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

Holiday Duration: 4 Nights

"The journey you picked out was super."

Many thanks for another fantastic holiday. Firstly the wedding of our youngest son in Vancouver was a great day for us all. Everything went well and was very enjoyable. Thanks again for selecting a well balanced holiday. The car Jeep Grant Cherokee was only a week old and took all our luggage. The journey you picked out was super. Summit Lodge in Whistler was excellent. The guest house by the lake in Clearwater was one of the best we have ever stayed. Sandie and John were excellent hosts. The rooms and breakfast were fantastic. Wells Grey Provincial Park, is a real gem with fantastic waterfalls and great walks. Jasper was unfortunately a bit damp, but we managed to go on the sky tram after the rain and got some great views. On the way to emerald lake we went on the Brewsters Glacier tour which we all enjoyed. Emerald Lake lodge with the lake view was excellent. I think the views were better than Lake Louise!

Thanks again and look forward in using you again.

'The Epic Journey' between Toronto and Vancouver.

Please note we will tailor-make your entire holiday. This train journey needs to be packaged up with flights and accommodation. Please ask us for a suggested itinerary.

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 among other places at Winnipeg in the Prairies and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies.

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. Or treat yourself to Prestige Class with luxurious accommodation and a personal concierge.

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

This journey will be part of your longer tailor-made holiday of your choice; including flights, accommodation in Toronto, Vancouver and and other areas. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier"

Firstly thank you so much Jeanette for your hard work. The whole holiday was perfect the hotels, timing, planning, organised trips all happened like clockwork. Not once did we have an issue, problem or disappointment.

In fact the holiday was one wow experience after another. Your choice of hotels was exceptional. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The car, a wrangler jeep was hilarious and essential and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The itinerary worked perfectly with a great balance between trips that you organised and free time for our own plans. I have to admit I was initially anxious about some of the longer journeys on Vancouver Island but they were ok and when we arrived at the various destinations it was well worth the effort.
I found you on the net. Your early engagement with what I wanted was what encouraged me and as our relationship deepened I became increasingly confident that I had stumbled on a gem of a business. Having now experienced the holiday of a lifetime I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier Travel
