Print Itinerary
Day 1 Toronto


Fly to Toronto from the UK today. On arrival, you will be transferred to the 4-Star Chelsea Hotel (or similar) where you will stay for the next 3 nights. Once called York, Toronto has traded hands a number of times throughout history, once as a settlement by the Iroquois and as a French trading post. Thanks to its diverse history and huge immigration over the last two centuries, Toronto is seen as one of the most global and international cities in Northern America.

Day 3 Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

Leave behind the Toronto bustle for the remarkable natural beauty of Niagara Falls. On this full-day tour, start with a scenic drive through Niagara's verdant wine region en route to the falls. Break for a buffet lunch before hopping on a Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat. Cruise up Niagara River for up-close views of the awesome Horseshoe Falls (weather permitting) and then head to the Whirlpool Rapids observation deck. Top off your trip with a stop at a local winery.

Journey on the Canadian

Today you board The Canadian, for an iconic journey across the country. Your on-board accommodation is 'no-frills' yet comfortable, consisting of private twin cabins shielded by a heavy curtain for privacy, and access to shared bathroom facilities in the same sleeper car. During the day, wander to one of the observation cars for incredible views of the spectacular Canadian landscape the train passes through, on this truly iconic journey. You enjoy some of the most striking scenery on the route, passing pine forests, glaciers, plunging canyons and soaring peaks.
