Rail and Self-Drive Vacations New Vacations

2019 sees the introduction of more Rocky Mountaineer rail and self-drive packages than ever before:

First Passage to the West Canmore Self-Drive New Vacations

Imagine a picture postcard mountain community, and you’ll be dreaming of Canmore. This authentic mountain town offers stunning views and a laid back atmosphere. Just 20 minutes from Banff, Canmore is home to accomplished athletes, artists and artisans. With walking and cycling paths meandering through the town, Canmore attracts people passionate about an outdoor lifestyle. Hike, mountaineer, explore caves, or take an eye-opening helicopter ride. Wildlife roam freely here, and so can you. Ask your Rocky Mountain Holidays agent for the best places to view wildlife, as well as for the popular hiking trails.

There are several museums, cafes and restaurants to explore. Wander down Main Street and discover the unique boutiques and eclectic art galleries. Eat a mouth-watering meal or try craft beer brewed with crystal clear mountain water and all-natural ingredients from a local watering hole. After all that exploring, you’ll need first rate accommodations.

You’ll be lodging at the luxurious Malcolm Hotel. Opened in spring 2018, this newly-constructed 4-star resort offers stylish contemporary design in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Close to all the action of Canmore, this refuge from the wilderness will indulge all of your desires. Unwind in the heated pool and hot tubs, or dine upon Western Canadian cuisine in one of Malcolm Hotel’s signature restaurants.

This 6 night package starts in Vancouver and ends in Calgary, and is available in reverse:

First Passage to the West Kananaskis Self-Drive New Vacations

There’s something different about this place. It’s so serene, yet so alive! Sprawling across a spectacular mountain landscape, and just a 45-minute drive from Banff, Kananaskis encompasses several protected parks, unspoiled streams and untouched forest. You can hike, mountain bike, ride horses, play golf, go white water rafting, and fish from the shores of the Kananaskis lakes. Or, if you prefer, just simply breathe in the fresh clean mountain air. Whether you’re seeking complete solitude under a sky full of stars, or bursts of excitement, you’ll find it in Kananaskis.

Your home away from home will be the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge. This newly renovated, world-class resort sits snuggled in rugged terrain, and is framed by majestic mountain views. The Lodge boasts several restaurants, from an upscale pub to fine dining. On site, the Kananaskis Nordic Spa rejuvenates your body and your spirit, much like exploring the outdoors does.

This 6 night package starts in Vancouver and ends in Calgary, and is available in reverse:

First Passage to the West Sunshine Village Self-Drive New Vacations

Welcome to the alpine wonderland of Sunshine Village, one of three major resorts located within Banff National Park. Sitting on top of the Continental Divide at an elevation of 7,200 feet, you’ll have uninterrupted views of this awe-inspiring mountain terrain. Known as Canada’s number one hiking area, Sunshine Village offers tranquil nature walks, gondola rides, biking, hot springs and is only minutes from the town of Banff. Six hiking trails wind their way through the untouched wilderness around Sunshine Meadows and Sunshine Village. Surrounded by the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, there are breathtaking views everywhere you turn.

After enjoying your fill of the natural beauty on display, spend the night at Sunshine Mountain Lodge, a one-of-a-kind luxury resort that’s both rustic and refined. Sit by the fire at Chimney Corners, gazing out the enormous bay windows while munching down a hearty lunch. If fine dining is on the menu, the Eagle’s Nest features western delicacies like salmon, AAA Alberta beef and bison. Sunshine Mountain Lodge may feel remote, but it’s the perfect place to be pampered.
