Rail & Cruise in Canada
Embark on a Canada rail and cruise vacation and experience the
best of both worlds: a rail vacation aboard one of Canada's premier
trains and a scenic cruise through the pristine waters in and
around Canada. These self-guided cruise and train trips highlight
destinations throughout Eastern Canada and Western Canada - and
select tours connect cities in both regions.
Your train to cruise holiday begins with a Canada train tour.
Select the train experience you wish to have - an overnight rail
journey, an all-daylight train adventure or a short jaunt on a
regional train - 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 to travel aboard a VIA Rail
Corridor Service train for a short ride between cities. Tours that
visit cities in the east may include time in Quebec City and
Montreal before setting out on a cruise along the St. Lawrence
River to Toronto.
A vacation featuring the Canadian Rockies
and an Alaska cruise is truly
spectacular. Spend time exploring the region's national parks and
charming alpine hamlets, with stays in Jasper, Banff and Lake
Louise, before boarding VIA Rail's Canadian to Vancouver. You may
also elect to slow your pace and savor an all-daylight journey
aboard the acclaimed Rocky Mountaineer as you travel
through spectacular Rocky Mountain scenery from Banff to Vancouver.
Once in the coastal city of Vancouver, considered the "Gateway to
Alaska," embark on a seaside adventure aboard a luxurious Holland
America cruise ship. Enjoy top-notch amenities while your ship
ventures to must-see sights and incredible destinations, including
the Tracy Arm fjord, Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay National Park and
Ketchikan. Some of the world's most astounding natural beauty lies
ahead when you embark on a rail and cruise vacation in Canada.
