The Trains

The Canadian – This train was the last Trans-Continental passenger train to be built for the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is currently operated as an Inter-city rail service, travelling between Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, following a different route than used previously, now going through Saskatoon and Edmonton on the more northerly main line rather than Regina and Calgary. The original coaches have been fully restored and carry passengers on epic journeys, crossing rugged landscapes.

The Rocky Mountaineer – This train is the busiest privately owned passenger rail service of North America, carrying over 1 million passengers since 1900. Travelling on this train is a lifetime experience where the journey takes place during the daylight hours to allow passengers to fully enjoy the fantastic scenery of the mountains and canyons of Canada’s West.

Why not try something new in 2013 and take in the breath-taking sights of Canada’s mountainous scenery and cosmopolitan cities, travelling in the best way, by rail.
