First Passage tothe West Excursion

First Passage to the West Excursion - 4 nights

This Calgary to Vancouver one way westbound itinerary takes you from Calgary to the mountain town of Banff by sightseeing motorcoach, where you will continue your trip of a lifetime by train to Vancouver.

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 Calgary to Banff. Boarding 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 Banff, Vancouver and see Lake Louise, consider the 6 night First Passage to the West Top Highlights vacation.

This itinerary is available in reverse, starting in Vancouver on Sundays, Thursdays and some Mondays.
