Ah, summer in Canada! This magical fleeting moment between the long winter months somehow never feels long enough. Maybe because of this, I always feel so much pressure to make the most out of the hotter months. And what better way to appreciate our beautiful country than seeing it by train?
Absolutely nothing, that's what! The smooth ride, the unparalleled views, the convenience - nothing can beat travelling by train. And if you're down to discover every corner of this gorgeous country comfortably gliding along a railroad, then you're going to love this next bit of news.
In honour of its 40th anniversary, VIA Rail will actually be hosting one seriously awesome contest: in celebration of their history, the company took a piece of their past (AKA, a now-defunct VIA Rail train that's actually traveled over 6 million KMS), melted it down and turned it into 40 metal tickets.
Cool, right? But wait, there's more! Each ticket will actually allow two people to take a panoramic train ride from coast to coast, or to any one destination offered by VIA Rail. All you have to do? Follow this link, and sign up by Sunday for your chance to win!
Which means you and a friend can get to any spot you want in the country, for free, taking in all the beautiful views from VIA Rail's panoramic train... for totally free!
That’s right, your travel by train will be covered thanks to VIA Rail, to any one stop you want throughout Canada. You’ll only be spending your hard earned money on local delicious treats... and maybe a posh hotel or two!
But you're probably going to want to enter ASAP, because the contest ends June 17, 11:59pm Pacific time. And trust, you're going to want to check this contest out - seeing Canada up close and personal through the views of a panoramic train is a truly incredible experience!
