The Best Way To See Canadian Winters? By Train!

Icy roads and cancelled flights are all part of winter travel in Canada, a time when it’s harder to get around but definitely worth the work. There is, however, an easier way to take in the extreme beauty of a Canadian winter without the weather-related stress: take the train. Vacations by Rail offers organized train trips all over the world, including some very special routes in two of this country’s winteriest, wonderland-est provinces: Alberta and Quebec.

Vacation By Rail’s Quebec trip takes off from Montreal where, after a sightseeing tour of the city plus free time to wander on your own, the train departs for Quebec City. Skimming the shores of the St. Lawrence, the snowy train ride is the coziest way to see how beautiful winter can be. In just three hours, you’re in Canada’s winter capital, where you can wander the Latin Quarter or visit Montmorency Falls. The trip is just six days long but packs in a ton of cold weather activity.

With a few more vacation days to use before the end of the year, skip the typical sunny destinations (that can wait until March when you’re truly over winter) and head to Alberta for Vacation by Rail’s Banff and Jasper trip. Take off from Calgary towards the mountains for a Day 2 hike in Banff to see ice falls in Johnston Canyon. Next you’ll head to Jasper to look for wildlife and stop by the epic, icy, and Instagrammable Queen of Maligne. This Western Canada trip wraps up with the ultimate train travel experience: an overnight train ride to Vancouver on VIA Rail’s The Canadian, equipped with sleeper cabins and a dining car.
