First Passage tothe West At Great Leisure

First Passage to the West At Great Leisure - 7 nights

This Vancouver to Calgary one way eastbound itinerary gives you extra time in Banff and Lake Louise to explore Banff National Park. Included are two nights in a handpicked hotel in Banff, followed by two nights in the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel, overlooking breathtaking Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier.

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 and Lake Louise, through to Calgary. 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).

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

This itinerary does not include Jasper. If you would like to include Jasper, within a similar time frame, consider the 7 night Journey Through The Clouds Great Explorer vacation. This package includes the Rocky Mountaineer train to Jasper from Vancouver and sightseeing by motorcoach from Jasper to Calgary, with overnights in Jasper, Lake Louise and Banff.
