How well do you know Rocky Mountaineer?

Travel Weekly

Everyone knows a trip on Rocky Mountaineer is one of the most stunning rail journeys on the planet.

Just look at that glass-domed carriage!

But what else does it offer?

Well, plenty, in fact.

There are over 65 different packages across four different routes, to be exact.

If you’re panicking, lovely agents, don’t worry.

We’ve got you covered, with this handy explainer that will tell you everything Rocky Mountaineer has to offer! With photos, obviously.

We’ll start with the obvious – because no standard train journey includes a roof made out of glass, but this one does.

You can stargaze or watch the clouds without having to crane your neck out the window. Joy!

Don’t pretend your jaw didn’t drop when you saw this picture.

Not to mention the stunning views.

The journey onboard Rocky Mountaineer showcases stunning lakes, turquoise rivers, snowy mountains, and local wildlife at every turn.

It is Canada, after all. And the whole of Canada is basically a postcard picture waiting to be taken.

Seriously.

This is just an average view for a Rocky Mountaineer passenger.

And having that as your window view whilst eating world-class, delicious food? Now that’s luxury.

The menus are inspired by the bounty of passing regions, highlighting fresh, local ingredients – which your clients (and you) will love.

Rocky Mountaineer chefs are award-winning, serving up truly spectacular food.

Best of all, it’s all included in the price.

Think freshly baked butter croissants for breakfast, slow roasted Alberta Ranchlands pork loin for lunch and a gourmet multi-course dinner, with dessert to die for.

And what’s amazing food without amazing service to match?

The onboard hosts cater to guests’ every need, from offering complimentary beverages to engaging storytelling along the way.

Stunning scenery, drool-worthy food and a bit of onboard storytelling about said scenery? Yes. Please.

Rocky Mountaineer is also the perfect social environment, if you can tear your eyes away from the view, that is.

Raise a glass with your fellow passengers at the start of the journey and walk away with memories and friends to last a lifetime.

How do we know you’ll create a swag of memories?

Because not only is the train journey incredible, there are a ton of featured tours and excursions for you to do as well.

There’s whale watching, helicopter tours, visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, gondola rides to the top of the world and exploring glaciers. Just to name a few.

Did we mention you can also combine Rocky Mountaineer with an Alaska cruise package?

Why not hop off the train and straight onto one of Holland America Line’s luxurious vessels for the ultimate trip.

In fact, 40 per cent of Aussie guests pair their Rocky Mountaineer trip with an Alaska cruise and 60 per cent of Aussie Rocky Mountaineer guests have travelled on a cruise in the past five years.

Heads up agents! Any cruising clients are bound to be interested in this winning combination.

No wonder 90 per cent of past Rocky Mountaineer guests rate this experience as Excellent or Very Good.

But the best bit for agents? Rocky Mountaineer Vacation Consultants are always there when you need them (seriously, you can call toll-free at 1-800-821-531) and are even able to customise every package to perfectly suit your client.

Keep up to date with current promotions and access the Rocky Moutaineer page here.

Do it now, you don’t want to miss this one.

We’ll take all the Rocky Mountaineer trips, thanks.
