Canada Rail & Cruise

Is there a better way to experience Canada than to travel the most iconic and remote areas by cruise or rail?

From the heart of the Rockies to the wilderness of Alaska, let these methods of transport take you on an incredible journey through regions you would otherwise miss. One of the most enjoyable ways to explore Canada is on the iconic and world famous Rocky Mountaineer train.

Rocky Mountaineer

Undoubtedly, Canada’s most famous train is the Rocky Mountaineer. Renowned for its spectacular vistas, viewed through luxurious glass-domed carriages, it is one of the world’s ultimate travel experiences.

The Rocky Mountaineer carves its way through the impressive Canadian Rockies on four different routes, from the bustling city of Vancouver to the serenity of Jasper and Banff National Parks.

On board, enjoy the luxury of Silver Leaf or the superior Gold Leaf service. Dine on beautifully prepared meals, meet people from all over the world and take in the incredible sights Mother Nature has to offer.

Other Rail Options in Canada

Throughout the rest of Canada, VIA Rail connects some 120 destinations, from country towns to exciting cities, such as Montreal, Quebec and Toronto. For a longer rail adventure, board one of the VIA Rail long distance trains that travel through the night and connect the eastern cities to Jasper, Vancouver and the west.

VIA’s economy cabins are comfortable and spacious, with free WiFi and large picture windows to enjoy the views. Or treat yourself to Business Class, with table served meals, local wines and beers and access to Business class lounges before your journey.

Our exciting Rail Explorers and holidays can be included in any Canada holiday and your consultant will be happy to arrange pre-booked seats or cabins for you.

Cruise Options in Canada

Cruising is a fantastic way to enjoy a more specific region of Canada, especially those with limited access by land and remoteness that is hard to find in other parts of the world. Cruising helps to slow the pace and get closer to iconic animals that you would never otherwise see wild.

If you dream of admiring majestic orca whales or catching a glimpse of native bears, try a cruise in Alaska and get closer than ever before.
