RAINFOREST TO GOLD RUSH ROUTE TRAIN DAY 1 VANCOUVER WHISTLER Beginning at the foot of the Coast Mountains, overlooking the stunning city of Vancouver, British Columbia, you’ll roll along the scenic fjord of Howe Sound. Prepare to be amazed as you make your way past massive cliffs, canyons, and stunning bridges. You’ll then arrive in world-famous Whistler, the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games host city. There, you’ll explore the picturesque village and enjoy a relaxing stay at one of Whistler’s hotels. TRAIN DAY 2 WHISTLER QUESNEL The next day, you’ll depart from wonderful Whistler and travel up the Pemberton Valley, as you glide beside gorgeous Anderson and Seton Lakes. Turning north and west, the landscape becomes more rugged. More wild. Sheer cliffs on one side, milky-green lakes on the other. You’ll emerge into the arid ranchland near Quesnel, Canada’s gold rush capital. The gold rush may be over, but there are still many treasures to be found in this historic region. TRAIN DAY 3 QUESNEL JASPER After an overnight hotel stay in Quesnel, you’ll head north again. Wide-eyed, you’ll experience mountainous terrain, untouched lakes, and incredible waterfalls. You’ll gradually gain altitude and enter the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The awesome sight of Mount Robson, the range’s highest peak, will greet you as you wind your way to the alluring alpine town of Jasper, Alberta. Every step of the way, your emotions will follow the extremes of the journey, from silent awe to uncontained elation. You can also choose to travel westbound, journeying from Jasper to Vancouver. 57
