Days 1-2 - Vancouver

Following your flight from London Heathrow, make your way to your Vancouver hotel. The rest of your day is free to look around the city. Perhaps visit Stanley Park, home to a colourful collection of totem poles, or Gastown, where you can see the whistling steam clock in action. Enjoy included admission to the Vancouver Lookout, an impressive observation point that offers panoramic views over the city and waterfront. Following a leisurely morning on Day 2, make your way to the station to board The Canadian and begin your overnight journey to Jasper.

Downtown Vancouver
Days 3-5 - Jasper

The Canadian pulls into Jasper this morning, a town set amidst the natural beauty of Jasper National Park. Marvel at the snow-capped Canadian Rockies and glacier-fed lakes before checking into your hotel for the next 3 nights. Day 4 includes a guided sightseeing tour of Jasper National Park. Follow in the footsteps of the country's early explorers and admire the Athabasca River Valley and Maligne Canyon, a 164-feet deep gorge of sheer limestone walls, and the turquoise waters of Maligne Lake. Enjoy free time on Day 5. Perhaps hike through some of the nature trails that weave their way throughout the area, embark on a wildlife excursion to glimpse wolves, elk, beavers and bears, or spend some time relaxing at the nearby hot springs.

Maligne Lake, Jasper
Days 6-8 - By rail to Toronto

Board The Canadian again today and continue your cross-country rail adventure. Over the next 3 days and nights, soak up fantastic views of the landscapes as you cross the Canadian Shield - a wild land of frozen lakes, snow-covered trees and isolated communities. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of caribou, eagles, wood buffalo or the elusive pygmy shrew. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is included each day on board.

The Canadian train
Days 9-11 - Toronto

The Canadian pulls into the heart of Toronto on Day 9, leaving time to relax for a final night of Canadian hospitality before your homeward journey on Day 10. After an overnight flight, you land in London on Day 11.
