Train Vacations from Calgary
Enjoy this thriving prairie metropolis on an inspiring rail journey
Calgary rises proudly from the Alberta prairie — a vibrant city with an intriguing art and culture scene, superb dining and some of the region's best museums. Plus, in July it hosts the legendary Calgary Stampede.
This is where many unforgettable Canadian train experiences begin. When you embark via train from Calgary you can head towards the mirror-like Lake Louise, on a route that carves along sheer rock faces and through mountain tunnels and dense pine forest.
Or you can travel to Vancouver — through the jaw-dropping scenery of the Rockies and the lush BC interior to the mossy forests and shimmering water of the Pacific Coast.
Whichever route you take, you'll be pampered with service, snacks and a luxurious berth that will make the journey special.

VIA Rail Train
The VIA Rail trains connect Canada from Vancouver to Halifax, with four different train routes. Major city stops include Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Jasper, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec and Halifax. The trains run year round. Depending on the route, they offer daylight or overnight sleeper train experiences.
The rail portion of your trip can come before or after your Alaska cruise. There are two types of cruise ships to choose from: a larger, more luxurious vessel or a smaller ship that allows you to visit more coves and inlets. Each type of ship has its advantages and it depends on your style of travel and what you want to get out of your Alaska cruise adventure.
