Your journey begins at the Algoma Central Railway depot in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where you will board our regular passenger service for a day-long rail adventure that combines the rugged mixed forests of the Canadian Shield, experienced on the Agawa Canyon Tour Train, with the boreal forests of the Great Clay Belt region. In marked contrast to the mountainous Shield country, the Clay Belt region, home to the lordly moose, is a combination of level coniferous forests and great inland lakes teeming with northern pike and walleye. « less

We truly enjoyed the lovely train ride and time spent at Agawa Canyon. I wouldn't have minded another half hour at the Canyon. The train was comfortable and pretty empty. The trees were just changing in early September.

We had did this trip to Agawa Canyon twice before, but not at this time of the year and like maybe 25-30 years ago. The train has been up dated and... More

We took this fall trip and the colours were fantastic. I would recommend this trip to everyone at least once. It was amazing.

Great for first time train riders. In the gift shop (both on the train and in the canyon are the same-the shop is basically transferred off the train, and the shop in the Canyon closes 20 minutes before the train leaves the canyon. Very accommodating for people who are disabled! They have a lift for wheelchairs. If you order a... More

The ride up to the canyon was approximately 4 hours but the colors were spectacular. I would recommend this trip more for the more mature crowd that can appreciate beauty. It is a long ride and I believe the younger crowd would probably find this trip boring. When we arrived up in the canyon I felt it was rushed with... More
