Canada by Rail - Starting in Halifax (15 days)
Journey by train in comfort and style from Halifax to Canada’s West Coast. There is something special about taking the train in Canada, for it was the railway that linked this country together. Recreate the great era of train travel as you ride the rails across this beautiful country.
VIA’s Sleeper Plus Class brings you to Toronto where you will spend two nights at the historic Fairmont Royal York, in the heart of the city. From here, enjoy first-class service aboard VIA’s “Canadian”. Watch the rugged Canadian Shield, the untamed wilderness of Northern Ontario, and the vast rolling prairies of Manitoba and Saskatchewan pass by your window. Spend four nights in the heart of the majestic mountains of the Canadian Rockies: first in Jasper and then Banff. Travel the breathtaking Icefields Parkway by motorcoach and, weather permitting, ride the Ice Explorer up the Athabasca Glacier and experience the sensational Columbia Icefield Skywalk. In Banff, board the Rocky Mountaineer – “The Most Spectacular Train Trip in the World”. This two-day narrated rail tour twists through the spiral tunnels of the Rockies and follows the beautiful Fraser River Valley to Vancouver, where you unpack for a three-night stay.
