Explore a little further into British Columbia along the Robson Valley with the snow capped Cariboo Mountains on one side, the majestic Rocky Mountains on the other as you make your way to the quaint McBride Train Station for your train journey back to Jasper National Park. Highlights include a stop at Mount Robson, the Highest Peak in the Canadian Rockies!

Unfortunately, we are unable to book any Dome Car Seating with VIA Rail.

Please bring a piece of Government Issued ID as VIA Rail requires ID for each passenger. You will not need a train ticket as our driver/guide will have everything prepared for you and your group. 

We recommend bringing a camera, water, snacks and lunch as the train no longer supplies their snack cart as per COVID-19. McBride Station typically has a small food canteen but selection may be limited during this time.  

Dress comfortably! Most of this tour will be on a train and bus with a little bit of walking around at Mount Robson. 

Lunch is not provided on this tour, please bring enough lunch, snacks and drinks to last the 6 hours.

In a typical summer season there is a café in the Jasper Station and a café at Mount Robson that have not confirmed  seasonal hours in Summer 2022.

There are cafes in McBride that you could get a takeaway lunch from.
