EBDE/EBDW – 4 Nights / 5 Days

Overview

The First Passage to the West Excursion, our most popular short package, includes two days on the Rocky Mountaineer, one night in Banff National Park, a tour of Banff, helicopter flightseeing and a night in Calgary.

This package, like all Rocky Mountaineer packages can be customized with additional nights in the Rockies, a rental car for exploring Banff and Lake Louise which is only 35 miles from Banff and airport transfers in Calgary.
