Train Travel Attractions & Entertainment

There’s something wildly romantic about Canadian train travel. Climb aboard a steam- powered train in Alberta and experience a bygone era. Meet a Mountie, solve a murder mystery and maybe even spy a coyote trotting across a farmer’s field. Perhaps a journey through the Canadian Rocky Mountains on a sleek modern train is more your style. Watch for wildlife from the comfort of a glass-domed observation car as you wind past rushing rivers and rugged mountains in remote wilderness. Enjoy fine dining and white glove service – this is bucket list material. No matter your choice, you won’t just get somewhere – you’ll enjoy the journey.
