You Can Now Travel Through The Canadian Rockies In A Glass Train

You Can Now Travel Through The Canadian Rockies In A Glass Train

Picture yourself travelling through the jaw-dropping mountain ranges of the Canadian Rockies. Dreamy, right? Now imagine doing it on a train made out of glass.

It sounds like something lifted out of fantasy - but with Canadian Rail Tour Company Rocky Mountaineer, you can do just that.

The Rockies' craggy ranges stretch from British Columbia and Alberta all the way to New Mexico. Dotted with alpine lakes and capped with ice, they've been a source of wonder to travellers and mountaineers for centuries.

Available to book through Rocky Mountaineer's GoldLeaf Service, the glass-domed train excursions offer travellers stunning panoramic views of world-class scenery.

Currently, the glass trains are bookable on two popular routes. Holidaymakers can choose from a two-day adventure from Vancouver to Lake Louise or Banff, or a two-day trip from Vancouver to Jasper.

The trains themselves are two-tiered. Up top, the glass-crowned coaches are kitted out with spacious seats to get comfy in as you watch the Rockies unfold all around you. Down below, elegantly plated meals are served in a swish dining area.
