If you landed on this page, you did so because the page you are looking for is no longer available on the site. Here are some options to get you where you want to go.
Train To Calgary:
There are no trains that either begin or end in Calgary itself. The Rocky Mountaineer operated a train from Calgary to Banff and Vancouver for a number of years, but the Calgary to Banff leg of the trip was cancelled in 2015. But you can still either begin or end your train trip in Calgary. It’s just that the first leg or last leg of the trip will be by bus.
You can take the Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Banff National Park and a shuttle from Banff to either downtown Calgary or Calgary airport. You can also fly to Calgary and take the Airport Shuttle from the Calgary airport to Banff National Park. The trip takes 2 hours by bus. Many of our packages include a transfer between Banff and Calgary and we can always add a transfer if you choose a package that doesn’t already have it.
Trans Canada Train Trips:
If you want to take a Trans Canada Train trip, you have a few options:
1. Take the Rocky Mountaineer Train from Vancouver to Jasper National Park and then board the ViaRail train from Jasper to Toronto, Montreal or Halifax.
2. Take the ViaRail train from Vancouver to Jasper, Toronto, Montreal or Halifax
If you want more information about the train to Whistler, I’m sorry to say that trip is no longer available. The Whistler train stopped operating in 2015. If you want to take the train from Vancouver to Jasper National Park, via Whistler. You can do that. It’s just that we don’t offer service just from Vancouver to Whistler, and there is no other company that offers that service.
Take a look at these packages if you want to take the Rocky Mountaineer from Vancouver to Jasper National Park and include Whistler along the way:
Vancouver, Whistler & Jasper National Park
Vancouver, Whistler & The Canadian Rockies with Train and Car
Vancouver, Whistler & The Canadian Rockies with Train and Tours
Rocky Mountaineer offered a train trip between Vancouver and Seattle from 2014-2018. It is no longer available; however, Amtrak offers twice daily service between Vancouver and Seattle, a morning and evening service. Go to Amtrak for more information, prices and reservations.
Rocky Mountaineer Train & Alaska Cruises
Alaska Cruise Ships and all other cruise ships have been banned from Vancouver for the entire 2021 season. If you wanted to combine an Alaska Cruise with your Rocky Mountaineer train trip, we recommend that you book a trip for 2022 or 2023.
