Explore Canada by Train
A vast and diverse country, Canada has some truly spectacular landscapes.
From the breathtaking Canadian Rockies in the west to the prairies and great lakes of the central provinces and the rugged, weather-beaten Atlantic coast, there is truly no better way to see it all than on a Canada train vacation.
When creating your personalized Canada train vacation, you have the choice of two trains in Canada.
Rocky Mountaineer offers world renowned, luxurious train travels by daylight through the wild beauty of Canada’s West and is the best way to experience the majestic Canadian Rockies, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. VIA Rail is another exceptional option, listed among the most renowned trains in the world. This legendary train links Vancouver to Toronto and includes onboard accommodation for overnight journeys. Whether you seek breathtaking views, friendly service or world-class food, VIA Rail has been creating unforgettable moments for decades, for over a hundred thousand passengers every year.
With more than 60 Canada train vacation packages listed on our website, your options include rail journeys in the Canadian Rockies, across Canada, or in Eastern Canada and the Maritimes. Whatever you dream of, it's here waiting for you.
Our Hotel PartnersWe hold ourselves to high standards with everything we do, and that includes your accommodation. Meticulously selected by our team, we have chosen neither the cheapest nor the most expensive hotels in each category, but rather hotels and room types that offer comfortable and charming surroundings that reflect the friendliness our country is famous for.
For our Deluxe and Deluxe Plus grade we use the luxury Fairmont Hotel & Resort chain. Each holds a special place in the history of the nation, such as the Fairmont Banff Springs, which opened in 1888 as Canada’s first grand railway hotel.
