Wildfire & Air Quality Updates
There are active wildfires in British Columbia and Alberta, however these fires are not currently impacting the rail lines we travel on or the destinations we travel to. All Rocky Mountaineer journeys are scheduled to operate as planned.
Please be aware that travel through some sections of the journey may be slower than usual due to temperature-related speed limitations. Also, visibility of scenery and outdoor air quality may be affected at some points along the routes due to the wildfires. In areas where the air quality is impacted, the health authorities recommend you reduce your exposure by staying indoors where there is air conditioning and avoid strenuous or prolonged activities outside, especially if you have underlying medical conditions. The motor coaches to and from your hotel, and most hotel rooms and restaurants will have air conditioning.
If you experience any of the following symptoms while travelling with us or have any existing conditions, please let your our team know:
- Respiratory conditions (asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer) or heart disease (angina, heart attacks, congestive heart failure, arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat); people with these conditions are more sensitive to air pollution
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain or discomfort
- Sudden onset of cough or irritation of airways
As the wildfires can change, we continue to monitor the situation closely to determine any possible impact on our operations, and ensure the safety and comfort of our guests and team members. If there is a change to your journey, our team will reach out to you directly.
Our team will do everything we can to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable journey for all who travel with us.
