VIA RAIL - The Canadian Rockies: nature on a grand scale

On your Canadian Rockies vacation, begin with the city of Vancouver, located on the Pacific coast and snuggled at the foot of the Rockies. This city offers wonderfully contrasting scenery to lovers of sea and mountain.

As you progress on your Canada vacation, you'll definitely want to make a stop in Jasper, the starting point for trails exploring the heart of the Canadian Rockies and Jasper National Park. Or for a more marine flavour, take a train trip to Prince Rupert to discover truly wild country on the coast. Outdoors enthusiasts can also heighten their experience by seeing the Canadian Rockies from the vantage point of a canoe or kayak.

BREWSTER - Canadian Discoveries

Contemporary motorcoach travel offers luxury comfort, security, variety, and fun. Our routes take you to the very best in western Canada’s scenic and historic places. And, a motorcoach can stop anytime, anywhere!

Brewster's Canadian Discoveries approach to vacation touring is unique.  Instead of tour escorts, you'll have the services of our courteous and knowledgeable driver/guides.  Instead of spending your whole vacation with one group, you'll board different coaches and meet new friends.  Independent vacations allows you to design and personalize itineraries, schedules and budgets that match your needs perfectly. All vacations can be combined with train travel, self-drive vacations or guided excursions.
