Yours truly recently added something into her bucket list – the Rocky Mountaineer…. How could I not when I just learnt of a life changing experience we really should not miss if you are a nature lover and someone who enjoys magnificent views on a holiday trip somewhere…
The Rocky Mountaineer is this life changing experience. It is a luxury rail journey you can take to see the famous Canadian Rockies and the Western Canadian region of British Colombia and Alberta passing through glacial lakes, snow-capped mountains and river canyons. Yes, there is no doubt about it, you can view all of Canada’s best sights by just getting aboard the Rocky Mountaineer….
Canada, you ask…. Yes, Canada is the place to go.. as Canada has been named the Best Travel Destination in 2017 by Lonely Planets. And one of the best ways to enjoy the best of what the Canadian Rockies and the surrounding areas have to offer would be getting aboard the multiple award winning Rocky Mountaineer. The currency exchange is pretty decent compared to USA and Canada is a relatively young country rich in ethnicity due to the number of immigrants that call it home. Cultural diversity is embraced here in this giant adventure playground….
Your incomparable experience will begin with a grand red carpet welcome just before you step aboard the magnificent all-dome fleet…. You will then be mesmerized by the rich, historic storytelling, world-class cuisine, and first-hand views of the vast and untouched wild beauty of the Pacific Northwest, while you make new friends on board to share memorable moments and lasting friendships…
Watch this little video clip to see what I mean, and how I fell in love….
