Unquestionably one of the great Canadian train tours, every moment spent on board the Canadian is unique. The train winds its way through landscapes that will leave you breathless. And because mealtimes should be worthy of such breathtaking views, VIA Rail's on-board chefs offer you every day the kind of culinary experience you would expect from a fine restaurant.

At breakfast, lunch and dinner, you'll be able to savour the best Canadian cuisine with a selection of three specialties served on the dining car's elegant china. The generous lunch and dinner menus include appetiser, main course, dessert, and coffee or tea. You can choose from a selection of beers and red and white wines (available by the glass at affordable prices) to accompany your meal.
