17 JUL 2017: We checked with Rocky Mountaineer to see what the situation was regarding their trains and learned that the trains travelling via Kamloops on First Passage to the West (between Vancouver and Lake Louise/Banff) and Journey through the Clouds (between Vancouver and Jasper) are not affected by the wildfires.

Rocky Mountaineer told us, “The train travelling on the Rainforest to Gold Rush route, between Vancouver and Jasper via Quesnel, is affected as the railway near Quesnel has been closed due to the wildfires. We have put in place alternative travel plans for guests on affected departures to travel by both motor coach and train between Vancouver and Jasper.

“We continue to monitor the wildfire situation closely and, if the railway remains closed, we will continue with alternative travel plans for guests on upcoming departures as well.”

Rocky Mountaineer will continue to update its webpage with the latest information:
