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 booked an Alaskan vacation through Vacations By Rail. Everything from customizing the itinerary, booking the vacation and the vacation itself went so smoothly. We were so impressed with the trains and their staff. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. The trains were comfortable and the meals very good. It was absolutely amazing to be in the glass dome cars and watch the scenery and wildlife. Our vacation was so stress free as everything was so organized. We never had to worry about our luggage. It was always where it was supposed to be! We were spoiled and I want to book all future vacations through Vacations by Rail and travel by train!! We cannot say enough good things.
