Rocky Mountaineer: Luxurious Train Ride At Your Fingertips

The Rocky Mountaineer passing through Porteau Cove

Dangerously narrow and winding?  The real reason BC’s Sea To Sky Highway is so treacherous (despite its Olympic reconstruction) is its breathtaking view, just a quick, risky peek away. A scenic train trip on the award-winning Rocky Mountaineer® is much safer and allows you to stare (in awe) for as long as you like.

If the view’s your focus, you should avoid BC’s most luxurious train’s dining menu, which will certainly distract.  Created by four renowned chefs (boasting Michelin star experience), the gourmet cuisine rivals the stunning vista.  Ahem, see below:

Pappardelle Pasta with Lamb Sausage
Slow Roasted Alberta Bison
Dessert Platter complete with mini chocolate Rocky Mountaineer
