Vancouver to Jasper Train Trips
The comfortable way to see Canada's most spectacular vistas

You can take the legendary Rocky Mountaineer train from Vancouver to Jasper and enjoy world-class dining and hospitality as the train carves through the steep alpine passes, wildflower meadows and deep valleys.
Or you can take the Skeena train between Jasper and Prince Rupert. This trip takes you through the lush forests, shimmering lakes and tiny sawmill towns of Northern British Columbia.
No matter which route you choose, you'll be cozy on the train as the scenery slides past your window.
