The Canadian Train – VIA Rail | Trans Canada, Toronto to Vancouver

Holiday Duration: 4 Nights

Overview

Overview

‘The Epic Journey’ between Toronto and Vancouver.

See Canada by train. The VIA rail train on its 4-day rail journey across Canada traversing the forests of Ontario, the rocky outcrops of the Canadian Shield, through to the flat lands and prairies. The VIA Rail train stops amongst other places at Winnipeg in the Prairies and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies.

You are allowed two free stopovers (in Sleeper Plus class) along the route: more are available but have to be paid for. We recommend the VIA Rail Sleeper Plus Class, where accommodation is either in semi-private berths or private cabins. Meals are included and you can use the Park and Skyline Car on the train with the wrap around windows to ensure the best view as you travel across Canada.

This has to be one of the most relaxing ways to see Canada.

"We saw bears, whales, eagles, deer"

We cannot thank Frontier enough for organizing our fantastic trip across Canada. We saw bears, whales, eagles, deer and experienced great hospitality and fabulous food. Our only complaint was it just wasn’t long enough, we could have stayed a month!
