Canada

Via Rail Canada transports passengers from one end of the country to the other. The "Canadian," which goes from Toronto to Vancouver, passes through valleys and mountains, with the beauty of the route so legendary that the train is featured on the Canadian $10 bill. The "Ocean" is another extraordinary ride. It goes from Montreal to Halifax and is so named because of the breathtaking views of the sea it affords passengers.

For a more leisurely experience, the Rocky Mountaineer has been listed as one of the most beautiful trips in the world.
