Beautiful downtown Banff

The Rocky Mountaineer train between Vancouver and Banff National Park (service available both directions) is our most popular train trip for a number of reasons.

This two day Rocky Mountaineer trip gives you a chance to travel through Canada’s Rocky Mountains and spend a night, or longer, in the town of Banff, the most picturesque town in the Canadian Rockies.

Furthermore, Banff is only 55 km (34 miles) from Lake Louise, one of the world’s most iconic and popular destinations. We offer both day trips to Lake Louise from Banff  and packages with overnight stays at the renowned Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Finally, Banff is only 140 km (86 miles) from Calgary International airport, the closest airport to the Rockies.

Airport shuttles are available between Calgary airport and Banff several times daily and take 1 hour 45 minutes.

Because Banff is the visitor hub of the Canadian Rockies, the two day train trip between Vancouver and Banff forms the basis for many of our Rocky Mountaineer Rail packages.

There is NO train service to/from Calgary. However, all packages that begin or end in Calgary include a transfer between Banff National Park, or Lake Louise, and Calgary airport or downtown Calgary. We can also add tours and rental cars that begin in the Rockies and end in Calgary.
