STEP 3 - SEASON SPRING SUMMER AUTUMN APRIL | MAY JUNE | JULY | AUGUST SEPTEMBER | OCTOBER As winter relinquishes its hold and the wilderness comes to life, this is one of the best times to get onboard Rocky Mountaineer. Lakes, streams, and waterfalls swell. Bears lumber out of hibernation. Birds begin nesting. Flower blooms fill fields with vibrant colours. And best of all, the crowds of summer tourists have yet to arrive. Warm weather urges vegetation to flourish. Newborn animals emerge under their parents’ watchful eyes. The days grow longer. The rainforest is at its most lush and the arid desert canyons have an especially rugged beauty during June, July, and August. The forests create a vibrant display of red, orange, and gold, mixed with evergreen. Snow frosts the mountain peaks. The animals forage through the wilderness to prepare for the coming winter. The crowds of summer tourists are waning in October.
