VIA Rail Holidays

Travel across Canada

VIA Rail is such a flexible way to travel. It has lots of practical routes linking Eastern Canada's cities. You can even travel across Canada on a sleeper train! Lots of the routes are budget-friendly, but there is a choice of seats and cabin types if you fancy a bit of luxury.
