5 ways to make your Rocky Mountaineer adventure even more amazing

Continue your Rocky Mountaineer adventure with these five tips.

Rocky Mountaineer

Posted on

26 Mar 2020

Just because the train has stopped rolling doesn’t mean your adventure has to. Rocky Mountaineer works with local tour companies throughout Western Canada to curate custom holiday packages in each destination, making it easy to continue exploring using Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper or Vancouver as your base.

Arrange sightseeing tickets for the Banff Gondola or the Vancouver Lookout, opt for half or full-day tours, or add on a few extra days to your vacation to experience a whole new landscape. Here are five great ways to keep your journey going:

Explore more in the national parks

A tour will help you make the most of your time in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, with professional guides sharing their expertise and love for this unique landscape and the wildlife it is home to. Spend the day exploring the highlights of Banff or Jasper national parks, explore the wild beauty of Maligne Lake, or ride on an Ice Explorer through the Columbia Icefields before walking on the Athabasca glacier. You could even combine a half day or sightseeing in Banff with a transfer to Calgary.

See the Rockies from above

Take in the view from above with a panoramic helicopter tour. From 2,300 metres (7,546 feet) above sea level, you’ll gain a dramatic appreciation for the rugged landscapes of the Canadian Rockies including lakes, waterfalls, glaciers and mountain ranges.

Head north from Vancouver

On Vancouver’s North Shore, cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge and walk among the treetops, then head up to Grouse Mountain to see the resident grizzly bears and enjoy the stunning views back to downtown. Travel further north from the city and spend the day exploring the mountain resort of Whistler or take a sea safari boat tour around Howe Sound, a southerly fjord.

Grab some island time

Take a trip over to Vancouver Island to visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens – a National Historic Site known for its outstanding floral displays. Visit Victoria, British Columbia’s capital city and spend time strolling the Inner Harbour and discovering the charming downtown district.

Explore further at Sonora

Add a few nights at the exclusive Sonora Resort, tucked away just off Vancouver Island. This all-inclusive wilderness retreat is known for eco-adventures, salmon fishing and even the chance to see grizzly bears and whales in the wild, along with its acclaimed culinary program and luxury spa.
