Train Trips from Toronto
Set off on a memorable trans-Canada rail journey from Toronto
Toronto is the ideal jumping-off point for a train trip across Canada. This multicultural city is packed with museums, restaurants and nightlife and is a major stop on the trans Canada railway. Head west on a Toronto to Vancouver train trip and you'll be rocketing through the dense woodland and tranquil lakes of Ontario's cottage country. Experience the vast yellow canola fields of the prairies until you reach the sky-scraping Rocky Mountain peaks and the Pacific Coast.
Or head east towards Montreal to immerse yourself in Quebec's unique culture and explore some of the most sophisticated and entertaining cities in Canada.
No matter which direction you travel in, you'll enjoy friendly service and gourmet cuisine while aboard a comfortable train car.

The Canadian Train
The Canadian connects Toronto and Vancouver, with stops in Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Jasper. This route can also be travelled in reverse. This train covers a total of 4,446 km, which takes about 86 hours. Enjoy sweeping views in the Panorama car, where giant windows extend up to the ceiling.
The Rocky Mountaineer connects British Columbia and Alberta, with stops in Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff, Vancouver, Whistler, Quesnel and Kamloops. The train runs from mid-April until mid-October. The Rocky Mountaineer is a daylight only train designed so that passengers can experience the most spectacular views and optimal photo opportunities.
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.
