Frequently Asked Questions

Be a prepared hiker by dressing for the weather and bringing extra breathable clothing layers to put on or take off as necessary to regulate body temperature. Be sure to pack enough water and high-energy food and snacks to last the duration of your hike. If you’re hiking in bear country, it’s a good idea to bring bear spray (and know how to use it) in case you encounter a bruin on the trail. Last, bring a small first aid kit that includes moleskin for blisters.

Canada is laced with trails so it’s possible to hike through forests or to the top of mountains in every province and territory. But the most popular places to go hiking are B.C.’s Coast Mountains, the Canadian Rockies, Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, and Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia.

Many of our guests who travelled through Western Canada saw at least one bear along the way — especially those who participated in a wildlife viewing tour. During certain months of the year, your chance of seeing bears increases dramatically. Of course, there is no guarantee of seeing wildlife during your train vacation as these animals are wild and roam Canada’s vast wilderness.

Heli-hiking excursions are catered to your activity level.

The scenery in Alberta was spectacular

The scenery in Alberta was spectacular. The Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver and the Delta Point Hotel in Victoria were very special. The Glacier tour on the Athabasca Glacier was wonderful.
