Best train journeys in Canada

The Canadian Rockies Route on The Rocky Mountaineer is on the bucket list of many Australia. I've done the journey and can certainly see why. The scenery will give your camera a workout. Think glacial lakes, snow-capped mountains and gushing rivers.

And the British Columbia-based company is the largest privately owned luxury tourist train company in the world.

Canada is a vast country, with a long history of railway travel.

If you love the unrushed experience of traversing through the countryside by train, there are plenty to choose from. Train travel covers a range of budgets. You can certainly travel in luxury or if you're counting pennies, there are less costly options too.

Here are 10 train journeys in Canada to put on your wish list.
