Rocky Mountaineer – Canada

We’ve long been fans of Rocky Mountaineer’s epic, romantic train journeys in Canada. This scenic train through the spectacular Rockies has large windows, so you never miss a moment of the majestic views. From snow-capped mountains and majestic forests, to awe-inspiring rivers and canyons, the Rocky Mountains will be unforgettable.

You travel by day on the train and stop for a night in a town en route. With the best of Canadian cuisine and wonderful journeys like Journey Through The Clouds, this will be a highlight of your honeymoon in Canada.
