Canadian Adventure Enthusiasts

Our team lives at and plays at all of the incredible locations that we will share with you

Our team is active! When we are not planning your tour, we are: hiking, backcountry guiding, camping, RVing, skiing, heli-skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cycling, rock climbing, swimming, boating, playing golf, cooking, eating at amazing restaurants, or travelling.

We love Canada and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Our History

Canada Rail Vacations was founded by Martin Flanagan in 1995. He’s been everywhere there is to go in our beautiful country and his exuberance when sharing Canadian experiences with guests only grows brighter with each year! Let us know if you love cycling, and Martin will set you up on a private cycling tour no matter the season. 100% Canadian-owned and operated, we provide unforgettable Canadian vacations for our clients. Whether you want to glide through the Canadian Rockies aboard the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer, travel the entire breadth of North America from coast to coast aboard VIA Rail, or completely customize a tour to chase the Aurora Borealis, we have the tour package you are looking for.

What sets us apart is that we plan every tour individually – we don’t merely re-sell pre-existing tour packages. We are a small, family business that personally books every element of your tour. We take a little more time and pay close attention to detail to ensure that your tour package is exactly what you want. We customize train travel packages with Rocky Mountaineer and Via Rail so that you can experience Canada by rail, your way.

Commitment to Sustainability

Our commitment as a company to donate train trips aligns seamlessly with our mission to showcase the breathtaking beauty of Canada. By extending the joy of travel to those who may not have the opportunity otherwise, we aim to enrich the lives of recipients while also promoting tourism and appreciation for the diverse landscapes that define our nation.

Single Supplement Policy

The prices listed on our website are Per Person and they are all based on “Double Occupancy” which means two people are sharing one hotel room, thus splitting the cost of accommodations each night. The words “Single”, “Double”, “Triple”, and “Quad” refer to how many people are sharing hotel rooms. A double occupancy room is two people in a room. Single occupancy is one person in the room. So if you and your partner will be travelling together, look at double pricing and that is what each of you will pay. Prices for a person travelling alone are higher because the hotel room costs the same regardless if one or two people are occupying it. A person staying in the room by themselves pays for the luxury of not needing to share with anybody.
