Trans Canada by Rail
One of the greatest trips across Canada is the trans Canada train journey between Toronto and Vancouver. The four-night passage aboard VIA Rail’s Canadian, the premier trans Canada railroad, showcases the country’s changing landscapes consisting of tranquil lakes, dense forests, expanses of grasslands, verdant river valleys, and the majestic Canadian Rockies.
Impressive sights along your route include Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital and a rest stop for the train; the grand Battle River Valley; Alberta’s capital city of Edmonton; Jasper National Park; Pyramid Falls, so close to the train tracks it feels as though you can reach out and touch it; and, Mt. Robson, the tallest peak of the Canadian Rockies, visible on a clear day from your train car.
Travel the trans Canada route with city stays on each end in Toronto and Vancouver, or enjoy visits in one more popular destinations within the Canadian Rockies during your journey.
