The Rocky Mountaineer train offers a luxury railroad trip through western Canada from Vancouver to Banff Lake Louise, traveling by daylight to see the scenery.
The Canadian Rockies, west of Calgary, offer many things to do and see, such as the Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise, and National Parks named Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, and Yolo. See the Luxton Museum of the Plains Indian, eat buffalo steak at the Grizzly House Restaurant, and enjoy a scenic vista with a gondola ride up Sulphur Mountain.
The annual January Brackendale Eagle Festival in British Columbia can include a rafting trip through one of the densest clusters of bald eagles on Earth. Raft down the Squamish River to see the eagles, perched in trees as they gorge on chum and coho salmon that swim up the river to spawn and die.
