Day 6 – This morning we will embark on the Rocky Mountaineer train(Silver Leaf service level) to recline inside a luxury coach and let their captivating storytellers and culinary hosts make your journey remarkable.  The experienced guide will begin the intriguing tale of history as the train roles out of the station.  They will describe what happened right here, in yesteryear, when the railway tracks opened up the Rocky Mountains to Canada’s west coast.  As the vivid colors of the wild pass by, you will get a true sense of wonder for all its natural beauty.  You will journey through the farmlands of the Fraser Valley.  From the fertile greenery, the landscape transforms to the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains.  You’ll see the mighty Fraser River and the raging Whitewater of Hell’s Gate. Undergoing another transformation, the landscape brings you amid scrub bush and dessert. When the train stops and the sun sets arriving in Kamloops you are transported to a comfortable hotel for the night.

Day 7 – Boarding the train your adventure into the heart of the mountains begins in earnest.  Travelling along the South Thompson River you’ll witness historic Craigellachie.  This spot marks where the last spike was driven on the Canadian Pacific Railway line. You’ll gaze in wonder at cascading waterfalls at icy glaciers spilling over the lips of the peaks above on your way to the charming alpine town of Banff.  Homeward bound we disembark from the Rocky Mountaineer changing from transportation by train to transportation by coach.  We make our way back to Red Deer with a brief late evening supper break in Canmore.  Arriving back in Red Deer approximately Midnight.
