How to get from Banff to Vancouver or Ontario

Jump to last reply

Hi. I am planning a surprise trip for my husband next July / August and hope to stopover in Canada on the way to London from NZ. This trip is top secret so I can't ask him at present what he woud like to do. However, he is a train enthusiast and I have always wanted to go on a train trip through the Rocky Mountains as well as visiting Banff, so it would seem logical to do this if possible. I have looked at the trip from Vancouver to Banff, which would suit us. Would love any comments / recommendations for this trip if possible, please.
Another 50+ years desire of mine has been to visit Brantford in Ontario where my great-uncle and his wife lived after emigrating from England early in the 1910s. They used to write to me and send me First Day covers when I was a little girl. Does anyone know if you can easily get there from Banff or do we need to return to Vancouver and fly? Would really appreciate some help, please. Thanks.
Dot
