Rail Excursions

Agawa Canyon Tour Train

One of the most popular train tours in Northern America is the famous Agawa Canyon Tour Train that departs from Algoma’s largest municipality, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. This one day rail excursion transports riders along 114 miles through the magnificent wilderness of Algoma. The train travels over the towering trestle at Montreal River, alongside remote northern lakes and rivers and through granite rock formations to the Agawa Canyon. Once the train reaches the Wilderness Park, passengers can explore the Canyon on foot. Nature trails lead to cascading waterfalls and there are spots to picnic. The Lookout Trail is the most challenging and impressive: take the 300 stairs to the viewing platform where you’ll have a panoramic view of the entire Canyon.

  • Tour train schedule begins at the end of June and runs seven days a week to mid-October.
  • You can buy tickets online or book a tour train package at www.agawatrain.com

Passenger Rail Services

Let the railway get you on track to a true wilderness adventure. There are many lodges located along the rail lines in Algoma. Each lodge provides an experience as unique as their locations. Just load up your gear in a baggage car, grab a comfortable coach seat and then be whisked away through the remote wilderness of our region. The remote lakes are home to a wide variety of fish species: brook trout, northern pike, walleye.

If you’re looking for a relaxing vacation these lodges also offer excellent opportunities to explore nature. Kayak or canoe the calm waters, pack your camera to photograph nature and widlife, or capture the beauty by canvas and paint. Lodge experiences range from rustic to first clas. Prepare your own meals, or enjoy the pampering of a full American Plan. Your hosts will cater to all your needs.
