What You Can Expect

Vancouver to Whistler by Train Rail Tour

Whistler Olympic Village

Board the famous Rocky Mountaineer train in Vancouver for an epic ride through British Columbia's jaw-dropping mountain terrain. Aboard the train, enjoy interpretive commentary of features along the route, and make your way to the Heritage Observation Car for fresh air and unrestricted views of the spectacular scenery. The Coast Classic cabin offers a traditional rail experience with extended legroom and scenic views through large picture windows, with continental breakfast or light meal served at your seat and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages.

Arrive in Whistler Village, one of North America's most popular ski resorts and host of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Here you'll disembark the Rocky Mountaineer and enjoy free time to explore the town independently.

On your return drive to Vancouver by minicoach, stop at Shannon Falls, the third-highest waterfall in British Columbia. Take a guided walk through an old-growth rainforest to see 1,000-year-old cedar trees with trunks measuring 35 to 40 feet (9 to 12 meters) wide. Then hit the beautiful Sea-to-Sky Highway back to Vancouver.

Please note: While the Rocky Mountaineer continues to provide other rail trips through Canada, this is the last season for its one-day Vancouver to Whistler route, which ends indefinitely at the end of September 2015.

Loved the Whistler train ride up the gorge. We also had a life-time experience by running the bobsled on wheels at the Slide Center.

Just as I expected and more. Lovely scenery and exceptional service.

Served us a lite meal and drinks just like a steward on an airplane.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The scenic train ride to Whistler is breathtaking. The train slows down so you can take photos at the high points of the ride. Our hostess Joanne was attentive and welcoming and answered all questions. Whistler village is quite large with an upper and lower village. A busy street separates the two. Nice restaurants and a walking trail is nearby.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The Vancouver - Whistler train trip was fantastic. The scenery was beautiful and ever changing. The staff on the train were excellent and very knowledgeable. The tour was well organised with plenty of time to explore in Whistler. The return trip by mini coach showed a different aspect and there were plenty of stops for sightseeing and taking photos. The tour guide was great and knowledgeable.
