Spend the morning relaxing in the mountain town of Jasper before boarding VIA Rail Sleeper Touring Class to Vancouver. Travel back in time to the days of classic rail travel. The original stainless steel ‘streamliner’ railcars (made famous by the ‘Canadian’ in the 1950) are totally refurbished with air conditioning, a café car, lounge car, and access for all on board to the dome car. Leaving Jasper National Park, travel the ‘Yellowhead’ route past the sprawling grandeur of Mount Robson, then follow the mighty Thompson River all the way to the Fraser Valley and the coastal city of Vancouver.

Exclusive to Sleeper Touring Class:

By day, sit back in comfortable armchairs and enjoy the stretch out comfort of your very own accommodation. At night, attendants will transform your quarters into cozy bunks or bedroom. Guests have access to the Park Car, always at the tail end of the train, whose tapered shape gives the car its distinctive look. Enjoy complimentary tea and coffee or, in the evening before dinner, complimentary hors d’oeuvres. In the Dome you’ll feel the true essence of travelling by train where scene after memorable scene sweeps by. This evening retire to your Sleeping Car where a comfortable bed awaits you.
