See all of our Most Popular programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Has anyone from the September trip received the e-mail list? I have not and am wondering if someone can send it to me? Kay

We are on the Oct5 trip. Wondering how to pack for the train. How did other couples do their packing? Should we use one bag together for the train since only one fits in the compartment or bring nylon zippered bags and each pack one for the train?

Good question -- we read this as being 2 small bags each with sizes in the information distributed

Richard Godfrey Sep 26, 2014 at 06:01 PM

Yes, it does say 2 small bags each but the double train compartment only holds ONE small bag.
James Conroy Sep 27, 2014 at 11:59 AM

I believe the two person roomettes include a toilet and wash basin. In a pinch, you could probably stow a bag in that area. If not, my wife may find herself out in the hall...just kidding.

Oct 12-24 trip will be in Jasper the 19th and 20th, during the month long Dark Sky festival -- http://www.jasper.travel/dark-sky-festival-2014 for info. -- Orionids Meteor Shower on 20th--- but missing the total lunar eclipse (8th) and partial solar eclipse (23rd) [Don't know how they schedule those to occur during the festival]

I will be arriving on Sept.7 on United #4413 at 4:29 pm. Please let me know if you are interested in sharing a cab.
Margaret Rioux Aug 06, 2014 at 02:02 PM

Thanks for the offer, but we're coming in by Greyhound bus. Also, it's the wrong trip - we're in October. Have fun though...
Jim Isaak Sep 19, 2014 at 08:06 AM

we are arriving via greyhound on Oct 12th from Manchester NH


Margaret Rioux Jul 28, 2014 at 01:45 PM

We are doing the Oct. 5 trip & I made the extra before/after arrangements today. However... the Montreal hotel is full for the night of the 4th - our bus gets in at 6:05pm & we were going to come up a day early. Is it ok if we arrive around 7pm? If not, is there a suggested nearby hotel?
Thanks!!
James Conroy Aug 03, 2014 at 11:10 AM

Margaret, it's been our experience that late arrivals can be accomodated. Although its nice to be there for introductions, you'll get to know everyone over the course of the trip. See you in Montrael.
Margaret Rioux Aug 28, 2014 at 01:38 PM

Good news!! I kept checking the Montreal hotel website & an available room popped up! So we don't have to come late after all. Poutine, here we come!


James Conroy Jul 13, 2014 at 01:33 PM

Anybody joining us on the October 5 2014 trip?
Sally McIntosh Jul 13, 2014 at 02:35 PM

You are going to love it! I would so go again if given the choice!

Re: hair dryer. You can buy a really small travel hair dryer and just put it in your overnight bag. I have never ridden Canadian trains, but on AMTRAK, I get a deluxe bedroom (with a shower) and they all have electrical hookups in your bedroom. I expect a roomette would too. I would consider getting the largest bedroom you can on the train, even the deluxe ones are pretty small and going across Canada is a long way. You can easily pack 3 days worth of things in a carry-on. Just some toiletries, undies, socks, couple of blouses, a pair of pants, sweater etc.
