First Passage to the West & Vancouver Island - 9 nights

This Rocky Mountain Holidays exclusive Vancouver to Calgary one way eastbound itinerary includes extra time on the west coast to take in the sights. Included are two nights in beautiful Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, located on the southern end of Vancouver Island. Victoria's Victorian architecture is indicative of the city's British colonial past and is a popular stopover for our guests. Included in Victoria is the must-see designated National Historic Site, Butchart Gardens, which was established in 1904.

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 to Calgary. This itinerary connects with the 7 night round-trip Holland America Alaska cruises we offer.

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