CROSS-COUNTRY BY RAIL

vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

TORONTO to VANCOUVER

Nancy Gupton, National Geographic, Travel Writer

“I’m a train buff and this cross-country trip had been on my bucket list for years. It’s one of the world’s greatest rail journeys—2,775 miles across a huge country with ever-changing landscapes. The Old World feel really captures the romance of rail travel.”

FAVORITE EXPERIENCES:
“Incredible scenery start to finish- vast prairies, lakes, snow-capped mountains, picturesque towns. I loved trying regional specialties and hearing local musicians and experts who joined different legs of the trip. All these experiences build a real community between passengers.”

DON’T MISS:
“Be sure to spend time in the glass ceiling Panorama Car. Fantastic views of the Rockies, especially beautiful Yellow head Pass across the Continental Divide between Alberta and British Columbia.”

WONDERS ON THE WATER

THE MARITIMES

Ronan Donovan, National Geographic

“My 1,500-mile visual journey through Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island is a story of water—inland lakes, vibrant harbors, scenic coastal drives, bluffs battered by huge ocean swells, sustainable fishing villages, and unique culture shaped by the sea.”

FAVORITE EXPERIENCES:
“In Nova Scotia, I loved kayaking by seals, sea birds, and sailboats to camp on Moshers Island, accessible only by boat. Forest trails took me to coves, bays, and a lighthouse. That evening a giant full moon rose up from the ocean—spectacular. Also toured a sustainable oyster farm on Big Island, Nova Scotia. And saw the world’s highest tidal swings at the Bay of Fundy.’

DON’T MISS:
On Cape Breton Island, hike Highland National Park’s Skyline Trail and drive the Cabot Trail for breathtaking ocean views. Have your camera ready!
