Train journey ideal for exploring Rocky Mountains in Canada
Canada is often a country that conjures up images of mountains and wilderness. For many people, heading to the Canadian Rocky Mountains offers the chance to see some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the entire world. Combine this with a train journey and the trip can be a romantic getaway in a stunning and isolated region.
One of the best ways to travel to the Rockies is to first fly to Calgary. From here, travellers can journey to Alberta and visit Jasper, which is a quaint Canadian town in the very heart of this iconic mountain range. Only a few short hours can transport tourists to the top of Whistler Mountain by Tramway, offering stunning views and snow even in midsummer.
Another great train journey is the trip to Columbia Icefield, where visitors will be able to see a 6km long expanse of ice named the Athabasca Glacier. The trip from Jasper offers the option to stop by the Athabasca Falls, and travellers might even get to see wild bears.
Canada is full of wilderness, and there is nowhere more mysterious than the beautiful Rocky Mountains. For those who do not necessarily want to explore these by hiking, climbing or skiing, train sightseeing tours are ideal.
