Canada Coast to Coast by Rail
Canada’s rail system stretches from coast to coast; from the Maritimes to British Columbia. Exploring Canada by rail is the finest way to see the country’s sights and delights. You may choose to start in Halifax in the stunning Maritime Provinces and take the famed Ocean train overnight to Montreal. En-route you will stop at the chicest French speaking town in Canada, Quebec. Perhaps spend a couple of days here exploring this world heritage treasure. The friendly atmosphere adds to the European charm. You'll find horse-drawn carriages, street entertainers, singers, and artists, particularly at Old Québec's own open-air art gallery. Then take a train to Montreal and a few hours later arrive in this charming city. The ‘Old World’ flavour of this picturesque town combine with its vibrant new image to enchant even the worldliest traveller. Then on to cosmopolitan Toronto where you may choose to take a day trip to the mighty falls of Niagara; always best seen from the Canadian side. Finish your journey here or embark on an adventure to the west coast.
Leaving from Toronto three times a week is a train that will travel over two thousand miles on its way to Vancouver. View the serene wilderness of the prairie provinces from the comfort of your cabin or from the restaurant car as the miles glide by. The majestic Canadian Rockies will enthrall you before you descend into the wonders of Vancouver and its surrounding islands and attractions.
