Excitedly planning a Christmas Holiday in the Canadian Rockies (can you say "snow"?).
One trip is from Vancouver to Kamloops via Rocky Mountaineer, also stays in Banff and Calgary. No overnight aboard the train.
The second choice is Vancouver to Jasper riding on VIA Rail, includes overnight aboard train. This package includes stays in Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff, and Calgary. (Cost about $350 more each.)
The train ride portion of the week's vacation is the most important to us. Would love to hear from anyone who has taken one or both and what you think the advantages of each would be??
Thanking you in advance. Holly
