As part of holiday packages due to the 150th Anniversary of Canada, luxury train trips through Canada's National Parks are being offered. The trip will traverse through Western Canada and the Canadian Rockies.
The promo, aptly called Go Solo promotion for solo travellers, is a scenic train getaway passing throughout British Columbia, Alberta, and the Pacific Northwest, according to Travel + Leisure. Passengers will be given the per person rate of a double occupancy booking. The luxury tourist train is offering 65 packages.
Passengers will be riding on carriages with domed roofs to give them a wider view. They will be seeing rainforests, snow-capped majestic mountains, flower filled meadows, waterfalls, and the country's national parks, which are offering free admissions due to Canada's 150th Anniversary. Some of Canada's parks are Jasper National Park, where they will have magnificent views of the Rockies and Banff National Park.
Some of the packages included are the Journey Through the Clouds Discovery Drive, an eight-day and seven-night trip through views of Whistlers Mountain and Fraser Valley; the Canadian Rockies Highlight package, which passes popular spots like Banff and Lake Louise; and Canadian Rockies Circle, a nine-day journey to view the Rockies up close on the same route which is known for uniting the country 150 years ago.
Another package is the Journey through the Clouds Discovery Drive, an eight-day and seven-night adventure along mountain, lakes, and waterfalls as travellers head through Vancouver, Jasper, Lake, Kamloops and Calgary. This particular offer is available only until 15 May, 2017 but on certain Rocky Mountaineer packages.
The promotion, which qualifies for GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf packages are leaving in April or May of 2017 for five days or longer. Savings differ depending on hotel stay, journey length, excursions additions, and the time of travel. "Canada was also named the top country to visit in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2017."
