While it was forced to suspend its entire 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rocky Mountaineer is back and, as you can imagine, is delighted to be able to get back to doing what they do best, which is welcoming guests on its trains.
This month, Rocky Mountaineer will be operating a reduced schedule as it ramps up operations to offer the full schedule in August.
