Rocky Mountaineer Rainforest to Gold Rush Explorer – 2022

NRHE/NRHW – 8 Nights / 9 Days


The Rainforest to Gold Rush Explorer includes a night in Vancouver before you embark on the Rocky Mountaineer to Whistler, site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

You’ll spend the night in Whistler Village before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer for your two day train journey to Jasper National Park. You’ll follows a rugged, northern route so you’ll be treated to spectacular scenery from start to finish.

When you reach Jasper, you’ll have a full day to explore Jasper. After your second night in Jasper, enjoy guided motor coach tours of the Columbia Icefield, the Athabasca Glacier, Yoho National Park and Banff. A helicopter flightseeing tour is included on your journey between Banff and Calgary.

This vacation begins with an overnight stay in Vancouver each Friday between April 30 and September 24, 2022.  It begins with an overnight stay in Calgary each Thursday from April 29 and September 23, 2022.

In 2017 this package was called the Northern Explorer.
