Luggage handling

Please refer to your final travel documents, sent 30 days prior to your departure, for specific details on luggage handling in each destination. 

  • If you booked your accommodation through Rocky Mountaineer: your luggage handling is included to and from your hotel in all destinations that are a part of your package.
  • If you did not book your accommodation through Rocky Mountaineer: your luggage must be brought to your train transfer location, as outlined in your final travel documents, and will be available for collection upon arrival at your final train transfer location. Please refer to your final travel documents for locations and timing.

If you are travelling on our First Passage to the West or Journey through the Clouds rail routes and will be travelling with additional pieces of checked luggage that you will not require while staying overnight in Kamloops, as an added convenience, we would be happy to direct extra checked luggage pieces straight through to your final location at the end of day two of your journey. Note, this luggage will not be accessible until you complete your train journey so, please pack accordingly. This service is optional and can be arranged while checking-in at one of our Guest Centres.
