Train Vacations to Banff
Journey to a charming mountain town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies
The most spectacular way to reach Banff National Park from Vancouver is to take the train. This rail line carries you through jaw-dropping mountain passes and alongside rivers and canyons before arriving at the station of this welcoming little mountain community.
Banff has the perfect balance between cultured sophistication and wilderness. It's a town where you can browse in a fine art gallery, dine on filet mignon and sip a latte in a coffee shop — but you also don't have to go far to find yourself completely surrounded by untouched forests and glacial lakes.
