No, it's not Rocky anything other than the fabulous train. Canada's Rocky Mountaineer is one of the world's great trains that offers one of the world's great train rides. It choofs across parts of Canada that are wild, wonderful, craggy, gentle, awesome, interesting . . . still looking for more superlatives. I have had the privilege of riding these rails and not only did I see a stunning part of the world I ate Canadian produce prepared by Michelin-trained chefs - can't get much better than that.
If you think this blog is mostly about food, perhaps you are right!
A trip on the Rocky Mountaineer is pretty special as it only travels during the day. You can include the train trip with an independent holiday, get on and off, and extend the dream with a cruise afterwards - rail & cruise - just add water!
After being filled to the emotional brim with the grandeur of the majestic Canadian Rockies go cruising.
On the train enjoy being nurtured by the staff, spoilt by the chef and maybe you'll meet the CEO onboard serving drinks!
During the season, all corporate staff do their time onboard - so if you meet a bloke called Randy who's swerving around the carriage - he's the president and CEO of the company. (It's OK, you don't have to tip him.)
