Canada Rail Holidays

China Week

Canada is a country on an epic scale. Unrivalled in its variety of huge landscapes, from fjord studded coastline, vast prairies and enormous waterfalls to glacier capped mountains, boreal forests and icy blue lakes, to name just a very few, this is a place where the adventure is plentiful, and the ‘wow’ moments just keep on coming.

Set within these glorious landscapes are vibrant cities – Vancouver with its laidback feel and spectacular setting, hip, cosmopolitan Toronto, and Quebec City, the enchanting bastion of old France – a people who cover a whole spectrum of cultures and a wealth of First Nations (indigenous) heritage.

This mix gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a diverse range of cultural, artistic and culinary experiences that show that Canada has so much more to give than maple syrup, ice hockey and Mounties. While Canada’s size can be intimidating, you’ll find, as you begin to explore, that the welcoming Canucks and the friendly, small-town vibe soon makes you feel right at home and raring to discover more.

The amount of rail travel you'll be enjoying varies from tour to tour. You may be exploring a country travelling predominantly by train or perhaps just getting a flavour of how the locals get about with one or two select journeys. We've also included those tours that include a journey on iconic scenic trains. Take a look at the tour inclusions to see how many rail journeys you'll be enjoying in each instance.

Travelling by Rail in Canada

Travelling by Rail in Canada

Canada’s first transcontinental railway was completed in 1885, connecting Vancouver on the Pacific with the port of Montreal in the east. Today, the network that this began has expanded to take in major cities and provincial capitals from the Atlantic coast across, creating a perfect, easy and comfortable way to see the variety of Canada’s gargantuan landscapes.

You’ll also find luxury trains running some of the most picturesque sections, in fact, the iconic Rocky Mountaineer is now the only passenger train that uses the historic Canadian Pacific line. These trains offer a once-in-a-lifetime and wholly opulent experience, with large, comfortable seats, panoramic windows, drinks service and delicious, chef-prepared meals.
