“I’ve done The Canadian four times, experiencing coach, upper berth and private roomette. VIA trains are pretty far superior to Amtrak (excluding the Cascades line) to start with and the staff is nicer and more relaxed.”  –  VIA Rail Passenger

If you are visiting Canada from abroad, or you happen to live in Canada and are planning a trip, why not consider travelling aboard a train.

It has been said that the most spectacular North American rail journeys are in Canada. And it’s true, the excitement and scenery are spectacular when traveling across Canada on board a train.

As Canada’s national rail passenger service, VIA Rail Canada has been providing inter-city train transportation for decades. VIA consistently ranks as one of the most trusted transportation companies in Canada. In Leger Marketing’s 2010 Top 100 Companies in Canada survey, VIA outranked every other transportation company.

VIA Rail’s flagship train, The Canadian, is a legendary and remarkable three-day, “land cruise” between Vancouver and Toronto across some of Canada’s most spectacular landscapes.
