VIA-YLG partnership yields new rail packages

VIA Rail Canada and Yankee Leisure Group have announced a strengthened partnership which will expand tourism packages on VIA Rail for North American travellers.

Yankee’s brands include Amtrak Vacations, Unique Rail Journeys and Yankee Holidays.

Among the new itineraries are the Canadian Rockies vacation package, which visits Vancouver, Victoria, Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff and Calgary; the Cross Canada vacation package, which begins with stops in Toronto and Niagara Falls before departing on The Canadian for a three night journey to the Canadian Rockies and the towns of Jasper and Banff, followed by a stop in Vancouver (travellers can then choose to extend their stay and visit the city of Victoria or travel to any of the cities that Amtrak services in the U.S.); and the Capitol to Capitol program, which travels between Ottawa and Washington D.C., with stop in Toronto, Montreal, New York and Philadelphia.

According to VIA, the new itineraries will operate on most days and in any direction throughout the year. Customers can also choose their level of accommodation both onboard VIA’s trains and for hotels at the various stops.
