With such rich railway heritage, it comes as no surprise that one of the easiest and most comfortable ways to enjoy Canada is on the rails. You’re reaching places and seeing views that you just can’t get any other way, travelling on routes only accessible by rail as you travel through history. The railways stretch the whole way across Canada, and if you really fancied it you can traverse the entire country by train. It takes a full five days but it’s an awesome way to do it!


On the east coast of Canada the trains run between the cities and out to the beautiful coastal areas, with great links between each offering a very relaxing way to explore. It certainly makes the journey exciting taking mini adventures between each stop! Eastern Canada’s national railway, VIA Rail, serves all of the eastern provinces offering a great connection between the popular cities of Toronto and Ottawa, or even onto smaller local regions to link up with friends and families.

Experiencing Western Canada by rail is a very special experience, and one we know is on many a bucket list… Riding the Rocky Mountaineer makes it even more special. Step aboard to experience world-class hospitality as you travel through breath-taking scenery and dramatic landscapes. Every detail is meticulously planned on the Rocky Mountaineer – from the warm welcome as you step on board, the gourmet meals served in the dining car, the locally sourced wine and craft beers, to the 5* star service provided by your hosts who go above and beyond all expectations.
