For a Holiday Family Travel Treat, Consider a Trip on Canada's "Winter Wonderland Express"
A Rocky Mountaineer winter rail journey may be just the ticket for families looking to create an unforgettable holiday family memory. This is a travel adventure for adults and youngsters alike, a delightful family journey of discovery through a winter wonderland and, who knows, Santa Claus might just be around the next corner.
The two-day Rocky Mountaineer trip travels through a snow-covered landscape of frozen lakes, towering mountain peaks, and snow-dusted Christmas trees between Vancouver, British Columbia, and the Rocky Mountain resort town of Banff, Alberta. Onboard guests and staff embrace the holiday spirit and enjoy all the extra value and festive touches provided. A dedicated specialty car and children's entertainer keep the kids occupied for hours with decoration making, Christmas carols, fort building, and games galore, while parents relax and enjoy the magical winter scenery. Adults preferring a little more action need only wander to the specialty club car to enjoy live jazz and entertainment while sipping mulled wine or eggnog. The excitement peaks when the Rocky Mountaineer "Winter Wonderland Express" comes across Santa's broken down sleigh, and he is welcomed aboard carrying his bulging sack filled with gifts for all.
This winter journey through the breathtaking scenery of Canada's West and the Canadian Rockies is an ideal setting in which families can reconnect and enjoy a unique Christmas holiday together. The Two-Day Winter Rail Journey which departs on December 19 and 27 eastbound, and December 21 and 29 westbound is priced from $419 US per person (based on double occupancy) and $199 US per child. In addition to the two-day train trip, nine vacation packages ranging from four to ten days, that visit some of highlights of the Canadian Rockies such as Lake Louise and Jasper, are also available.
