Named the tour of a lifetime by National Geographic in 2008, the seven-day, six-night, Royal Canadian Rockies Experience is a train trip like no other. Board the train in Calgary, where you will call the meticulously-restored vintage cars "home" for the next four days. You will be treated to gourmet meals, featuring dishes like roasted corn and wild rice cakes with smoked salmon and horseradish cream, or truffled duck ravioli. During the day, opportunities to explore Banff and Lake Louise, among other options, abound; or instead, you can curl up with a hot cappuccino and watch the train zip past snow-capped mountains, sparkling lakes, and lush green fields.
Rates start at CA $8,200 (US $8,255) per person, and includes all meals and transportation.
