The Ocean Train – VIA Rail | Montreal to Halifax

Holiday Duration: 1 Night

Frontier’s Personal Experience

The VIA rail train from Moncton to Quebec City is really enjoyable, lovely views and very relaxing. It’s a novel but nice experience to dine and sleep on the train, I highly recommend it. It’s popular though so you need to book this up early. The sleeper plus cabin for two has 2 bunks and a private washroom with Shower, WC and sink.

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.

The Ocean begins in Montreal and journeys overnight through the rural communities of Quebec’s South Shore to New Brunswick – where you could hop off in Moncton and spend a few days exploring the Bay of Fundy – and onwards, arriving at Halifax in the afternoon. This is a wonderful way to experience two distinct regions of Canada. We recommend Sleeper Plus Class which includes meals on board the train and overnight accommodation in the sleeping cars (private cabins).

Year round, choose the relaxing ambience and attentive service of budget travel in Economy class, or upgrade to Sleeper Plus Class.

A lot of people explore, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and  Quebec City before boarding The Ocean in Quebec City and heading overnight to Halifax.

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