About the tour

Two national parks, endless mountain scenes, and remote landscapes clad in fluffy white snow set the stage for an adventure like no other in Canada this winter. This independent rail vacation offers ten days of exploration split between Alberta, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory. Each location provides a new look at why this time of year is so special in the Great White North. Soak in naturally occurring hot springs surrounded by beautiful winter scenery in Banff and go on a winter wildlife viewing expedition in Jasper. Connecting the two national parks, Icefields Parkway offers breathtaking views from every angle.

From the Canadian Rockies, your journey continues west to Vancouver aboard VIA Rail's Canadian, a beloved overnight train. Spend a day wrapped in big city amenities before heading out into the backcountry once more - this time in the far north. Southern Lake Resort in Whitehorse, Yukon, is an idyllic environment for those that crave a respite from the daily grind. Its remote location is perfect for outdoor adventures, like snowshoeing, and for watching the northern lights during their nighttime performance. Spend this winter surrounded by nature's beauty in Canada.
