On our tours, you'll also have the oppotunity to Jasper's pristine wilderness before travelling to Banff via the Icefields Parkway - one of the most scenic roads in the world.

When does the Rocky Mountaineer run?

When does the Rocky Mountaineer run?

The Rocky Mountaineer is in operation between April and October with twice-weekly departures.

In late spring, you may still be able to see snow capping the mighty mountains. The temperatures will be cooler with fewer crowds. 
Summer provides longer days and increased chances of spotting wildlife - or enjoying sunsets from whichever beautiful mountain town is your place of rest for the evening. This is the busiest time of year in the Rockies.
Early autumn sees the leaves beginning to turn with vibrant fall foliage visible across the landscape - a spectacular sight.
