The best of Eastern Canada's world-famous fall foliage

At night the temperature drops below freezing and you cozy up by the fire, but the next day is warm and sunny; the Maples stand red, gold and amber against an azure blue sky; and you feel glad to be alive! This is eastern Canada in late September and early October so book your fall Canada train tours early and let us help you make the most of this very special time.
