Rocky Mountaineer anticipates surge in luxury rail travel interest

Canadian rail company extends Peaks & Perks offer as Murder on the Orient Express launches in the UK
Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express hits UK cinemas this week, and Rocky Mountaineer is anticipating a surge in interest for luxury rail travel by extending its popular Peaks & Perks offer. Previously available until 27 October, Rocky Mountaineer has decided to lengthen the availability of its offer until 22 December so travellers enticed by the on-screen splendour of luxury rail journeys can enjoy up to £480 in added value per couple.

This credit can be applied to 2018 GoldLeaf or SilverLeaf service holidays with a duration of eight days (seven nights) or more, and gives guests the opportunity to book a variety of add-ons, including extra hotel nights, meals, activities, tours and even a timeless Alaskan Cruise as part of Rocky Mountaineer’s Rail and Cruise packages.  

Whilst the level of onboard luxury and hospitality on a Rocky Mountaineer holiday is reminiscent of the golden age of rail travel, it is far from outdated: the locomotive’s glass-domed GoldLeaf carriages are made of glass allowing a nearly 360° views of the surrounding nature; interiors include plush heated reclining seats; and each rail car has its own team of chefs delivering sumptuous meals inspired by dishes and ingredients from Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.  

The world-renowned train’s new First Passage to the West Culinary Exploration Package, from Vancouver to Calgary, is just one example of the unique holidays included this offer. A 10 day / 9 night voyage, priced from £2,990 per guest, includes a foodie themed itinerary incorporating an enchanting walking tour of Granville Island or Chinatown, an Icefields Parkway tour and even a six-course paired tasting menu at the luxury Eden restaurant at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff.
