We Need Your Help! Take the Travel Interest Survey for the Canadian Rockies.

As we survey interested travelers about where they might like to go next, the Canadian Rockies is a popular choice in our results.

There are two Canadian Rockies trips that we are exploring, and they are considerably different in price. In order to select the best tour for those who wish to go, we have prepared a comparison below.

In summary, the Canadian Rockies featuring Rocky Mountaineer includes the iconic 2-day train ride that is often depicted in commercials. It also includes an overnight stay at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The remainder of the trip is by bus. The Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park trip does NOT include the train. It includes a tour of Glacier National Park from a historic Jammer Car. It also does not include the hotel stay at the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise; however, you will have lunch overlooking the lake and take a gondola ride. These trips are otherwise quite similar. Please note the cost difference and decide which trip and price are best for you!
