Trans Canadian Trains

One of the greatest rail adventures in Canada is the trans-Canada train journey between Toronto and Vancouver. This four-night passage takes place aboard VIA Rail's Canadian, the premier trans Canada rail line, which showcases the country's changing landscapes as it makes its easterly journey. This sleeper train has several levels of service, including Sleeper Plus Class, with its berth and private cabin options. Travelers may relax in their seats or enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the glass-domed sightseeing lounge. As the journey presses on, views of tranquil lakes, dense forests, expanses of grasslands, verdant river valleys and the rugged peaks of the majestic Canadian Rockies envelop the scenery. Other impressive sights along the way include the grand Battle River Valley; Pyramid Falls, which is 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.

Trans Canadian train vacation packages include several stops along the route, giving passengers a chance to stretch their legs and to get a glimpse at the fascinating towns and cities that dot Canada's inland. Select packages extend these stops into overnight stays in places like the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Departing Vancouver, the Canadian first stops in Jasper National Park, a destination shrouded in mountainous glory. The route continues to Alberta's capital city of Edmonton and Saskatoon before arriving in Winnipeg, Manitoba's capital. The train pauses briefly two more times before arriving in Toronto, the largest city in Canada, and a hotspot for culture and commerce. VIA Rail's Canadian also runs from Toronto to Vancouver for those that prefer a route in the opposite direction. With overnight stays in these cosmopolitan cities and inspiring scenery in between, a trans-Canada train vacation is not easily forgotten.

VICTORIA LEEANN STONER
5 stars
“Sleeper cabins with private toilet, food included, non alcoholic beverages included, snacks, and entertainment on the train is fantastic. The shared shower is a little less fantastic, might need and automated sanitization system. The experience was 10/10 would recommend.

ALLEN KOHLER
5 stars
“When you consider the service provided: 1) Book train w/chosen sleeper, 2) Book accommodation at each end of trip, cost of service was on expensive side. Next time we would do our own booking and save the hundreds. Trip was spectacular.

COLLEEN NELSON
5 stars
“All details and connections were perfect. Rocky Mountaineer was great pampering, tours at Banff, Lake Louise, Ice Fields, and enroute to Jasper were fantastic. Three night train on the Canadian was a good experience, as was the business class ride from Toronto to Montreal. Nice hotels and tours in both cities. Great memories if a trip of a lifetime.
