Sites to See by Taking the Train Across Canada


There is just one way to see all of this great country in a single trip: take the train. Slow and magical, a train journey across Canada is the best way to celebrate our country’s sesquicentennial — yes, that’s a word.

The best part? We’re going to help you do it. Keep reading to see the beautiful highlights of a VIA Rail trip across Canada — and how you could win one.

The Fraser River

 

Wind your way along the stunning banks of the Fraser River. British Columbia’s longest river has been providing salmon and clean water to local inhabitants for thousands of years. Oh, and it’s gorgeous, too.

The Rockies

The Canadian Rockies are a must-see, once-in-a-lifetime experience. And there is no experience more romantic than seeing them by train.

The Prairies

If you’re doing the cross-Canada, your midway point will be marked by golden, endless fields. Canada is full of unique landscapes, and the Prairies are among the most notable. Lose track of time and relax into the serenity of their golden glow.

The True North

So few of us ever see Canada’s true north. Travel the 1160 kilometres from Jasper to Prince Rupert for a small glimpse of the north’s beautiful forests and rugged landscape.

Jasper

Framed by mountains and stunningly gorgeous, Jasper will take your breath away. Get off the train for a stroll around town or sit still, and watch as the train winds along rivers and lakes.
