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.

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.

“We thorough enjoyed out trip to Montreal and Quebec City. The hotels were outstanding; the train ride (with lunch) was more than pleasant! Only downer---one of our bus-tour guides thought himself a stand-up comic. His demeanor got in the way of his information.
