You’re surrounded by snow. It’s whirling all around you and blanketing the branches of the evergreens. From the frozen river to the mountain tops to the sky, everywhere you look is sparkling white. A steaming plate of gourmet fare is placed before you, snapping you out of your reverie. You’re watching the wild weather from the comfort of a glass-domed dining car as your train winds through the mountains.
Equally spectacular in summer, experience the Rockies by train and see why UNESCO declared them a World Heritage Site. Travel through the remote wilderness of high mountain passes, glacial rivers and deep canyons. Glimpse wildlife you would rarely see from the road. Step off at a vintage railway station and discover the magic of Jasper or Banff.
For an unforgettable day trip, take an antique steam train across the wide open prairie. Engaging themes are played out on board, from murder mysteries to train robberies. Travellers of all ages will be mesmerized by the timeless vistas of Alberta by rail.
