Canadian train trips and tours!

Riding the canadian rail

From SheKnows Canada
Canada's love affair with trains dates back to the Champlain and St. Lawrence Railroad which first opened in July of 1836! Since then, train trips and tours have been a popular way of taking in the breathtaking and unique scenery our nation has to offer, especially in the mountainous and more northern regions which cannot easily be accessed by other means. Here are a handful of talked about Canadian train trips - ride the rails!

Agawa Canyon Tour

Agawa Canyon Tour

Dubbed as "A One Day Rail Adventure into the Heart of the Canadian Wilderness," the Agawa Canyon Tour runs about 185 kilometres north of Sault Ste. Marie. Rail travelers will experience a ride over breathtaking train trestles, and take in the incredible scenery of the Canadian Shield region, including the granite rock, lakes, rivers, and forests.

Tour guides will ride along with you to share knowledge on the sights and history. Best part -- the train coasts 500 feet down into the canyon, where travelers can spend time hiking, on the lookout platform, shopping in the souvenir car, or letting the kids stretch their legs in the small playground and picnic area! You may see wildlife too! Be sure to book early for fall colour tours which are extremely popular.
