Itinerary

Day 1 Vancouver

Arrive in Vancouver, make your way to your downtown hotel. Spend some time exploring some of the city’s top attractions including Chinatown, Stanley Park, Gastown, English Bay Beach, and the Robson Street Shopping District.

Days 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 Vancouver to Toronto

Spend the morning exploring Vancouver with your Hop-on Hop-off city tour pass. Your train departs Vancouver in the late afternoon. Sleeping quarters are provided aboard the train in a private cabin. From Vancouver you’ll travel north into British Columbia’s interior, before entering the famed Canadian Rockies in the early morning of Day 3. Here, you’ll pass towering snow-draped peaks, cascading streams and earth-carving glaciers. After the Rockies, the geography levels out as you enter Saskatchewan and then Manitoba – Canada’s breadbasket. Both provinces feature endless horizons dominated by swaying grasslands and golden fields of wheat. Your train then huffs into Ontario, scooting just north of the Great Lakes, before reaching Toronto on Day 6. Enjoy a night in your hotel in Toronto.

Day 7 Toronto

We've included a CN Tower Admission Pass to enjoy the views. You can use this on arrival day into Toronto or the next day. Your tour ends upon checking out of your Toronto hotel.

This itinerary is also available in reverse on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays.
