Canada's leaf-peeping season is short, sweet and as vast as the country itself. From vineyards at harvest time to vast maple forests, the magnificent colors of autumn enhance the landscape.

Traveling by train is a great way to see the foliage and VIA Rail Canada's Windsor-Québec City Corridor has multiple daily departures. It's ideal for a day trip or overnight getaways.

Travellers with more time may select from VIA Rail's signature transcontinental service including The Canadian (Vancouver to Toronto), The Ocean (Montréal to Halifax) or The Chaleur (along Quebec's magical Gaspé Peninsula).
