Niagara Falls on a Train Vacation
See one of the world's most impressive waterfalls during your trip to Canada. An excursion to Niagara Falls is a must-do during your train vacation.
Did you know that more than 567,000 liters of water flow over Niagara Falls every second? That's the same amount used by an average household over 7.5 years. But statistics can’t tell the full story. They don't prepare you for the feeling of sheer awe when you hear the thundering roar and feel the cool spray of this famous natural wonder. It will be one of the most unforgettable moments on your Canadian train vacation.
Our travel experts can help you plan your best trip. Adding a Niagara Falls tour to your itinerary is the best way to experience this area. You’ll also get to explore Niagara on the Lake, a charming small town full of culture, and the Niagara Region, one of the country’s top wine producing spots.

These are some suggested train experiences for your Canadian adventure
VIA Rail is Canada’s main passenger train and connects Vancouver to Halifax with four main train routes. Major stops with VIA Rail you include Vancouver, Jasper, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec and Halifax. These trains run year-round and, depending on the route, may include an overnight sleeper train experience. For Niagara Falls train trips, guests will disembark in Toronto and enjoy time exploring the Niagara Region on small-group or private tours.
There are two train routes in Canada which allow you to sleep on the train, both through VIA Rail: The Canadian runs between Vancouver and Toronto and the Ocean between Montreal and Halifax. Both sleeper train routes are available all year long. For visitors who wish to experience both a sleeper train and Niagara Falls, their best opportunity is an itinerary that includes The Canadian Train and extended time in Toronto.
