Canadian Culinary Experiences by Rail

Taste your way across the country by riding the train

When you take a train journey across Canada, the only thing that might pull your attention away from the stunning scenery outside your window is the unique and exciting flavours on your plate. Local ingredients come to life in a variety of dishes, including British Columbia salmon, high quality Alberta beef, Saskatoon berries and much more. The focus is on farm-to-table freshness, presented in a new and creative way by passionate chefs.

In French Canada, indulge in Tourtiere (pork pie), hearty ham and pea soup and poutine (thick-cut fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy.) The food is rich and comforting - perfect on a cold winter's day.

Plus, when you arrive on the East Coast don't miss the chance to treat yourself to Nova Scotia lobster - a lip-smackingly delicious Maritime feast. If you need help arranging your food vacation, our Canadian travel experts will be happy to help.
