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.
