as we were out of Vancouver we traveled at an average speed of 35mph. This was perfect for taking pictures and spotting black bears, bald eagles, osprey, grizzlies and big horn sheep. Traveling in June made it ideal for seeing beautiful waterfalls, Hell’s rapids, kayakers and river rafters. The accommodations were superb, Fairmont Jasper lodge and lake Louise were beautiful. Only one night in a moderate room in Kamloops but it was comfortable and clean. We’ve recommended it to all our friends, many have heard about it but weren’t sure about the coordination and comfort level. Rest assured it will be one if your favorite trips!

We would highly recommend Rocky Mountaineer. They pay incredible attention to even the smallest details. The result? A relaxing, truly effortless journey. From our experience, Eastbound from Vancouver is the best way to do this; the two days on the train helps you get into "vacation mode," so you can truly enjoy the Canadian Rockies once you get to Lake Louise and Banff. I would expect the same thing would be true if the ultimate destination was Jasper. This is an indulgence that's truly worth the expense.

Our very enjoyable journey through the spectacular Canadian mountains was provided by a highly organized, very competent group of people with great partners.

The attendants were wonderful and the food and drink served were excellent. The full dome view of the scenery we passed was spectacular. The Rocky Mountaineer people ran every phase of our journey from luggage pick up to transport with precision. We were treated exceedingly well at the four Fairmont hotels that were part of our journey. We got excellent rooms with good views and were treated well when people learned of our RM connection.

Rocky Mountaineer adventure

Reviewed on: 23 Sep 2019

This trip was our first on Rocky Mountaineer, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We found them to be very organized, and our stops each night at hotels were absolutely painless, with our luggage usually in our rooms when we arrived, and we would receive our room keys as we exited the bus. The train was beautiful and very relaxing. We signed up for Silver Leaf service which was fine for us, and the food was fine as were the hotels. My suggestion for prospective travelers is that if you wish to dine at a separate dining table rather than at your seat, and wish to have meals that exceed very good, then you might consider Gold Leaf service. If that level of dining is not important to you, Silver Leaf service will more than meet your needs.

Rocky Mountaineer is a great way to see the Canadian Rockies along the railway that affords you the opportunity to see parts of the country that you could not see otherwise. The staff on the train are very attentive and the meals are luscious!

The Rocky Mountaineer is, without a doubt, a dream vacation.  The literature from Rocky Mountaineer doesn't come close to the actual experience.  Everything in the train coaches has been designed for the complete comfort of the guests and is always sparkling clean.  I cannot adequately describe the friendly, helpful employees on the train; nothing is too much to ask of them.  The meals are excellent with much attention to the presentation.  The hotels selected by RM are a reflection of the quality experienced on the train itself.  RM must be complimented on the handling of  the baggage.  Never once was a bag misplaced or delayed; the process was seamless.  Thank you Rocky Mountaineer!

The Rocky Mountaineer train was comfortable and the staff excellent beyond our expectations--courteous, knowledgable, talented, and accommodating. Our gluten-free diet was happily, and creatively, presented. My birthday was celebrated with a signed card by the staff and four beautiful prints from vintage Rocky Mountaineer posters. Since Rocky Mountaineer Travel booked our Gold Service hotels, our only disappointment was the hotels in both Kamloops and Victora. The company REALLY needs to provide better accommodations in Kamloops--the place is horrible with no decent restaurant. There may be better places to eat in Kamloops, but after a 12-hr. train trip we just wanted a quick bite in the hotel (very disappointing) before retiring. Our other hotel disappointment was the Victoria Empress where we were told that our booking level, Gold Service and Virtuoso, didn't warrant a room with a water view. Rocky Mountaineer needs a better agreement with the Victoria Empress!

RM needs to provide more personal contact with their representatives.  Service and food on the train was excellent, however more commentary should be given,  and RM needs more involvement during the motorcoach part of the tour.  The gold leaf deluxe seems to rely on Fairmont for its price, but RM should be more visible. Also to not include Lake Morraine is a major reason I would hesitate to recommend this tour.

Totally enjoyed our recent trip on the Rocky Mountaineer.   I have a few comments that would have made the trip much better for our group.   First, the RM tour guide on our bus from Calgary to Banff was not even mediocure.  While he seemed to know a lot of sfuff, his delivery was boring and often confusing.   He did not represent RM well and given the cost of this trip we deserved much better.   I have toured a lot in the Americas and Europe and he is the worst guide I ever encountered.  Second,  It felt like we wasted a day of our time traveling between Banff and Lake Louise and back to Banff.   Planners need to fill this time better.   The highlight of my trip was a visit to Bouchart Gardens and it was not included in the RM part of the trip.   It should have been seen by everyone.

We stay in the Gold Leaf cart and the hosts are so kind to my 2 boys - they allow them to stay with them and let them to help out. They have all these games for the kids to keep them engaged. I don't know how I can do that without their extraordinary service. I will definitely go again with my parents next time. One thing I would like to point out is the "land" service, I would recommend that RM should have representative in every stop to help the passangers to check-in.

Banff to Vancouver

Reviewed on: 14 Jun 2018

Day 1. CP went on strike so we had to travel 9 and a half hours on a mediocre bus. The scenery was beautiful but no alcoholic drinks and a terrible box snack was served. Not on our bucket list. Kamloops accommodation where we stayed overnight was great. Day 2. We boarded the train. It was fabulous! Everything we expected. Smooth ride, great scenery, delicious food, amazing staff. And because of our disappointing first day, they compensated us royally.

The accommodations on the train were good. The food was good and your personnel were very accommodating and informative. The hotels were nice but was disappointed that there was a strike (not your fault) and our group was caught up in it but you did provide us with a bus tour from Kamloops to Banff. We were able to take breaks at different places, which re leaved our non movement.

I was only on the train for one day because of a strike. Very disappointed. The one day the service and care I received were excellent . We where put on a bus and they did the best they could but it was not the same. Very long and tiring day. Plus the hotel we were put in was not what I expected Very disappointing trip.

Too many problems

By: Freud


Reviewed on: 18 Jun 2018

When it was necessary to go to a plan B because of a rail strike, they were very unprepared. The right hand did not know what the left hand was doing. We got different stories from different people. We were lied to several times, as a result. They did not accommodate to special needs. We went from chocolate and champagne to granola bars and hard candy. They agreed to compensate us for the lost day, but it wasn’t adequate and they operated with the one size fits all rule. We have already recommended other travel programs to three other families.

Rocky Mountain Circle route

An amazing trip and worth every penny! However Rocky M must do more to educate every passenger about correct hygiene when having a serious cough - especially during flu season. Many people coughing on the return trip and most were observed being completely ignorant about such practises -such as coughing in to their arm instead of their hands. Using hand sanitizer. This could be easily handled by merely giving every passenger a small note reminding them that it is flu season and what steps to take to protect the other passengers from being unnecessarily exposed. All staff were wonderful and we really enjoyed the train crew on the 1'st 2 days northbound. Wonderful stories and an excellent rapport among themselves. Please schedule them together as much as possible!

We were treated to a doom car with a dining car underneath. The views were wonderful and we even saw some bighorn sheep and bald eagles. The food was truly fabulous. We arrived in Vancouver. The next day we took an electric bus to where ferries landed, drove onto the ferry, went to Vancouver Island where we toured Butchart Gardens.

Rocky Mountaineer is overrated

By: DEB


Reviewed on: 02 Sep 2021

Originally our trip was supposed to be in August 2020 on the Canadian Rocky Mountaineer to celebrate our friends' 50th wedding anniversary with a total of 4 couple. Canada would not allow anyone from the US in and Rocky Mountaineer refused to reimburse our deposits. We switched to the US Rocky Mountaineer US Tour. I personally feel that the train is way overrated. The first day was beautiful, we traveled along the Colorado River and mountains. The second day, was boring. We traveled next to the main roads to Moab. We transferred to a bus outside of Moab in the middle of the desert. The food and service on the train was excellent. The rest of our 4 day trip was to see the National Parks on board a Mercedes Coach that seated 10 ending in Vegas. Enjoyed a boat ride on the Colorado River with live music. The hotels, breakfasts, lunches, dinners along the way were excellent. Our tour guide, Sabrina, was great and very accommodating. I would skip the train expense next time.

One had to be sure to check with the bus driver/tour guide to be sure you were on the correct bus. Thankfully they had lists, so would check off names as we got on. Only one hotel had the information on departure. The other receptionists were clueless. The accommodations were very nice. We had amazing meals with our meal vouchers.

The concept for this trip was great. Since the trip in the Southwest US, "Rockies to Red Rocks" is a new offering for Rocky Mountaineer, there were some hiccups.

The train was clean as were the hotels. This is a new route for Rocky Mountaineer, and in the future staff will know more about the area and can provide more information about it. My experience on the motorcoach extension of the tour, handled by Southwest Adventure Tours, was sub par. The scheduled start time for daily activities did not correspond with actual start times In three cases, and we missed breakfast because of that problem. Some activities, like the Lake Powell cruise and the Colorado Boat ride were eliminated or drastically shortened due to lack of water.

We found the boarding process in Denver to be disorganized and chaotic. We had to ask several people at Denver Union Station where to board the Rocky Mountaineer. When we went outside we saw two charter busses and had to ask the people around the busses if this was for the Rocky Mountaineer. Turns out it was, however there wasn't any signage indicating that this was the boarding area. Once we were on the train the onboard staff were friendly and pleasant. The food and drinks were good as well. It is unfortunate that the Rocky Mountaineer train doesn't board passengers at Denver Union Station. The Crawford Hotel was a huge disappointment, however the hotels in Glenwood Springs, Moab and Salt Lake City were good. The shuttle van from Moab to Salt Lake City was not comfortable and wasn't any enforcement of mask mandates even with a passenger coughing. The reason in the end we gave the Rocky Mountaineer a no is because we didn't see the value for the high price of the tickets.

This rail excursion through British Columbia and Alberta, Canada MUST be experienced! Moving through both the Cascade and Rocky Mountains will leave you speechless; God’s magnificence surrounds you each and every day! And, while the landscape/scenery, certainly could not be improved upon, the staff on board the Rocky Mountaineer was equally exemplary!!! Each “Mountaineer” assigned to our rail car was attentive, witty, friendly, happy to be experiencing each and every moment with every passenger. Rail cars; individual “berths”, dining area, restrooms were impeccable, especially in a COVID world! Each meal served in the train was delicious. The mimosas, bloody Mary’s, wine tastings, added so much fun! One weakness was the breakdown regarding the distribution of boarding documents. After standing in line for over 75min, we, along with many other passengers were told we had no boarding documents. In the future, better communication; TRM knew we had no documents; why were we in line???

Our experience on the train was nearly flawless. The staff was professional, efficient and personable in making us comfortable and informing us about what we were seeing—or about to see—during our two days aboard. One snafu at the end of the trip when we disembarked in Vancouver involved putting us on the wrong bus for delivery to our hotel. The driver got us there, albeit a bit late. We witnessed a few issues with other travelers involving delays with RM having to correct its list of bus passengers, luggage etc.—perhaps attributable to insufficient or newly trained staff at the beginning of the season (and following Covid restrictions, etc.).

7 day Mountaineer trip Vancouver to Calgary

By: Grumpa


Reviewed on: 18 Jul 2022

The experience was good. A bit disappointing in the fact that we were only really on the train 2 of the 7 days. More motor coach travelling then we anticipated…which is more like just a big bus trip. Over night accommodations were very good. Food on the train was excellent. Sights from the train were awesome and varied. The Mountaineer staff were fun, engaging, entertaining, informative and very helpful. The Kamloops stop the only one on the trip we didn’t full enjoy. Really not much to see or do in Kamloops. Some sort of organized side trip or excursion option at Kamloops could improve that stop. Dinning choices were also somewhat limited in Kamloops. Lake Louise and Banff were great, lots to see and do at those destinations.

The trip itself was wonderful - beautiful views, delicious food, interesting commentary from the staff. The transfer from the train to the hotels and back was seamless, and considering the number of people on the train, it was remarkable how easy they made it seem. Our only complaint was at the beginning - there were not enough people in Vancouver to handle the line to get documents for the trip and the staff were actually rude. The next morning there was chaos in the hotel lobby and only one staff member to answer questions. Once we finally got on the right bus, the rest of the trip was terrific.

Our trip was breathtaking, but I must say I still don’t understand why rocky mountaineer charges so so much. The food was good, up not great on the train. All liquor was free but that isn’t so important since not everyone drinks. The windows should have been non reflective to take better pictures. And the itinerary was confusing. They also messed up our rooms by giving my husband and me two double beds rather than a queen or king, and when you call rocky mountaineer your getting a very junior person who can’t really help you. The hotel in kamloops was very disappointing. I was under the impression that the trip included meals and then found out it was only breakfast and lunch AND only on the train. And there is nowhere in the itinerary with recommendations of restaurants. So, overall the scenery was breathtaking but I don’t think I needed to go with rocky mountaineer for that. Sorry

Rocky Mountaineer Gives Exceptional Rail Experience

By: Kim


Reviewed on: 20 Jul 2022

I was very pleased with our experience aboard the Rocky Mountaineer Railroad. We were impressed with the Gold Leaf Service we signed up for. I do not regret the decision to pay a little more for this level. The meals were very good, and the team members were responsive to our requests. For example, I requested a substitution for a side on a meal and there was no hesitation to accommodate me. The seats while traveling were very comfortable, and we adored the seat heaters for cool, drizzly mornings. There seemed to be good working relationships amongst the staff members, and they worked hard! There was a constant flow of drinks, snacks, narration about the countryside, etc., rolling out seamlessly. The onboard experience could not be topped. I did see, however, some soft areas in the itinerary in regards to Rocky Mountaineer's transportation partners tasked with getting us to where we need to be. But considering the many moving parts to make a train ride happen, issues were few.

Touring the Red Rocks by train and van is a wonderful idea to make seeing these wonders of the Western U. S. so accessible and such a pleasant trip. Much better than traveling on your own. I have written to the Mountaineer Company with my suggestion that the three "free days" need planned experiences and a guide as we had on the rest of the trip. The Denver days and Las Vegas, for me, needed included, planned events. That wasn't necessary in Moab because there are so many choices there for tours and activities.The train was comfortable and the glass overhead windows are so important in having broad vistas of the glorious scenery. Dining was very classy with amazingly interesting and good meals and snacks--all on a train!Staff members were hospitable and professional.

We had a very beautiful trip seeing Canada via the Rocky Mountaineer! Overall I enjoyed the trip with service, food and scenery. Gold leaf is a nice upgrade and the way to go too!! One day on a bus tour was nice to break up the train segments. What I learned though is they are long days on a train and if I did again would change to 2 days and end in Banff and stay several days and fly home from Calgary! You stay at nice Fairmont hotels (small bathrooms) but really get very little time to enjoy them! Note: Kamloops hotels are not on same level of luxury as Fairmont and nothing really can do with this as more remote industrial town. We also had an incident with a guest getting sick on our train and very close to us and RM did not move them or us—-later friends of ours on the tour came down with CoVid. That was very disappointing and RM should realize they are on point to keep guests safe. Glad for overall experience but learned don’t want to pack-unpack everyday

RM is an excellent way to explore the Canadian Rockies.

The train & the dining area were really comfortable - we loved the dome in the upper level - it allowed us to see the wonderful vistas. Our stay at different Fairmont hotels (Vancouver, Lake Louise and Calgary) was what I would expect from a luxury travel arrangement. We loved the Chateau Lake Louise (who wouldn't?) as our well appointed room had a view of the iconic Lake Louise. The tour in Lake Louise with our hosts (Collin/Kodie) were entertaining & knowledgeable. Overall, we enjoyed our trip through RM & would recommend it to friends/family. 2 areas of opportunity: better hotels in Kamploops (stayed at Coastal Hotel)--it was a tad dingy; organize the bus assignments to Banff (it was chaotic).

my recommendation depends on the traveler: days are definitely very long and scenery gets repetitive. Day 1 of travel to Saskatoon need more afternoon snacks, especially of were the 1st seating for lunch. In addition, suggest having pre-arranged dinner reservations for group. We arrived at hotel 7-30-8pm on a busy Friday night and found, understandingly, waits at most nearby restaurants to be seated, then time time for food to be delivered. Also, way too early start on the morning of Day2. TAin hosts could have done a better job with sight seeing narration, often forgetting to mention which side of train to look. This should be the 1st piece of info offered.

This trip was definitely a pampering experience. Having that wonderful crew taking care of our every need as we cruised through the beauty of the Canadian Rockies was a real treat. None of us had to keep our “eyes on the road” or deal with traffic. We were able to relax and have delicious meals and beverages brought to us as we watched through the enormous glass windows and roof! The service was exceptional. The staff was super friendly and attentive. We couldn’t have asked for more!

My wife and I recently completed the Rocky Mountaineer trip from Vancouver to Banff. Absolutely gorgeous scenery, wonderful food and great service. We spent an extra day in Vancouver and probably should have spent 2. We only had one extra day in Banff and again hindsight says we should have had at least 2 before our travel day. One comment on air travel. The airlines forgot a lot during Covid and it takes much Much more time to get through Security and Customs. Plan accordingly.

Everyone was very nice to work with on the train. They took very good care of us and easy to understand with their instructions. Luggage was handled very good. Tours and the bus drivers, etc. were very good and interacted with the passengers on the bus. The only complaint was the number of people on the bus and how long it took everyone to get on and off the bus. I would have liked smaller groups on the buses.

The food and service was good but the trip was too long for us, we felt like we saw most of what we needed to see in the first 3-4 hours. Plus we didn’t particularly care for being herded to and from the stopovers very late in the evenings and too early in the morning. The staff was very attentive and the food was good, just not our cup of tea.

Amazing views of mountains,streams and trains. Yes the Rocky Mountain train is beautiful as you can see it around long curves or over bridges. You also spend a lot of time on a side track watching freight trains hurry past. Take pictures from the vestibule for your grandkids. It is like you are part of a Christmas train layout. You are not in a hurry and sitting still works best for pictures of those vistas.

We can highly recommend the Rocky Mountaineer. From the moment we got to the station in Vancouver until we got off the train in Lake Louise, we were treated extremely well.

Last year we took the train in Colorodo and Utah and just loved the trip. Senery was awesome and the food/service was first class! The Vancouver to Jasper train was not quite up to the the same standards in food and scenery as the US experience last year. On the second day from Kamloops to Jasper, the train pulled into a siding 7 times waiting for other trains to pass. We felt like we spent more time in sidings than traveling to see the sights.

Traveled with a VERY SICK person!!!!

By: Teri


Reviewed on: 14 Aug 2023

I would never recommend Rocky Mountaineer. This trip cost about $1000 per day for 10 days. They used dirty buses that had non-operating features-air vents not working & the days were hot. The plug ins for phone charging were not operating. They allowed an extremely sick person to ride in the open train car for the 2nd part of the journey. She was sitting with her husband but they moved her to a seat across the aisle from me. She was hacking for 2 straight days. She had a mask on the 1st day that did NOT fit & she had a disgusting pile of used kleenex in front of her. She used the dining car & would walk to the front of the train car to take photos, touching all surfaces, railings, etc. The 2nd day she didn't bother wearing her mask.She should NOT have been allowed on the train or should have been isolated & had her meals brought to her. We had a doctor in our group who even said this was wrong. Needless to say, I came home with COVID. I am NOT a happy traveler!

We really, really enjoyed this train ride. Enough so that another train ride on a different loop might be in play. Scenery is beyond words. Meals were top notch and adult beverages plentiful. Staff ensured your enjoyment. If you’re in a hurry, not for you. Want someone else to drive, sit back and take it all in. I would say that two days was long enough to be on the train. A longer trip might need to be done in pieces (we are active and like to walk each day). There is nothing negative I can say about this experience. It was awesome!

It was a two part trip. First was buses to various sites around Banff, Columbia Icefield and Jasper. This was or favorite part of the trip. It was well organized and the drivers/ hosts were excellent. It was the best way to see things close up and get pictures. The second part was the train ride from Jasper to Vancouver. The train was excellent and the staff were very attentive. More difficult to get pictures because the train was moving but still an outstanding trip. If I was to do it again I would do the train first so your seeing the Rockies for the first time. You get a little desensitized after all you see on the bus tours.

    Sustainability

    Our Commitment

    Rocky Mountaineer’s commitment to sustainability focuses on protecting the areas we travel through, using resources wisely as we operate our business, and supporting our local communities. We partner with and support organizations that protect nature and wildlife, honour local culture, and inspire action to deliver meaningful impact in our communities. Lonely Planet unveiled its Best in Travel Picks for 2021 and we are proud to share that Rocky Mountaineer won the Best Sustainable Train Journey Category.

    For many years, we have focused on decreasing our impact on the environment. While onboard, guests dine on reusable tableware, which is washed and disinfected on the train. In 2019, we added 10 new GoldLeaf rail cars to our fleet, which have a number of energy efficient enhancements, including dishwashers that use 20% less water than previous models. In addition, we plant a tree with Trees Canada to honour the employment anniversary of each team member. More than 13,500 trees have been planted in Canada since 2008.

    In 2020, we set two ambitious goals to further decrease our impact on the environment: to divert 90% of waste from landfill by 2023 and to reduce carbon emissions across our operations for the long term. As part of these goals, we are supporting research that is underway to explore the feasibility of alternative fuel sources for the train, which is an exciting project for the future.
