Canada simply has something for everyone: breathtaking scenery, amazing wildlife, vibrant cities, wonderful restaurants and plenty of shopping – to name just a few. I would thoroughly recommend experiencing the Rocky Mountaineer. During your trip, sit back and enjoy the first class service, food and scenery.
