Canada Winter Vacations

Canada Winter Train Tours

The season the Great White North is best known for is winter - a time of magical scenery and joyous holidays. Visiting Canada in winter means plenty of snow, of course, but also access to some of the world's best cold-weather activities that are sure to warm the soul and lead to life-long memories.

The Canadian Rockies are the quintessential winter wonderland, and Canada winter vacation packages to these resort towns feature a classic overnight rail adventure, superb hotel stays, and incredible seasonal activities. Here, visitors have access to some of the most impressive skiing in the world, as well as to frozen waterfalls, glaciers, ice-covered lakes, and fantastic wildlife adventures. The Rockies are also a perfect place to watch the colorful aurora borealis overtake the winter sky. Enjoy cold-weather train trips on the other side of the country, too, to places like Quebec City and Montreal on VIA Rail's Corridor Service. Each of these cities boasts its own charms that are complemented by holiday decorations and a soft layer of snow. Visiting these cities around Christmas adds another layer to the ambiance, thanks to traditional Christmas markets.

For travelers that hope to get a look at the winter wonderland without stepping foot in the snow, riding the Canada snow train is a perfect compromise. VIA Rail's Canadian departs from Vancouver and makes a 2,775-mile journey inland to Toronto. First-class accommodations and wondrous scenes of snow-capped mountains, emerald-hued evergreens against the white snow, and beautiful cities aglow in festive cheer are just some things to anticipate.

Things to do in Canada in winter range from visiting hotels constructed of snow and ice to celebrating the season at the Québec Winter Carnival, snowshoeing, swimming in hot springs, and ice skating out in the open on frozen lakes. There are no limits to a Canada winter rail vacation.

Winter in the Rockies

“This was a great trip; the hotels were beautiful and we loved the overnight train! Just the right amount of coordination by Vacations by Rail so that our time was our own but all of the transportation details were arranged conveniently and expertly. This was our second Vacations By Rail trip, and we will definitely take more of them as we are big train travel fans.

“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.

Montreal & Quebec City by Rail

JAMES GREGORY SKILES
5 stars
“Hotel accommodations and motor coach tours were excellent. The train trip between Montreal and Quebec City was nothing special, even in business class. Boring scenery, which you can’t control. We loved our trip. All of your reps before the trip were exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful.
