Why everyone should cross Canada by train at least once

See wildlife, savour gourmet cuisine, and slumber peacefully in a private cabin on a train bound from Toronto to Jasper

A dreamy view of boreal forest slides into golden grasslands and blue sky as VIA Rail’s flagship Canadian chugs west toward the prairies. And presently, the Canadian Rockies’ snow-tipped teeth bite into the horizon as the train rolls into Jasper National Park. The country’s majestic and ever-changing landscape is but one reason to embrace this historic means of conveyance on a classic rail journey between Toronto and Jasper that includes three nights on a sleeper train.
