About this trip

Step back in time and board “The Canadian” train for an overnight journey into the Canadian Rockies. You’ll enjoy great made to order meals as you glide from the west coast through the mountains, relax in the lounge car while you watch the sunset, and be rocked to sleep by the motion of the train. You’ll never forget this 50’s era train experience: nostalgia. From Jasper to Banff, you’ll be mesmerized by the scenery of our mountain national parks.

VIA Rail is Canada’s classic overnight rail passenger service. Aboard “The Canadian” train, you’ll step into a golden past and relive Canada’s history. A truly nostalgic experience, VIA Rail includes made to order meals in mid-century rail dining cars, glass domed observation cars, and private sleeper cabins to enjoy Canada’s scenery.

Your Adventure Leader: Margo Howe Bailey

Hi! I’m Margo from Orlando.  I have spent most of my life helping people.  Whether it was as a Mom, a teacher, a friend or a Nanny to my grandkids.  I love people and I love to make special times for them.  I love the details that make a special time, a very special memory.

I have traveled to six continents, and to 55 countries. Every place I have been has been special because I had stories to share when I got home. Stories about people, stories about new foods, and sounds that I heard.  Stories about nature, the colors and the unique flowers that I saw.  Travel turns you into a story teller.

Margo- latte lover, cookie baker, party planner, and monogrammer. I can’t wait to meet you and share our passions.

A wonderful location for an end of summer getaway. Our lodging was located perfectly for evening sunsets and daytime relaxation. A lovely breakfast each morning was made by Tricia. The refrigerator had some much needed items. The coffee pot was ready for the early risers. Details were communicated in a timely fashion. Very nice small group getaway. Oregon was a bucket list destination for me.
