ride in the world
Between the St. Lawrence estuary and the Atlantic and the sheltered waters of the British Columbia coast,
linked by Canadian Pacific's shining stainless steel streamliner, "The Canadian", and
"The Dominion', there is a variety unexcelled in the temperate zone. Great cities, forests, rivers, prairies,
mining country, the Great Lakes, mountains — the polish of the 20th Century . . .
the romance of an historic past!
Holiday country includes the North Shore of Lake Superior, the Lake of the Woods in Ontario . . . lakes,
rivers — fish and game areas in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta . . .
the magnificent playground of the Canadian Rockies — Banff, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake,
Columbia Icefield, Revelstoke . . . The Columbia, Thompson and Fraser Valleys!
British Columbia, tempered by Pacific breezes, is a sportsman's paradise, forested, game-filled,
with a seabound coast fringed with islands, laced with fjords. Vancouver — end of steel — and
Victoria, the island capital, served by Canadian Pacific "Princess" liners, are picturesque,
modern and hospitable! Princess liners cruise to Alaska.
Canada even offers two nights aboard ship in the heart of a continent. Canadian
Pacific Great Lake liners steam twice-weekly through Lake Huron, the Sault Ste. Marie
canal and Lake Superior as an alternate "inland sea" route for part of this marvellous
transcontinental journey.
Northern Ontario beauties include many fast-flowing streams

The Canadian Rockies, famous as one of the world's most spectacular playgrounds, is an
all-embracing term including the Rocky Mountains, the Selkirks and the Coastal Range of
British Columbia, served by a network of Canadian Pacific services linking the transcontinental
main line — the Banff-Lake Louise route — to the equally scenic, southern, Coquihalla Canyon-
Crow's Nest Pass route — both diesel-operated! Train and bus services open the heart of the
Canadian Rockies through the Okanagan Valley, the Columbia River-Arrow Lakes district
and the picturesque Lake Windermere country. Transcontinental train schedules provide direct
connections for the Southern Canadian Rockies route going or returning so that a complete
mountain holiday can be planned from start to finish before you leave home.
A Canadian Rockies trip by Canadian Pacific is about the most flexible type of holiday you
can plan. You may see the Rockies en route to a seaside holiday divided between Vancouver,
Victoria, Nanaimo and the sheltered waters of British Columbia. You can plan to enjoy the
beauty of the mountains from the luxury of Banff Springs Hotel or Chateau Lake Louise. You
can "rough it in comfort" at Emerald Lake Chalet or Moraine Lake Lodge. You can have a
water holiday on the Arrow Lakes or bask on the beaches of Okanagan Lake. You can make
a round trip of the Canadian Rockies by alternate routes in as little as four days or as long as
you like.
There is good accommodation throughout the Canadian Rockies area and hotels, lodges,
guest houses are available at rates to fit varying budgets.
