Rail trips to Whistler are less about getting from A to B than they are opportunities to relax, sit back and enjoy some of the world's most breathtaking scenery.

The train ride along this spectacularly scenic route features canyons, mountain ranges, glacial lakes, turbulent rivers and waterfalls. The trip really is all about sightseeing: travelling speed averages just 50kph/30mph and the train moves even more slowly through particularly scenic areas.
