Rail Cruise in Canada
Embark on a Canada rail and cruise vacation and experience the best of both of both worlds: a rail vacation aboard one of Canada’s premier trains and a scenic and relaxing Alaska cruise.
Your train to cruise holiday begins with a Canada rail trip. Select the train experience you wish to have—an overnight rail journey or all-daylight train adventure—as the cornerstone of your package. You may wish to make the four night trip across five provinces from Toronto to Vancouver aboard VIA Rail’s Canadian, or spend time exclusively in the Canadian Rockies exploring the region’s National Parks and charming alpine hamlets with a one night journey from Jasper National Park to Vancouver aboard the Canadian. Alternately, you may elect to slow your pace and savor a two day all-daylight journey aboard the acclaimed Rocky Mountaineer as you travel through spectacular Canadian Rockies scenery from Banff to Vancouver.
Once in the coastal city of Vancouver, considered the “Gateway to Alaska,” embark on your cruise to must-see sights and destinations including the Tracy Arm fjord, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay National Park and Ketchikan.
