Trains hold a special place in Canada’s history—and remain a wonderful way to travel and discover some of the country’s most scenic pockets un-accessible by car. At Entrée Canada, we customize rail journeys in both the east and the west, creating memorable holidays that hark back to the glory days of train travel. Trains provided an important means of transportation in Canada, linking remote communities from coast to coast. The construction of the railroads was responsible for the development of much of the West, and some of the most prestigious hotels in the country were built by Canadian Pacific Railways more than a century ago. These iconic properties include Fairmont Chateau Frontenac in Québec, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge – just to name a few!
Today, the tradition and romance of luxury Canadian train travel endure, and Entrée Canada works with the nation’s two primary suppliers—VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer—to craft trips through the Rockies and in Québec.
