Explore Canada from Coast to CoastVancouver, Canada

Watch Canada's wildly diverse landscape materialise before your eyes from the comfort of a cosy train car, as you journey across the world's second largest country. You'll take in Canada's five most southern provinces – British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario – as you travel from east to west (or vice versa) on board The Canadian. From the buzzing harbourside metropolis of Vancouver through the heart of the rugged Canadian Rockies and onto the multicultural mecca of Toronto, this epic journey encompasses many of the natural, urban, cultural and historical contrasts that make Canada such a beguiling nation to visit.

Those that opt for the full transcontinental shebang will roll a whopping 4,466 kilometres across the country, spending four nights and three days aboard. That leaves plenty of time to sample the local Canadian fare served up in the dining car while admiring the scenery. And should you tire of the landscapes rolling by (unlikely), then there are plenty of wine tastings and musical performances to keep you entertained.

From about US$1,000 for the entire journey in economy.
