Explore Canada at its classic best

There's a reason Canada is known as a winter country. Imagine gliding through the frozen Rockies with brilliant white mountain peaks framed by deep blue skies. Or moving through a rolling countryside of snow and icy forests of spruce and aspen. When the train stops, enjoy sleigh rides, snowshoeing or the indescribably simple pleasure of warming by a crackling fire in your lodge.
