Rail Tours in Canada
Journey with Rail Discoveries through the scenic heart of Canada
Canada is chiefly renowned for three things; its hospitality, its wildlife and its breath-taking natural beauty. Covering almost ten million square kilometres, there's abundant space for Canada's thirty-six spectacular national parks and countless unique, entertaining and culturally-rich towns and cities.
With so much to see and do in Canada it's difficult to know where to begin. Banff National Park, the country's oldest; established in 1885, and situated in the iconic Rocky Mountains, is an excellent choice. Picture-postcard perfect, here dramatic snow-capped peaks soar above dense pine forests, glaciers sparkle in the sunlight and mirror-like lakes reflect impossibly blue skies. It's also possible to glimpse black bears, grizzlies, wild cats and a host of other exotic birds and wildlife.
Canada's cities are equally compelling, from the pervasive European ambience of Quebec where café culture and French cuisine are the order of the day to the dazzlingly modern and cosmopolitan Toronto and to laid-back and scenic Vancouver, where the mountains meet the beach.
