The Rocky Mountaineer is an amazing way to travel from Vancouver to Whistler or vice versa. It’s comfortable, stress-free and you’ll enjoy breathtaking scenery every step of the way.
The three-hour train trip takes you from the beautiful coastal city of Vancouver, through scenic Howe Sound and the spectacular Cheakamus Canyon. Howe Sound is North America’s southernmost fjord and is located northwest of Vancouver. Views of the sound are absolutely stunning from the Rocky Mountaineer. The Rocky Mountaineers Sea to Sky Climb is the most comfortable and intimate way to explore Cheakamus Canyon. Poke your head out the window and take in the dramatic scenery below.
Next, the train takes you across a trestle bridge and past the jagged snow-capped peaks of the Tantalus Mountains – a small but spectacular range of mountains in British Columbia. Pass by an old extinct volcano, before finally arriving in the mountain landscape of world-renowned Whistler Village. Whistler co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics with Vancouver, and is the ski capital of Canada.
