Eastern Canada Rail Tours

Great all year round, but especially scenic during the autumn in September and October, our Eastern Canada route is like stepping into the golden past aboard nostalgic VIA Rail trains.

Traversed by a network of scenic train routes, this tour offers a mesmerizing journey through diverse landscapes and vibrant cities. The iconic VIA Rail takes passengers through the lush greenery of the Maritimes, with its charming coastal towns and historic sites. As the train winds its way through Quebec, passengers are treated to picturesque views of the St. Lawrence River and the cultural richness of cities like Montreal. Continuing into Ontario, where the train glides past the serene beauty of lakes and forests, and includes the dynamic city of Toronto. Eastern Canada by train is a captivating blend of natural wonders and urban allure, creating an unforgettable travel experience.
