Train holidays with VIA Rail are a more economical way to experience Canada. Unlike the Rocky Mountaineer which offers daylight only services, the VIA Rail trains operate throughout the day and night getting you to your destination sooner.

From Jasper to Vancouver or in reverse, the VIA Rail service takes about 17 hours and is available through the winter months. VIA Rail offers a range of onboard overnight accommodation options with a selection of berths and bedrooms to choose from on most services.
