Train-in Fishing

Algoma Country is home to a truly unique experience: travelling to a remote lake via the train! If you wish to take the train, rather than fly, this is the trip for you. The trip begins aboard the VIA Rail “Budd Car” to journey through the remote wilderness in the comfortable surroundings of a modern train coach. Simply load up your gear, relax, and let VIA get you on track to your fishing destination.

Upon reaching your destination, you’ll be greeted by friendly staff who take you to the next step of the adventure. From full-service American Plan lodges to outpost camps or housekeeping cabins. Whatever type of fishing trip you are looking for, it’s located along the rail line!

The lodges along the rail line system can brag about huge northern pike, walleye galore, whitefish, perch, lake trout and brookies! Imagine a shore lunch after a morning of fishing with these offerings. Once your arm is tired from hauling in your catch, many of these lodges offer ways to explore nature. Kayak or canoe the calm waters of their remote lakes. Capture breathtaking wildlife with the shutter click of a camera, or just relax enjoying the quiet and remoteness of your surroundings.

Boarding the train is easy. Travel to either White River or Chapleau. Travelling from Southern Ontario? No Problem! The rail service extends to Sudbury, Ontario. Did you know you can depart Toronto on the world-famous The Canadian arriving in the heart of the Algoma wilderness the next afternoon? This means visitors from Quebec, New York and beyond can leave their cars at home. Simply contact your lodge and they will be happy to guide you through the process of booking your train ticket.

With so many outfitters, cabins and fishing lodges located along the rail line in Algoma, it’s easy to plan a dream fishing or wilderness trip that unforgettable.

Please note VIA Rail does not travel out of Sault Ste. Marie.
