Day 1
Across Canada train vacation begins – arrive Vancouver
One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Vancouver is surrounded by mountains and ocean. Depending on your time of arrival, you can relax and dine al fresco, take a trip out to Stanley Park, or try one of the many tours on foot or bicycle. Overnight in Vancouver.

Day 2
In Vancouver
Today you have the choice to enjoy a sightseeing tour by bus of Vancouver’s main highlights with a small group and guide, or take in a grand cycling tour of Vancouver and Stanley Park.

Spend the remainder of your day at your leisure. You can stroll the beaches of English Bay, whilst admiring misty gulf islands and snow capped mountains in the distance, or discover a secret garden in Chinatown. Overnight in Vancouver.

Day 3 On the Rocky Mountaineer – Vancouver to Kamloops
A lonesome wail sounds from the Canadian Rockies railroad whistle, and the smell of your breakfast wafts from the galley, as the Rocky Mountaineer train leaves Vancouver on the first leg of its journey through the Canadian Rockies.

Over lunch you’ll climb the steep Fraser Canyon, past the thundering water of Hell’s Gate, and take a trip through the high desert of British Columbia’s interior. Relax, chat, read, or stretch your legs on an outdoor viewing platform.

In late afternoon, the train arrives in Kamloops where you observe the lifestyle of locals in a small Rockies town. Overnight in Kamloops.

Day 4 – On the Rocky Mountaineer – Kamloops to Banff
The second day onboard the Rocky Mountaineer, anticipation builds over breakfast for your first sighting of the high peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Along the way you’ll learn about the history of the Canadian Rockies, and the railroad, keep your eyes peeled for elk, bald eagles and bears.

Finally you enter the famous Spiral Tunnels - ascending slowly, round and round through the darkness, until, blinking, you emerge to find yourself high in the Canadian Rockies, surrounded by mighty peaks topped with snow. Overnight in Banff.

Day 5 The famous Canadian Rockies Banff
Fill your lungs with cool, fresh Canadian air! Today enjoy a change of pace on your Rockies train trip. Explore the sleepy mountain town of Banff on an intimate guided tour and drink in the views of the surrounding national parks from the summit of Sulphur Mountain.

The lofty peak is reached by a gondola swinging beneath the cable far above the valley floor and surrounded by jagged Canadian Rockies peaks, with the Bow River glistening in the distance. Overnight in Banff.

Day 6 – Deeper into the Rockies – Banff to Lake Louise
On a transfer, meander your way from Banff to Lake Louise this morning. Finally, you’ll see perhaps the most famous view of your entire Canadian Rockies train trip and in all of the Rockies - the turquoise water of Lake Louise, surrounded by glaciers tumbling down from the high peaks. This is a place to relax, stretch your legs on a stroll or a hike - or go for a paddle in a canoe. Overnight in Lake Louise.

Day 7 The Icefields Parkway Lake Louise to Jasper
Today’s tour will travel through the heart of the Canadian Rockies, a UNESCO world heritage site. Your chance for discovery is enhanced by your small group tour, led by an expert guide. Spectacular glaciers, cascading waterfalls, turquoise lakes and alpine meadows dot the route as you stop to admire. Stop at the Columbia Icefield where you venture aboard the Ice Explorer onto the 6 kilometer long Athabasca Glacier and take a step along the Glacier Skywalk. A picnic lunch is included. Overnight in Jasper.

Day 8 Maligne Lake tour and cruise / Canadian Train Journey East – onboard the Canadian Train
This morning the natural beauty of the Rockies is right outside your window as you take a guided tour through one of the National Park’s most spectacular areas. Marvel at the Maligne River as it thunders through the canyon in a series of waterfalls. Learn how Medicine Lake is “mysteriously” disappearing before boarding a narrated cruise on Maligne Lake, bound for serene Spirit Island.

This afternoon you are transferred to the train station where a cozy cabin with a large picture window and seats that become a comfortable nighttime bed awaits you on Via Rail’s - the Canadian train. Your across Canada train vacation continues as you leave the Rockies and slowly glide into the Canadian prairies.

Days 9 and 10 – Canadian Train Journey East – onboard the Canadian
The scenery changes once as you travel across the undulating plain of the Prairie Provinces. Settle into your seat and enjoy watching the sights from your window. The rich yellows and golds of the prairies are illuminated in the sunlight. In the distance you spot a lone red barn surrounded by a decrepit wooden fence which strikes you as uniquely beautiful. Who knew such flat land could be so stunning?

Day 11 Arrive in Toronto and tour the city
Spend a day enjoying the quaint and colorful neighborhoods that Toronto is famous for. A two hour city tour ensures you won’t miss any of the main city attractions. Overnight in Toronto.

Day 12
Witness the power of Niagara Falls
First thing this morning, join a guide to see one of the great natural wonders of the world - Niagara Falls. The Hornblower takes you close enough to the falls to feel the spray on your face, the thundering sound gets louder and louder and you’re thankful for your poncho. Nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake is a charming Canadian town, and the perfect place to unwind on your vacation. Overnight in Toronto.

Day 13 A new Canadian Culture Awaits on your Across Canada Train Trip – Montreal
The Corridor train carries you into the next province of Canada – Quebec! Train travel is the most scenic route you can take in Canada. Enjoy the views along the shore of Lake Ontario, the open farmland of rural Quebec and the shore of the St. Lawrence River. Overnight in Montreal.

Day 14 Montreal Sightseeing
Today you travel through the depths of Montreal’s history on a guided tour. Step back in time at the gorgeous Notre Dame Basilica, explore the old Bonsecours Market, and savor the anecdotes of your guide as you gaze across the city from Mont Royal Park. Overnight in Montreal.

Day 15 – Montreal to Quebec City
Travel a short distance by train through Quebec’s picturesque countryside as your across Canada train vacation heads towards Quebec City. Step into Quebec City’s colorful history as you visit authentic Quebecois shops, and discover the pride that the residents feel for their city.

Day 16 - Explore Quebec City
Spend a full day discovering Quebec City’s French Canadian culture. Marvel at the beautiful architecture of the fortified city, visit historic sites commemorating the battles between French and English, and discover the many quirky local shops and galleries. Choose between two delightful sightseeing tour options to experience this unique city: a 2-hour coach tour or a 3-hour private walking tour. Overnight in Quebec City.

Day 17 - Quebec Countryside Tour & VIA Rail’s Ocean Train – Overnight on train
Today you travel back in time to rural Quebec as you ride along the Chemin du Roy to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. You will visit the world famous Shrine in Sainte-Anne de- Beaupré, stop at the Montmorency Falls and be treated to a short visit on the Island of Orléans, discovered by Jacques Cartier in 1535.

This evening you will be transferred to Ste. Foy where you will board VIA Rail’s Ocean train. Travel past rolling hills, and quaint coastal villages that appear from times long past as you make your across Atlantic Canada.

After a day to immerse yourself in the thriving culture of Halifax, you will enjoy a tour to explore the coastal gems of Nova Scotia and Halifax. Overnight in Halifax.

Although there was a train problem between Vancouver and Kamloops delaying our arrival by 4 hours, the Rocky Mountaineer staff handled it professionally,... read more in good spirits, and provided an additional dinner meal. They were fantastic! I would highly recommend the Rocky Mountaineer Trip. Banff, Lake Louise, Quebec City and Halifax were my favorites. The scenery was spectacular.  All the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable. We were very pleased with all the accommodations and most of the connections. Great organizing. We thoroughly enjoyed our Niagara Tour and our dinner at the 360 restaurant at the top of the CN Tower. Business Class on the train to Montreal was very nice. Loved Quebec City! It was a trip of a lifetime. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you again.
