What to Expect
Moderate activity level
Familiar Cultural Immersion
PACING: Your Canadian Rockies adventure includes 1 Canadian province and 1 American state in 8 days, with a 2-night stay in Victoria and 1-night stays in Quesnal, Jasper, Vancouver, Kelowna, and Seattle, plus a full day aboard VIA Rail's The Canadian. Please note that the railways are shared with many other train companies, so uncontrollable delays are to be expected. 

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: Most sightseeing during your trans-Canada rail trip will be on air-conditioned coaches with guides. Most walking is easy, but some areas have rocky terrain or require uphill walking, with easy paths or steps available. The snow coach ride at Athabasca Glacier is easy for all ages.

CULTURAL FOCUS: Focus is on Canada's vast scenery, from cities to mountaintops. Includes nature and wildlife tours and a lecture, plus a snow coach ride on a glacier.

WHAT TO PACK: We suggest warm, casual clothing with good walking shoes for this Canadian Rockies vacation. Weather is never predictable, so be sure to to be prepared for just about anything. You'll want to take along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings, even in the summer months. It's a good idea to dress in layers, which will allow you to adjust to changes in temperature with the changes in elevation.

During your scenic train travel aboard the VIA Rail's The Canadian, there are no scheduled disembarkations. Some travelers may find it confining to be aboard the VIA Rail train for a full day, and should plan for the trip by bringing reading materials or other activities. Please note that with train travel, unexpected delays can occur due to the weather and train traffic. 

LUGGAGE RESTRICTIONS:To help make your travel experience as smooth and simple as possible, Vantage recommends you limit your luggage to one large suitcase and one small carry-on bag per person. Although airlines will generally allow more luggage, the transportation on your Vantage tour may have stricter space limitations. Domestic and international carriers currently restrict weight limitations to 35 pounds per bag. Please note the one carry-on bag limitation imposed by VIA Rail, and pack for the day on board accordingly — including any necessary medication.

Please note: Your trans-Canada rail trip will visit some high elevation areas. While driving to Jasper, the elevation rises to approximately 8,000 feet. High elevations may cause some people to experience mild fatigue. Anyone with concerns about traveling at high elevations should contact their personal physician.

Important Notice: The above day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Adventure Leader or regional expert.

Please Note: The hotels listed are preliminary and subject to change. Although we contract our hotels a year in advance, unforeseen situations do occasionally occur. Should it be necessary to change a hotel, one of equal quality and value will be substituted. You will receive verified hotel information with your final itinerary. That hotel ratings are based on the Hotel and a leading travel industry authority on hotels throughout the world.
