First Passage tothe West At Great Leisure

First Passage to the West At Great Leisure - 7 nights

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

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, through to Lake Louise and 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).

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

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 from Jasper to Vancouver and sightseeing by motorcoach from Calgary to Jasper, with overnights in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.
