Overview

This journey will take you across Canada from east to west, as you journey from Toronto to Vancouver and discover the diverse landscapes in-between. Start off with some time in cosmopolitan Toronto before boarding the VIA Rail Canadian train, which weaves alongside the lakes of Manitoba and the grain fields of Saskatchewan. You’ll disembark in Alberta and set off to explore the Canadian Rockies – you’ll start in Jasper, then along the Icefields Parkway to Lake Louise and Banff.

After a few days of exploring, it’s time to board a train once more – but this time you’ll be stepping travelling on the iconic Rocky Mountaineer. This world-famous train will take you from Banff to Vancouver through some of the most spectacular scenery in Western Canada. Once in Vancouver, you’ll have a few days to explore this vibrant city, plus a daytrip to visit Victoria on Vancouver Island. This 15-day trip is sure to be unforgettable.
