Vancouver Train Tours

Memorable Canadian train trips begin in Vancouver

The West Coast metropolis of Vancouver is the perfect place to begin your Canadian train adventure. Be sure to give yourself extra time at the start of your trip to explore this city. Admire views of the Pacific Ocean and sky-piercing mountains. Then as the train pulls out of the station, you're on your way through the rivers and valleys of the BC interior.

Vancouver to Banff trains carve their way through the dramatic Rocky Mountain peaks. Or travel even further across the wide open prairies on a Vancouver to Toronto train. It's the most comfortable way to experience the sheer scale of Canada.

There are an array of different train trips from Vancouver to choose from.
