Canada Rail Vacations’ newest packages give travelers the possibility to see the grand railway hotels, a collection of historic luxury hotels located throughout the country. These iconic landmarks, many of which have been designated as National Historic Sites, are famous for their architectural grandeur, elegance, and exceptional hospitality.
As Canada Rail Vacations explains, traveling to Chateau Lake Louise on the Rocky Mountaineer or taking a cross-country rail tour aboard The Canadian transports travelers back in time and gives them the opportunity to stay in elegant hotels that have hosted celebrities, dignitaries, and royalty for over a century.
The glass-dome coaches of the Rocky Mountaineer are custom-designed to offer passengers a panoramic view of the breathtaking Canadian landscape. Canada Rail Vacations’ 12-day Rocky Mountaineer Circle Train Adventurer takes travelers through Western Canada’s Rocky Mountains from Vancouver to Lake Louise.
The round trip includes five full days on the train and an overnight stay at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, one of Canada’s most famous and spectacular grand railway hotels.
The Canadian Nostalgic Eastbound tour from Vancouver to Toronto aboard The Canadian gives history lovers the opportunity to relive the golden age of rail travel. Passengers enjoy five full days on the 50’s era train and an overnight stay in Toronto’s iconic grand railway hotel, the Fairmont Royal York.
The grand railway hotels were built to impress, explains the company. These famous landmarks incorporate a range of architectural styles, including Chateauesque, Victorian, Renaissance Revival, and Edwardian. The brainchild of William Cornelius Van Horne, General Manager of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the late 1800s, the hotels were designed to encourage tourists to explore Canada’s vast hinterland by rail.
Aside from their beauty and spectacular settings, the remarkable castle-like structures helped connect the country from coast to coast and played a pivotal role in shaping Canada’s national identity.
“All the Fairmont accommodations were outstanding. The Rocky Mountaineer train was exceptional. Both from the aesthetic, the staff, the food, everything was amazing, there was nothing you could want more. The scenery in Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper was incredible, and so often we found ourselves speechless,” said Stephanie K, about their family’s Canadian Adventurer trip.
With over 27 years of experience, Canada Rail Vacations specializes in tours including Canada’s Grand Railway Hotels across the country, offering trips through the Canadian Rockies, trans-Canada travel, and customized sightseeing packages.
