The sights aren’t the only thing that change during the two to five days onboard the train—temperatures can fluctuate quite a bit, depending on the season. There is also an outdoor viewing platform, a great spot to take some photos, which can be quite windy or extremely warm, so it’s always good to be prepared. 

3. Notebook and Pen

The hosts on board are full of stories about the passing regions. With so many interesting anecdotes being shared each day, jotting down a favourite tidbit is a great way to remember the journey and some fun trivia about Canada for when you get home. Guests also mingle together for the duration of the trip, meaning guests often make new friends from all corners of the globe. Make sure to get contact information before you leave the train. 

4. Your Appetite

A journey on Rocky Mountaineer is just as much about the culinary adventure as it is about the stunning scenery and award-winning service. Rocky Mountaineer’s executive chefs have created a menu inspired by the bounty of the passing regions, highlighting ingredients such as Pacific salmon and prime Alberta beef. The three-course meals are elevated with snacks and drinks, meaning no one leaves the train hungry.
