Lakes & Mountains in Canada

Lakes and Mountains

A Canada lakes and mountains rail vacation is nearly synonymous with an itinerary featuring the Canadian Rockies. Expansive lakes, tumbling waterfalls, and towering mountain peaks are the tableau of some of the country's most scenic rail routes and picturesque destinations. Once in the heart of breathtaking scenery, lake and mountain vistas are only amplified.

Immerse yourself in the Canadian Rockies with a visit to Moraine Lake tucked in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, or travel aboard the Banff Gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain for stunning views of the Bow Valley and Banff townsite. The turquoise waters of Lake Louise, surrounded by mountain peaks and the Victoria Glacier looming behind it, are a sight to behold. The deep blue waters of Maligne Lake with Spirit Island at its center highlight many sightseeing tours in Jasper.

While Western Canada is home to some of the most famous lakes and mountains in Canada, the East has its share of notable peaks and valleys, such as Quebec's Laurentian Mountains. Situated north of Montreal, this destination is home to freshwater lakes and scenic mountain villages. Whether your vacation takes you to the Canadian Rockies, Eastern Canada, or on a coast to coast adventure, there is no shortage of lakes and mountains rail vacations in Canada.

MS C BENNETT
5 stars
“I had a marvelous time on my first Vacations by Rail! I had never taken an overnight train trip before and found the experience very relaxing. The food was exceptional as was the kind, knowledgeable and friendly staff. The bus portion of the trip was also exceptional. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The bus drivers were above excellent,especially going up into the mountains on curved roads! It was a great experience overall and I look forward to booking another trip in the near future!

“Beautiful train ride on the Rocky Mountaineer and the Canadian Rail system. As a passenger train, we were low on the priority list, so had to give way to freight trains. But it was worth it, as it provided an opportunity to take in more of the scenery and watch the passing trains! Service was excellent and the food was great. Breakfast and lunch included on the Rocky Mountaineer. Due to traffic and frequent pull overs, we were 2 & 1/2 hr late getting into our town. The chef threw together a great dinner for us, which was a great treat!

“Service was great. Three folks taking care of our car were really good. Food was pretty good. Good mix of tour guide" and downtime. Understand the need for the very early morning start times, but even with that, it would have been nice to arrive at the station in the evening at an earlier time."
