Train Travel Attractions & Entertainment

Travel the province the way some of Alberta’s earliest visitors did. Rail travel in Alberta is all about the journey. Now's a great time to start. • See it: Snag a seat in the glass-walled observation car on a trip between Jasper and Edmonton. It's the perfect place to gawk at the preserved wilderness from all angles. • Level up: If the old-fashioned glamour of train travel is on your bucket list, go all-in. Book a Rocky Mountain train trip complete with gourmet meals. • Offbeat: Get robbed by prairie bandits, solve a mysterious murder, and top it off with a juicy steak dinner. It all happens on a vintage steam train staffed by characters from the past.

Dressing up in costumes, going to parties or hosting one. Decorating and baking scary types of foods and sweet treats. But for a lot of others, it’s the thrill of pushing your fear boundaries to get that adrenaline rush.
