These trains will make the natural beauty and history of Canada real to you. Great for train enthusiasts, adventure seekers, families, and those celebrating milestone moments, travel aboard VIA Rail will deliver opportunities to see untamed wildlife, Canada’s exquisite natural wonders, hand-crafted local cuisine, and meet new friends on the train.

Have a Romantic Cross Canada Train Trip for Two

When our guests book overnight train trips, we provide rooms aboard VIA Rail’s Sleeper Plus class Cabins for Two. During the day, you’ll enjoy the scenery from the privacy of your private cabin while reclining on a seat or couch; at night, your bed will be rolled out and you’ll be rocked asleep by the gentle sway of the train. You’ll have access to a private wash closet – bathroom – sink, vanity, closet, and electrical outlets within your cabin; each railcar shares a shower room. Solo travelers have extra room in their private cabin for two to enjoy additional space to enjoy the luxury of Across Canada rail travel.

During the day you are free to wander through the train and utilize its many cars. You take meals in the dining car as you enjoy the rolling scenery, you might spend some time in the lounge listening to live music, or you might have a drink at the bar or make your way to the dome section in the Skyline car where you will be able to experience the uninterrupted landscape beneath the glass dome.
