Journey Through Canada by train


The Future is on Board

At 40, we’re in our prime! Those of you who have reached this milestone know it. In this era of maturity, we can sit back and take stock while still moving forward with the energy needed to complete even more projects. We’ve grown strong thanks to our solid roots and the exceptional work of all our employees who have helped VIA Rail be the smarter way for people to travel over the years. We will continue helping people travel in a safe and sustainable fashion, connecting over 400 communities geographically, socially and ecologically, and asserting the collective project we’re a part of.

Passion Passport is dedicated to the connection of people and communities throughout the world, and we love that VIA Rail has solid roots and an exceptional work ethic, allowing them to solidify their place as the best way to connect to communities throughout Canada.

With the momentum VIA Rail has built, we know they’ll continue helping people to travel in a safe and sustainable way. And we’re humbled to be working with a veritable institution of Canadian connection.

Montreal to Toronto

Our first trip with VIA Rail takes us from Montreal and Toronto to Ottawa. Each traveler will board a VIA train, one from Montreal and one from Toronto, to converge on Canada’s capital for a day of custom experiences. Among them are a private tour of the National Gallery, a food tour of Byward Market and a golden hour sunset shoot atop the Andaz Hotel.
