Travel Details


A journey in VIA Rail Prestige class is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before: as the iconic Canadian train chugs along the historic 4466 km route that connects Toronto to Vancouver, you’re treated to luxury class service and amenities.

Welcome to Prestige

As soon as you step onto the VIA train, you’ll be whisked away to a world of slow travel, where the journey is as important as the destination. Are there more efficient ways to get between Toronto and Vancouver? Absolutely! But none will rival the level of service, style and scenery of travel by rail.

You’ll be greeted by your personal concierge with a glass of bubbly to celebrate the start of the trip. During the journey, your concierge will ensure that you have all you need for your comfort and will be the one to make your priority reservations in the dining car, as well as the park car and the panoramic car during peak season.

Your Prestige Cabin

Your home for the journey will be in the Prestige Class car. Inside your spacious cabin, you will find a daytime configuration of a modular L-shaped leather couch facing a huge window. In the evening, your concierge will transform your cabin into a comfortable hotel-style room with a Murphy bed for two that is easy to access from both sides.

Your cabin also includes a private bathroom with a shower, as well as a mini-bar and a flat-screen TV with a good selection of video options so you can sit back and relax with a movie or show.

Food & Beverage in Prestige

In the dining car, delight in the included three gourmet meals a day — each magically created by chefs in the train’s tiny kitchen using locally sourced ingredients. You’ll appreciate the attention to detail in the dining car — with crisp white linens and printed menus — all set against the backdrop of the huge windows that showcase the jaw dropping landscape outside as you dine.

As a Prestige guest, you will not only have priority reservations in the dining car, but you will be treated to a pre-dining appetizer service and all-inclusive beverages (both alcoholic and non) as well as unlimited snacks. Your concierge will be available to assist you with any food or beverage needs.

Things to Do in Prestige

As the Canadian makes its way east or west (depending on your choice of direction), you will be treated to unforgettable changing landscapes that unfold in front of you: rural farmland, lush forests, the rocky outcrops of the Canadian Shield, prairie fields, city lights and the snowy peaks of the Rockies. This is the longest train journey in North America — a bucket-list travel experience for many — and is sure to leave you with lasting memories as you slowly make your way across the country.

As a Prestige guest, you will also have priority seating in the popular Park car, which is located close to your Prestige cabin. This car contains the Mural Lounge, with a bar, the Bullet Lounge and the scenic top-floor Skyline area. This is a great place to meet fellow travellers, read a good book or look out at the ever-changing scenery. You might even spot some iconic Canadian wildlife out the huge windows.

The journey can be done from Toronto to Vancouver or Vancouver to Toronto — the choice is yours! The train covers 4466 km, linking two of Canada’s biggest cities, with stops in Sudbury, Sioux Lookout, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Jasper and Kamloops along the way.
