The Canadian Pacific Railway is more than just a transport network. Connecting Vancouver in the west with Montreal in the east, this engineering marvel has had a profound influence on the geographic and cultural landscape of Canada for over 100 years.
Canadian Pacific Railway was built to physically link the vast provinces of Canada, which were unified for the first time in 1867. Despite the scale of the task, the railway network was completed six years ahead of schedule, and its completion led to the growth and development of some of Canada’s most iconic destinations and national parks.
Travel to Canada with Scenic, and you’ll have the unique opportunity to travel on the Canadian Pacific Railway as part of the Rocky Mountaineer railway journey.
