VIA Rail 'Canadian' Train across Canada
VIA Rail 'Canadian' Train across Canada Winnipeg Reviews
Sep 24, 2006
Canada being a huuuuuge country takes some getting across. Having decided not to fly we chose to take the train that goes from East to West. We didn't regret it. We opted not to have a sleeper as it was very expensive so would spend the nights sat in normal seats. Fortuately these had loads of room, leg rests, foot rests, you dont need to be in a bed on this train.
It also has a dome car so when you are travelling through the more scenic areas you can get a 360 degree view. You can imagaine that this is very good whlst travelling through the Rockies.
We travelled in September, so outside of the busiest times so there was loads of room, not sure if it would be the same in Summer.
In order to travel on it we bought a rail pass (15 days of travel in 30 days), although it was expensive it meant that we could travel accross at our own pace and break up the journey.
Well worth doing as you get to see a lot of this massive country.
