We enjoy a guided tour of Toronto, visiting many of its captivating highlights. The rest of your day is at leisure. 

Day 3: Niagara Falls and The Canadian

Our excursion today takes us to the incredible Niagara Falls, truly one of the natural wonders of the world. During our time at the Falls you have time to experience the awesome power of crashing waters, either from the viewing area or at the foot of the thundering Falls on board the boat here (payable locally). We continue to Niagara-on-the-Lake, where we have free time to explore.

Day 4-5: On board the Canadian

Our first full day on board is spent crossing the Canadian Shield.

On Day 5 we arrive in Winnipeg, a fascinating city which is home to over 50 ethnic communities. The train stops in Winnipeg for the morning, giving us the opportunity to explore

Day 6-7: Through the Rockies to Jasper National Park

After passing Edmonton, we begin the climb into the foothills of the Rockies passing pine forests, glaciers, plunging canyons and soaring peaks. We arrive in Jasper in the early afternoon and spend the night surrounded by majestic mountain scenery. 

Day 8: Banff National Park 

Today we experience the spectacular natural beauty of Banff National Park, visiting the Spiral Tunnels, as well as the majestic Emerald Lake, renowned for its vivid colours, and the idyllic waters of Lake Louise.

Vancouver, widely regarded as one of the most desirable places in the world to live, combines its breathtaking setting with beautiful architecture and a perfectly-pitched way of life. It is among Canada's largest cities, and its port is the largest on North America's west coast.
