 OAKLAND, November 12, 2008---Train Holidays is proud to announce a novel and exclusive train program for Spring 2009, our one-time ‘Canadian Panorma’ that combines a journey across Canada aboard the last classic passenger train in North America, the legendary ‘Canadian’ featuring a five-night visit to the Canadian Rockies in addition to deluxe hotel stays in Niagara Falls, Toronto and Vancouver, offering our passengers the best of Canada with its greatest cities and the Canadian Rockies, all in one leisurely holiday. Guests enjoy the classic journey across Canada, in comfort and elegance aboard the beautifully restored art deco splendor of the CANADIAN paired with an escorted holiday that features not only plenty of time to enjoy Niagara Falls, Toronto and Vancouver but with complete sightseeing, a tour manager, stylish dining, transfers and much more.

             Our program begins in Niagara Falls on May 14th  with an overnight stay at the Sheraton at the Falls Hotel, a choice location with plenty of free time for enjoying this lovely city.  We have included sightseeing in Niagara Falls and a visit to quaint Niagara on the Lake before our arrival in Toronto the following day.  In Toronto, our guests enjoy a two-day visit to this exciting city, staying at the Five-Diamond rated Hotel Intercontinental with plenty of free time for shopping, sightseeing and a special welcome dinner special is included at the stylish Canyon Creek Grill, another premium dining experience included in the package.  We then board the vista-dome streamliner CANADIAN at Toronto Union Station for our three-night journey west to Jasper in the Canadian Rockies.  Our passengers enjoy ‘landcruising’ in the superb ‘Silver & Blue’ class First Class sleeping car accommodations, fine dining in the last real dining cars in North America (all meals on board are included), the famous ‘Park Car’ with its upper level vista-dome, the round-end ‘Bullet Lounge’ and the swank ‘Mural Lounge’ for cocktails, a grand way to cross the continent.

              At Jasper, guests enjoy an overnight stay along with visits to Maligne Lake and Maligne Canyon before a spectacular tour of the Rockies including the stunning Columbia Icefields Parkway from Jasper to Banff. At Banff, we offer the rare luxury of a four-night visit nights along with complete sightseeing that includes Lake Louise, Yoho National Park, seldom-visited Emerald Lake and a visit to the famed Banff Hot Springs.  A highlight of our visit to Banff is a special dinner at Le Beaujolais, a favorite of the Royal Family and a gustatory treat. This departure offers the Rockies at the perfect time of the year, without crowds and with Spring wildflowers and blissful vistas.. The final stage of our cross-Canada journey is a final night aboard the CANADIAN between Jasper and Vancouver with daytime viewing of the Rockies from the vista-dome cars, the most scenic way to tour this area.  Upon arrival at Vancouver our guests enjoy an overnight stay at the Five Diamond-rated Hyatt Regency Hotel with a city sightseeing tour and a special Farewell Dinner before traveling home by train or air.
