Sightseeing in Canada
Ride the rails on this legendary train journey from Vancouver to Calgary and Banff. Winding its way from the beguiling Pacific coast city of Vancouver and through the picturesque Canadian Rockies, the Mountaineer offers a relaxing and enjoyable way to see the snow-capped peaks and idyllic country side of British Columbia and Alberta. The train operates during day light hours only for maximum viewing pleasure.
With its striking cliff top position above the St. Lawrence River, Quebec City and its historic Old Town offer an oh so French setting that is filled with European styled streets and architecture. Become immersed in the French-Canadian culture as you climb the city staircases connecting century’s old neighbourhoods. Take a stroll along the Dufferin Terrace near the Chateau Frontenac as you enjoy the panoramic views of the St. Lawrence.
If you’re looking for the quintessential sea side village, then look no further than Canada’s eastern most provinces, New Brunswick and Newfoundland. These Atlantic seaboard provinces provide charming coastal towns and country hamlets with a decidedly English feel. Enjoy the scenic beauty and maritime history of Halifax and St. Johns, two provincial capitals known for their warm hospitality and intimate appeal. Whether it’s a whale watching excursion, an Atlantic fishing trip or simply walking the lovely city streets, Canada’s Atlantic coast cities offer a host of fun filled outdoor adventures and scenic diversions.
