Discover the Majestic Beauty of Canada: A Memorable Train Journey Across the Country

For many people, traveling across Canada by train is a dream come true. The journey itself is as spectacular as the scenery it carries you through.

From soaring mountain peaks to pristine lakes and endless prairies, VIA Rail packages can take you on an unforgettable journey through the heart of this mighty land. With cozy accommodations, glass-domed viewing cars and gourmet meals prepared by a chef onboard, you can sit back, relax and let your travels captivate you.

Whether you want to see the length of this soaring land from coast to coast on the ‘The Canadian’ or explore Eastern Canada with the ‘Ocean’ route, there is a perfect trip for you. The longer ‘Canadian Trip of a Lifetime’ route is a must-see, spanning from Toronto to Vancouver and taking in the breathtaking beauty of Western Canada, while the ‘Canadian Adventurer’ trip is shorter but still offers a great way to experience this vast country.

A VIA Rail journey is the ultimate escape from the stress of everyday life. Enjoy the sights of Canada from the comfort of your cabin or lounge car, unwind with a glass of wine and catch up on a book while you take in the changing landscapes. Then tuck yourself into your cozy bunk or double bed and drift off to sleep, waking up to hot coffee and fresh-baked bread in the dining car.

The service car is the ideal place to mingle with fellow passengers and share stories, or simply sit back and watch the world go by. Sit down for a three-course meal that is made to order in the onboard dining car by an onboard chef, or choose from an assortment of snacks and beverages as you settle in to your comfortable seat. Depending on your class, some options may be restricted or unavailable to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies.

VIA Rail trains also feature onboard entertainment and activities during peak season, including wine tastings, children’s programs and more. With Wi-Fi onboard most routes, you can stream movies and shows or listen to your favorite music in your private cabin. You can also find plenty to do while you’re at your destination, with activities like city walking tours and sightseeing storied lighthouses available in many cities.

VIA Rail has perfected the art of combining the thrill of a train vacation with the convenience and comfort of an overnight train. On overnight trips, you can stretch out in a private sleeper cabin or lounge comfortably in a seat as the changing landscapes of Canada roll by your window. When you are ready to head back on the train, a hot breakfast awaits in the dining car and new scenery opens up to you once again.
