The longest railway journey in North America, the Canadian journeys three times a week between Toronto and Vancouver via Sudbury Junction, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Jasper, and Kamloops. The railway traverses the windswept lake lands of northern Ontario as well as the rolling western plains of the prairies before the most magnificent section of the route – the climb up into the craggy heights of the Canadian Rockies – wrapping up its journey on British Columbia’s Pacific Coast. Between Sudbury Junction and Winnipeg, travelers wishing to get totally off the beaten track can request a special stop at any point along the line which offers unrivaled access to some of the most stunning Canadian wilderness.
Train Schedule Three departures every week in each direction.
When to Go The pleasantly warm summer months from June to September are a good time to travel.
