Trans Canada by Train

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.

Canadian Snow Train with Jasper
21 Mar 2020
CES
5 stars
“The Canadian Snow Train with three nights in Jasper was just spectacular! We always wanted to take a train across Canada and this one filled the bill. This trip takes you through five Canadian Provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. I highly recommend doing this trip in winter because the snow just makes everything so beautiful and you are sitting on the train just taking it all in, not even wearing a coat! The three nights in Jasper was also wonderful and yes, you will need a coat but not as many layers as you might think. Yes, it is cold but it is a dry cold and not the damp coldness we have in the east.

“Vacationsbyrail was great! When they didn't have the answer they found it and got back to us in a timely Manner. Very helpful. Trip was great. Wish the route accommodated seeing more of the Rockies ( went thru much of them at night) but I guess that's another trip where you stay in the national Parks and travel on the train by day. This trip was about riding the train and sleeping on it so we were super happy with it all!
