Canada is abundant with impressive sites, whether it’s the breath-taking natural beauty or the vibrant cities. However you’re looking to spend your holiday, chances are you’ll be on the lookout for some great photo-taking opportunities. Well, you’re in luck – this country is full of them.

Nature lovers in particular are in their real element on Canadian rail holidays. There are plenty of stop-offs that provide excellent views of the diverse landscape, particularly if you get the chance to visit some of the country’s national parks. Read on for more information about two of the most stunning parks you can visit on Canadian rail holidays.


Known as Canada’s largest national park, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is not to be missed on your trip around this fascinating country. Venturing across the beautiful grasslands you’ll no doubt comes across some of the area’s natural wildlife. Small mammals inhabiting the area include marmots and beavers, but you may also see slightly larger creatures such as moose, mountain goats, bears and elk.

Since many Canadian rail holidays give guests plenty of time to explore these areas at their leisure, you’ll be free to spend as much time as you desire admiring the local wildlife and taking photos.


An equally stunning natural space, Yoho is also often visited on rail tours. If you’re hoping to spot some wildlife, you can look out for black and grizzly bears, lynxes, deer, mountain goats and a whole host of other mammals roaming around their natural habitats. You may also get the chance to spot some of the area’s birdlife including golden eagles, thrushes, finches and hawks.

During your tour of the area you’ll be taken to Yoho’s main highlights, from the sparkling Emerald Lake to the enchanting Spiral Tunnels… you’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. Again, you will have more than enough time to explore at your leisure, so you can head back to your favourite parts of the park if you wish.

Why Choose Canadian Rail Holidays?

Travelling through the country on its network of railroads is the best way to see various parts of the diverse landscape over the course of a singular holiday. Canada is so vast, it’s almost impossible to make the time to see all of its best attractions, but railroad getaways allow you venture far and wide – and much more so than would be possible by road. Plus, holidays such as these often visit a wide variety of locations, so you can see all the highlights without having to find transport between each destination. It’s a win-win.

Canadian rail holidays that include visits to national parks are fantastic getaway options for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. Get up close to native animals, admire the breath-taking beauty of your surroundings and explore at your leisure – what could be better?
