Though it is not uncommon for Canadians to discuss traveling by road across the country’s width, most travel of that distance ends up being by plane. Canada Rail Vacations has updated its schedule for nostalgic railway tours heading West across Canada, providing travelers a chance to see the country, from the luxury of a 50s-era train car.

While the scenery is well worth the trip from Toronto, Ont, to Vancouver, BC, it takes over 40 hours of continuous driving to make the journey by car. Canada Rail Vacations offers passengers a more comfortable trip in its nostalgic Canada Train, which blends new and old through glass-domed observation cars, and private sleeper cabins.
There are fresh sights each day, ranging from great lakes and endless forests to rolling prairies and snow-capped mountains. The vacation begins with a night in Toronto, where passengers will receive complimentary passes to visit the CN Tower, which was the world’s tallest freestanding structure until 2007.
Passengers can choose between several options when booking their trip, which will determine the hotels included in their package for the first and final nights of the vacation. After boarding the railway, all made-to-order meals and accommodations will be provided on the train, with a choice of single or double-occupancy sleeper cabins.
Throughout the journey, there are regularly scheduled talks about local areas of interest, and stops made in Winnipeg, Manitoba, as well as Jasper, Alberta. After stopping in Jasper, the train will begin the last leg of the journey, winding through the Canadian Rocky Mountains as it nears Vancouver.

Once the train arrives in Vancouver, guests will have the rest of the day to themselves, and one night’s accommodation at a downtown hotel is included in their vacation package.
Canada Rail is fully Canadian-owned and operated, with a wide variety of nostalgic, scenic, and luxury tours across the country. The full list of tours across Canada and schedules are available on the company’s website.
