Independent Packages are a great option if you don't want to have a Tour Manager onboard helping with the small details.  We plan out the trip for you and provide a lot of useful information, tips, excursion ideas and even restaurants we have enjoyed in the past. While there is an itinerary to follow, when you are overnighting in cities and towns, you are on your own to explore the sights as they fit your tastes and interests.

Rail Travel Tours guests on our Independent Packages will receive a copy of the CANADIAN RAIL TRAVEL GUIDE to enjoy while on their rail journey with us and keep for future trips. (While supplies last)

All aboard for an exciting and informative ride. The new Canadian Rail Travel Guide is like having your own personal tour guide to ensure you get the most out of your time on Canada's scenic rail routes.
This Conveniently-sized book is filled with essential information including: mile-by-mile descriptions of points of interest, locations of communities along the rail routes, route histories, overviews of destination attractions, contact information and addresses for arranging overnight accommodation, and more.
Extensively researched, the Canadian Rail Travel Guide contains approximately 150 detailed colour maps and photographs of all the rail passenger routes across Canada. With a special section on everything you need to know before you go, you won't want to plan a rail trip without it.

For each of the tours, you will see additional tags that identify the Season the tour takes place - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, or 4 Seasons and the Accessibility of the tour:

Easy accessibility open to all. Designed with everyone in mind, no matter their mobility. Minimal amount of walking with some stairs to climb.
