LOVE. TRAVEL. With VIA Rail - it's the perfect pairing this Valentine's Day

MONTREAL, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Mix the classic romance of rail travel with its more traditional definition by enjoying VIA Rail Canada's "Romance by Rail" service this Valentine's Day and beyond. If you are looking for a little European flavour in Montreal or Quebec City, VIA will get you there in comfort. Or for the gift that keeps on giving, be sure to check out VIA's Gift Cards.

VIA's "Romance by Rail" is featured between any two destinations served by VIA's world-renowned Canadian train operating between Vancouver, Jasper and Toronto. The gentle sway of the train, the breathtaking Canadian landscape and the clink of wine glasses help create a romantic and memorable journey.

VIA's "Romance by Rail" service is a couples-only upgrade which includes accommodations for two in a private suite - literally the size of two double bedrooms - featuring a queen-sized bed, two private washrooms, complimentary in-room sparkling wine, fresh-cut flowers and even breakfast in bed upon request. "Romance by Rail" passengers also enjoy access to various lounges aboard the train, including the signature panoramic Dome car, offering 360 degree views of the magnificent Canadian landscape. The cross-country journey takes four nights.  

Delectable regional cuisine served in the dining car's sophisticated ambiance is also included in the price of "Romance by Rail."  A selection of award-winning, all-Canadian wines are also available for purchase to complement the lunch and dinner meals.

VIA's Getaway Packages offer the perfect pairing for that Romantic Getaway. Choose a getaway of one to three-nights stay in a number of urban destinations in Ontario and Quebec, then sit back, get comfortable and let VIA do the winter driving. With a number of winter festivals taking place in February within VIA's Ontario-Quebec Corridor they'll be no shortage of things to do when you get there. For more details visit
