Okanagan Valley's Rocky Mountaineer Wine Train

Curious about exploring British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, but don’t know where to begin? The Rocky Mountaineer (North America’s largest privately owned passenger train) is offering a new tour that combines its first-class “ GoldLeaf” service with a multi-day stopover in the Okanagan wine region. Departing from Vancouver, luxurious, glass-domed trains offer passengers spectacular views of the Canadian Rockies, where the scenery ranges from the forests of Fraser Canyon to expansive ranchlands, and arid desert landscapes. For lunch, chefs introduce your palate to the Okanagan with a regionally sourced menu accompanied by local wines. During a three-day stopover, a private motor coach transports guests to a selection of wineries, beginning with the Grey Monk Estate Winery, whose crisp, stainless steel Pinot Gris was the first variety of its kind in Canada.Additional wineries include Summerhill, Sumac Ridge, Hillside, NKMip Winery, Tinhorn Creek and Mission Hill Winery. Wine-paired lunches and dinners are offered each day, with evening accommodations at Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort. A final train ride takes you to the stunning Fairmont Banff Springs, where guests conclude their tour. Here, GoldLeaf guests receive highly personalized service with private check-in, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and a wine-paired dinner. A complimentary round of golf at the base of the Rocky Mountains or an awe-inspiring helicopter excursion through Banff es the Rocky Mountain tour one you will never forge. Prices start at $6,899/per person.
