Holidays By Rail

Norwich-based specialty travel company Holidays By Rail offers an enticing assortment of fascinating train packages across Canada ideal for winter travel as well as a new seasonal getaway to Alberta’s alpine towns.

The Christmas season gets a bit merrier with the addition of the new Christmas in the Rockies getaway. Available as an 8- or 10-day itinerary, travellers have the pleasure of spending Christmas in the Canadian Rockies, a true winter wonderland. Canadian train holidays begin in the coastal city of Vancouver, gateway to the Rockies, for a one night stay before boarding VIA Rail’s Canadian for the overnight journey to Jasper. In addition to time spent in the largest National Park in the Canadian Rockies, travellers enjoy local seasonal celebrations in Lake Louise and Banff. This seasonal holiday departs on 17 and 20 December and starts at £1,649 land-only, per person based on double occupancy.

Additional independent train holidays include the popular Canadian Snow Train, linking stays in Toronto and Vancouver with a fascinating four-night train journey, and the Canadian Snow Train with Jasper. All independent train holidays across Canada can be tailored to travellers’ specifications by adding destinations, hotel nights, and sightseeing.

Travellers seeking an escorted cross-Canada adventure appreciate the 13-day Winter Rail Spectacular tour, beginning in Toronto and traveling west by train for overnight stays in Jasper, Vancouver, and Victoria. There are three winter departures—13 November, 22 January, and 10 February—and rates start at £2,560 per person based on double occupancy, including roundtrip airfare from London.

“From cosmopolitan cities to charming alpine towns, a highlight of our winter train holidays across Canada is travel aboard the country’s premier overnight train, VIA Rail’s Canadian,” said Eric Hutchins, general manager of Holidays By Rail. “Travellers can sit back, relax, and admire the passing scenery which includes snow-covered mountain peaks, prairies blanketed in freshly fallen snow, and frozen waterfalls.”
