This luxury scenic train travels through the Canadian Rockies during the day, only slowing down to highlight the natural wonders. Savor handcrafted local cuisine, fine drinks, and countless snacks and treats as your professional onboard host recounts Western Canada's storied history and highlights its unforgettable natural beauty.
