The best of fall foliage on a Trans-Canadian train journey

Let us help you time your train journey across Canada to experience first, the golden stands of Aspens rustling softly against an azure sky in the Canadian Rockies, and then, the brilliant reds and oranges of the Maples in Ontario and Quebec. The best time is from mid-September to early October – so be sure to book early as this is a popular season!
