When was the last time you took a vacation on a train?

Updated: May 7, 2022

There are some great rail packages for travel in Europe, the US, and Canada. I attended an informative webinar about 2 weeks ago that mainly focused on Via Rail, Canada’s train system. (Amtrak and Europe train options were mentioned.) The packages presented were from 11 to 13 days and can be modified to suit your needs.

Via Rail Packages (Amtrak is included in 3 of them)

  • Canadian Rockies with Seattle for 11 days

  • Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria, Jasper, Banff, Lake Louise, and Calgary

  • Rockies and the Northwest for 12 days

  • Edmonton, Jasper, Vancouver, Victoria, and San Francisco

  • Capital to Capital Program for 13 days

  • Toronto, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, and D.C.

  • Cross Canada for 13 days

  • Vancouver, Jasper, Banff, Niagara Falls, and Toronto

The Cross Canada takes you through 5 provinces on the train called The Canadian. This train has 3 classes of service to satisfy your travel style and comfort: Economy, Sleeper Plus, and Prestige Sleeper. This train has large picture windows for great scenery viewing, as well as doomed cars.
