Rocky Mountaineer featuring on Seven's Sunrise

Australians can wake up with Rocky Mountaineer this week, as Channel Seven’s hugely popular breakfast program Sunrise broadcasts daily weather updates live from Western Canada.


Sam on Rocky Mountaineer


On a rail adventure that’s on everyone’s must-do list, weather presenter Sam Mac will be sharing his experience onboard the world-renowned Rocky Mountaineer as it travels the Rainforest to Gold Rush route through Western Canada and the Canadian Rockies. Sam will be put right in the middle of the dramatic scenery from the comfort of a custom-made bi-level glass-domed GoldLeaf coach whilst travelling in style to many of the exciting destinations the train visits.


From the iconic city of Vancouver to year-round playground of Whistler, to the postcard-perfect Rocky Mountain townships of Banff and Jasper, Sunrise viewers will experience Sam’s exciting journey. There will be adventures aplenty, featuring breathtaking scenery, legendary wildlife, and delicious Canadian culinary experiences.


“We’re so looking forward to this amazing adventure. This part of the world and the Rocky Mountaineer experience are both at the top of my travel must-do list and I can’t wait to share all of the action with our Sunrise viewers,” said host Sam Mac.


“I've heard the bears are extremely approachable, so I'm super excited to get a few selfies with them and boost my Instagram following. But I refuse to take this opportunity to blatantly plug @sammacinsta, I just feel that would cheapen things!” he added.


Viewers will have even more reason to travel as Rocky Mountaineer launches its 2017 early bird packages, where trips of eight days or more receive added value of up to AUD$1000 per couple to enhance the unique Western Canada and Pacific Northwest adventure.*


Sunrise’s Rocky Mountaineer travel segments will air daily between 6 and 9am from Monday 18 to Friday 22 July.
