Travelling cross-country in style with VIA Rail Canada
Sprawling across the North American continent, Canada is a country with a rich natural landscape and welcoming people. From the glittering waterfront city of Vancouver and the splendour of the Rocky Mountain range, there's something for everyone here.
Now you can take a journey through the heart of Canada by train, taking in every second of its beautiful vistas from the comfort of your seat with VIA Rail's The Canadian service. This classic cross country journey has just been upgraded to include a deluxe sleeper class.
Here is a preview of what you can look forward to on board.
Transporting you from one great city to the next
You'll begin your Canadian rail journey in Vancouver, on the west coast. Set in the picturesque state of British Columbia, the city acts as a vibrant, yet chic hub for the arts - both visual and culinary. Home to some of the best restaurants around, you can find everything from fine dining to a wide range of international cuisine.
Lose yourself in the tranquil enclosure of Stanley Park, resplendent in Autumn with its signiture Douglas Firs, Western Red Cedars, Western Hemlock and Sitka Spruce trees as well as a miniature temperate forest. The Vancouver Art Gallery also provides another wonderful option to pass your time here, with a myriad of cutting edge contemporary works.
Step into your luxury accommodation on board The Canadian
When you're ready to depart from Vancouver, VIA Rail's friendly staff will welcome you aboard and introduce you to your accommodation. If you are travelling in the new Prestige Sleeper Class, you'll be staying a comfortable private cabin where your lounge suite can be transformed into a lay flat Murphy bed.
You'll also enjoy concierge service and complimentary drinks throughout your trip, as well as scrumptious meals made fresh by the on board chefs. You can enjoy your morning tea or coffee in bed, watching the scenic landscape glide past your cabin's large window.
When you're ready for lunch, Prestige Sleeper Class passengers have priority reservations for the dining cart, so you can find your ideal spot to enjoy the sights while you tuck into your delicious meal.
