Popular sites include: the urban jungle of Stanley Park, Canada’s largest Chinatown and the Robson Street Shopping District.

Day 2 - Vancouver Private City Tour. Departure On Board "The Canadian" Train

Take advantage of your “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass to take in some more of the sights this morning. Depart Vancouver aboard VIA Rail’s “The Canadian” train in the afternoon.

Today is the beginning of your four nights aboard VIA Rail’s The Canadian train. Travel through the lush Fraser Valley and along the salmon-rich waters of the Fraser River before nightfall. The train offers a truly unique experience of Canada’s diverse scenery. All meals are included and can be enjoyed in the dining car or in the comfort of your room. Prestige Class offers you butler service and you can request meals or drinks to be brought to you. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to take in the scenery in the Prestige glass dome car and private lounge. At night you will retire to your oversized private cabin as the gentle sway of the train rocks you to sleep.

Day 3 - "The Canadian" Train in Prestige Class - The Canadian Rockies

You’ll wake up to a Rocky Mountain sunrise and head to the dining car for breakfast. Mount Robson—the highest point in the Canadian Rockies— greets you on your approach to Jasper. You may wish to enjoy breakfast in bed and watch the country glide past you from one scenic postcard to another. The train will stop for a few hours in Jasper, which would allow you some time to look around. Continue on through the province of Alberta and pass through its capital city of Edmonton.

Take the time to get to know the train and all of its services. There are regular scheduled talks about local areas of interest. Or get to know all about the various personalities aboard the train, you’ll certainly meet some interesting characters during these four days of adventure. Read a book, watch a movie or catch up on some writing, as there is plenty of time for it all.

Day 4 - "The Canadian" Train in Prestige Class - Saskatchewan and Manitoba

Your train continues on through the rolling prairies of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Swaying grasslands and fields of gold stretch out before you in every direction underneath a never ending sky. You’ll reach Winnipeg this evening before the train continues on eastwards towards Toronto.

Day 5 - "The Canadian" Train in Prestige Class - Ontario

The entire day is spent travelling across Canada’s second largest province, Ontario. Your route is north of the Great Lakes and the entire day can be spent watching the countryside pass by. Lakes and never ending forests are out your window throughout the day as you glide across our great country on the route the early settlers once took.

Day 6 - "The Canadian" Train in Prestige Class - Arrival in Toronto

Arrive in Toronto in the afternoon. “The Canadian” will be pulling into downtown Toronto’s Union Station and the rest of the day is yours to explore Canada’s largest city. Use your CN Tower admissions pass to view Ontario’s capital city from above. You may choose to walk the glass floor or maybe enjoy a seasonal dinner in the rotating restaurant at the top. You will spend the night in your Toronto hotel room.
