CANADIAN AFFAIR - THE TRAVEL EXPERTS

Canada Rail Tours

Incredible routes only accessible by rail

Travel by train and you can watch the views, not the roads. Rocky Mountaineer is so luxurious with amazing hosts, and you can’t see those parts of the Rockies any other way! VIA Rail is great for city hopping or doing an epic journey from east to west

Choosing the right rail holiday

The differences between VIA and Rocky Mountaineer train journeys

seeing the Rockies

Seeing the Rockies

If you’ve heard of an iconic, luxury rail journey through the Rockies, you’ll likely be thinking of Rocky Mountaineer. These opulent trains offer daylight journeys through the Rockies and provide a gold-star service onboard. VIA Rail does serve the Rockies on its Canadian route, which is a sleeper service.

daylight views in the domed carriage

Daylight views

If you don’t want to miss any views, choose Rocky Mountaineer as their service only travels during daylight hours.

via rail sleeper train

Sleeper cabins

VIA Rail offers sleeper services whereas Rocky Mountaineer doesn’t, so if you’ve dreamt of a cosy cabin bed, go VIA.

via rail trans canada train

Trans Canada

If you’d love to travel right across Canada in a train, taking in everything from the Rockies to the Prairies, VIA Rail’s ‘The Canadian’ is for you.

city hopping in canada by rail

City hopping

The best way to Ottawa, Toronto, Montréal, Québec City and Halifax in one trip (without driving) is to hop on VIA Rail.
