Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Chicago-based specialty travel company Vacations By Rail offers two new train vacations through the Canadian Rockies aboard the renowned Rocky Mountaineer, traveling between the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, in time for the summer vacation season.
Rocky Mountaineer & Alaska By Land and Sea is a 16-day rail-cruise adventure beginning in the Olympic city of Calgary and traveling through the Canadian Rockies by train to the coastal city of Vancouver for a short city stay. Vacationers then board their seven-day Alaska cruise with ports of call in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Glacier Bay. The adventure continues on land upon arrival in Anchorage as travelers journey by train to Denali National Park, home to the famed Mt. McKinley and copious wildlife, and end their vacation in Fairbanks. Travel is available in RedLeaf Service with an inside cabin aboard the ship and stays in Superior hotels as well as SilverLeaf Service and GoldLeaf Service including an outside cruise ship cabin and deluxe hotel stays. 2013 departures are available May 21, June 18, July 16, and August 13 and 27. Prices start at $3,579 (land-only, per person based on double occupancy) plus port taxes.
“This new vacation puts a refreshing spin on our classic rail-cruise vacation,” said Todd Powell, President of Vacations By Rail.
Shoppers and train buffs alike will enjoy Vacations By Rail’s new Edmonton Mall & Rocky Mountaineer vacation, an eight-day package that begins in the metropolis of Edmonton, home to the famous West Edmonton Mall as numerous shops, boutiques, and cultural and educational attractions. After taking advantage of Alberta’s absence of sales tax—a shopper’s dream!—travelers transfer by coach to Jasper for a two-night stay in this popular National Park. The journey concludes with a stunning two-day all-daylight rail journey past mountain peaks and through lush river valleys aboard the Rocky Mountaineer. 2013 departures are available May 26, June 2, 13, and 30, July 11, and August 8 and 22. Vacations are available in RedLeaf Service and SilverLeaf Service with superior hotels and GoldLeaf Service with deluxe hotels. Prices start at $1,935 land-only, per person based on double occupancy.
“Vacations By Rail is proud to design and develop two new unique train vacations that enhance our Canada product line, incorporating one of the most amazing train journeys in the world, the Rocky Mountaineer, with complementary travel components and must-see destinations,” said Powell.
The Rocky Mountaineer is Canada’s iconic all-daylight train traveling four routes through the Canadian Rockies. Vacationers can select from three classes of service: RedLeaf Service including a comfortable seat beside a large picture window and boxed meal service at the seat; SilverLeaf Service featuring travel in a single-level dome car and hot meal service at the seat; and GoldLeaf Service including travel aboard a bi-level dome coach featuring panoramic views of the passing scenery from the top level and gourmet meals served in a private dining room on the bottom level.
