Life is short and every man should have a bucket list of adventures he’d like to experience. Now that the holidays are over, we can get back to sharing our bucket list with you and hopefully give you some ideas on what to add to your bucket list.
Travelling with the Rocky Mountaineer leads to a constant flow of superlatives. Travel journalists qualify it as ‘the best train experience in the world’ and recommend it as ‘one of the things you have to do before you die’. Such comments are bound to arouse one’s curiosity.
One of the routes of the Canadian organization Rocky Mountaineer, travels along a sizeable section of the Fraser River, which prompted the Travelling-along-Rivers team to board the Rocky Mountaineer in Calgary and make the trip to Vancouver. After travelling for two days at Gold Leaf level, the team knew for certain that the above-mentioned exemplary reviews are completely without exaggeration.
All Rocky Mountaineer trains travel by daylight so that travellers do not have to miss any of the spectacular views.
The two-day Calgary to Vancouver journey includes a stay at a hotel in either Kamloops or Quesnel.
The service on Rocky Mountaineer trains is widely acclaimed, but the Gold Leaf service is of an unparalleled high quality, whereby breakfast and lunch are served in the restaurant on the ground floor, and travellers can choose from a seemingly unlimited supply of drinks and culinary snacks in the panoramic section on the first floor.
