Day 1-Seattle-Vancouver, BC-Rail Canada

Our mountain holiday begins as we head north of the border by deluxe motorcoach to Vancouver, BC. Sit back and relax as your Tour Director shows you the sights along the way. We will enjoy a wonderful dinner before we start our adventure on VIA Rail. First-class treatment awaits as our Service Manager welcomes you aboard. After settling in, you may wish to visit the Glass Dome Car to watch the sparkling Vancouver skyline as we journey north. Nothing could be finer! (D)

Day 2-Canadian Rockies-Jasper, Alberta-Chateau Lake Louise

Good Morning! Awaken to freshly brewed coffee and the morning paper. When you look out the window, you will see the rolling hills surrounding the ranching community of Kamloops, BC. A hearty breakfast awaits onboard. The winter scenery is incredible as we wind our way along the shores of the mighty ice choked Thompson River and past Mt. Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies. In the mid-morning, we will arrive in the snowy little mountain town of Jasper, Alberta. All aboard our motorcoach as we sightsee on the way to Lake Louise, our home away from home for the 2 nights. (B)


You'll be awed by the majestic peaks and other incredible winter scenery surrounding Chateau Lake Louise.
