First Passage tothe West Excursion

First Passage to the West Excursion - 4 nights

This Vancouver to Calgary one way eastbound itinerary takes you to the mountain town of Banff by train, where you will continue your sightseeing journey by motorcoach to Calgary.

This package includes the luxury of 2 days onboard the Rocky Mountaineer train in SilverLeaf or GoldLeaf service from Vancouver to Banff, and sightseeing by motorcoach from Banff. Disembarking the train in Banff, rather than Lake Louise, gives you additional time onboard to enjoy the scenery of Banff National Park, which includes Morant's Curve (pictured above). If you would like to spend more time in Vancouver, Banff and see Lake Louise, consider the 6 night First Passage to the West Top Highlights vacation.

This itinerary is available in reverse, starting in Calgary on Mondays, Fridays and some Tuesdays.
