    Taking the Rocky Mountaineer Routes Quiz

    Taking the Rocky Mountaineer Routes Quiz

    Rocky Mountaineer, the luxury train through the Canadian Rockies, has designed a Mountaineer Routes Selector Quiz to help you figure out the best Rocky Mountaineer route for you, and I’m sure it’s more accurate than most Internet quizzes, especially the one that said I’m a sheep, not a mountain lion.

    Rocky Mountaineer Routes Selector Quiz

    The Rocky Mountaineer Routes Selector Quiz consists of five questions such as "What movies do you like to watch" and "What is no. 1 on your to-do List?" Once you have answered the questions, you will not only know which of the Rocky Mountaineer routes is best for you but what kind of traveler you are.

    When I took the quiz, I found out that I am a "Dream Seeker."

    I am, and I quote, “the definition of a daydreamer.” My fantasy is to venture into untouched landscapes and take the road less travelled. My dream is to see Canada’s most breathtaking and diverse landscapes, and to be humbled by the majesty of it all.

    The best Rocky Mountaineer route for a Dream Seeker is Journey Through the Clouds.

    The Journey Through the Clouds route starts in Jasper, passes Mount Robson – the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies – and takes in the mist of Pyramid Falls (not literally, I hope, because then we’d all get wet). It stops in Kamloops overnight where a Witless Blonde awaits (I’m talking about a beer at the Noble Pig Brew Pub, thanks very much) and finishes up in Vancouver.

    However, the Rocky Mountaineer Route I am actually going to do this summer is not Journey Through the Clouds, but the Rainforest to Gold Rush train trip. According to the Rocky Mountaineer Routes Selector Quiz, it is ideal for the Adventure Bound personality, which really makes me wonder if I am who I think I am. Either that or there’s a bit of the Adventure Bound Traveler in all of us.

    Rainforest to Gold Rush

    I chose the Rainforest to Gold Rush Rocky Mountaineer route so I can, according to the selector description, travel fearlessly into the wild and rugged terrain of Western Canada have a never-ending adventure as the Mountaineer train sails through the ranch lands of the historic Cariboo Gold Rush region and BC’s coastal rainforest.

    It’s obviously a mountain lion trip, not a sheep trip, so I’m sure it will be perfect for a dream-seeking mountain lion like me.
