First Passage to the West Connector - 6 nights

This Jasper to Vancouver one way westbound itinerary features some of the main sights in the Canadian Rockies, including Jasper, Lake Louise and Banff, with overnights in Jasper and Banff.

This package includes the luxury of 2 days onboard the Rocky Mountaineer train in SilverLeaf or GoldLeaf service from Banff to Vancouver, and sightseeing by motorcoach from Jasper to Banff. This package connects with VIA Rail's Canadian overnight train, which arrives in Jasper from Toronto on Wednesdays*, Saturdays* and some Sundays* (*subject to change). VIA Rail's overnight train takes approximately 17 hours and includes three nights cabin accommodation onboard. This overnight train can be booked through us for the lowest rates.
