Since 1990, Rocky Mountaineer has welcomed over 1.7 million guests to experience an awe-inspiring journey through the majestic Canadian Rockies and Pacific Northwest.
With spine-tingling views, world-class service, mouthwatering cuisine and luxurious surroundings, it’s no wonder a Rocky Mountaineer journey is considered by many to be one of the world’s best travel experiences.
Here are the five reasons why you should book a 2017 Rocky Mountaineer adventure for your clients.
1. All Domes, All the Time
Rocky Mountaineer offers a front row ticket to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.
We’re talking unparalleled, panoramic views – all enjoyed whilst sipping from a glass of BC wine of course!
From 2016 onwards, Rocky Mountaineer has boasted an all-dome fleet with two superior classes of service, GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf Service.
The custom-designed glass-domed coaches put guests right in the middle of the breathtaking scenery of the Canadian Rockies.
Rugged canyons, desert landscapes, shimmering lakes, cascading waterfalls and spectacular glaciers inspire even the most discerning of travellers.
2. Decisions, Decisions…
Rocky Mountaineer offers a choice of four dazzling routes that have one very distinct feature in common. And that is, of course, their utter uniqueness.
Think this is spoilt for choice? Wait until lunchtime and try choosing between the melt-in-your-mouth Braised Alberta Beef Short Ribs and the delectable Maple-Cured Roasted Salmon with Smoked Sea Salt served on the train.
No matter which route your clients decide on, Rocky Mountaineer guests are guaranteed to sit nose-pressed to the window as the train carves through extreme landscapes and the dramatic scenery unfolds around them (oh and rest assured, the kind folk at Rocky Mountaineer clean the windows thoroughly between each and every trip!).
3. Daylight Only Train Travel
As the saying goes, “You Snooze, You Lose”, and nobody wants to miss a grizzly bear sighting when visiting Canada!
Luckily Rocky Mountaineer travels by daylight with overnight stays in destinations such as Kamloops, Whistler and Quesnel, so not to miss a single beat of the breathtaking scenery along the way.
Rocky Mountaineer hosts provide engaging storytelling of the passing regions and never fail to point out glacier-capped mountains, tumbling waterfalls and fleeting wildlife.
All the guests need to do is have their cameras at the ready and listen out for the words “Bear on the left! Bear on the left!”.
4. Two service levels
The service on board Rocky Mountaineer is nothing short of impeccable – it’s no wonder they’ve won so many World Travel Awards!
For those who want to splash out (which is the majority of Rocky Mountaineer’s Aussie guests), GoldLeaf Service features optimal views of epic scenery and wildlife such as black bears, elk, bighorn sheep and moose.
Renowned for its luxurious bi-level glass-dome coaches, guests enjoy breakfast and lunch in a lower-level dining room, where internationally-acclaimed chefs create outstanding dishes made with the freshest of regional ingredients.
SilverLeaf Service is also sure to impress, where guests can enjoy the view through oversized windows and devour gourmet meals plated and served at their seat. Sounds delightful!
5. Endless Customisation Opportunities
To highlight the iconic destinations in the Canadian Rockies, Rocky Mountaineer offers over 65 vacation packages including several Rail and Cruise itineraries that combine a luxury rail vacation with a dramatic Alaska cruise.
Packages can be customised to suit each guest and make their trip even more memorable, including inspiring activities such as helicopter tours, whale watching excursions and gourmet dining experiences.
So no matter if your client is an adventure-lover, foodie, or spa aficionado, Rocky Mountaineer has a vacation package to suit their needs.
And last but not least, when you book a 2017 journey for your clients by 16 December, they will receive up to $800* per couple in added value to spend on extra hotel nights, meal plans, tours, and more! Learn more about Rocky Mountaineer’s Peaks & Perks offer.
