The First Passage to the West route features two enthralling full days on board the Rocky Mountaineer to Lake Louise or onward to Banff, with an overnight stop in Kamloops.
The Rocky Mountaineer departs early in the morning, and en route you will pass through the fertile fields of the Fraser Valley and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate at Fraser Canyon. Follow the Thompson River arriving in historic Kamloops early in the evening. You will spend one night here before reboarding the Rocky Mountaineer early the following morning. Continue your journey through the vast ranchlands, along the South Thompson River and through Craigellachie – the spot where the last spike of the historic Canadian Pacific Railway was placed. The journey continues onwards as you climb Rogers Pass, pass through the Kicking Horse Canyon and climb through the winding Spiral Tunnels and over the Continental Divide to Banff National Park. Depending on your chosen departure you may also stop at Lake Louise, one of the jewels of the Canadian Rockies. You can choose to end your journey here, or continue on to the resort town of Banff.
