Canada Rail Trips | Canada Rail Vacations

Considered by many as a destinations in themselves, a stay at a luxury Fairmont hotel will complete your Canada train vacation. 

The stunning collection of Fairmont hotels and resorts are more than just places to rest your head – they’re genuine tourist attractions in their own right, packed with stories to be told. 

The Fairmont Banff Springs, opened in 1888 as Canada’s first grand railway hotel, is now aptly nicknamed 'Canada's castle in the Rockies. 

' The Edwardian-era Fairmont Empress in Victoria has stood grandly since 1908, and the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise holds a commanding presence over its lake. 

Each of these, and more, have played host to countless famous names, including John Lennon and Yoko Ono (who recorded Give Peace a Chance at Montreal’s Hotel Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth) and Winston Churchill and Roosevelt, who held wartime strategy sessions at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

Synonymous with luxury, steeped in history and visually breathtaking, a stay in a Fairmont goes beyond mere hospitality – it’s an experience to be treasured
