As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rocky Mountaineer is delaying the start of its 2020 season, which was scheduled to start on 13APR. At this time, routes are suspended through the month of APR.

Resumption dates of Rocky Mountaineer’s operations will be assessed in accordance with travel mandates from global and Canadian governments, says the Canadian-based luxury train company. 

Guests on suspended departures will receive a credit valued at 110% of their original booking to be used for travel by the end of the 2022 season. 

“Along with the rest of the tourism industry, we have been watching the immeasurable global impact of COVID-19," said Steve Sammut, president and chief executive officer of Rocky Mountaineer.

"These are challenging times for the world and, while we were hopeful for the start of this season, we have no choice but to suspend all routes for the time being. The situation is a difficult one, but the delay is in consideration of the wellbeing of our guests, team members, and wider community."
