Credit Valley Explorer Tour Train on track in summer.

Take a ride on the Credit Valley Explorer and experience the picturesque beauty of the Hills of Headwaters. The 74-km excursion aboard classic rail cars travels along the Niagara Escarpment on a rail route established over 130 years ago. As you sit back and relax in the climate-controlled environment, the stunning views of rolling hills, deep valleys and trickling creeks will take your breath away. Known as southern Ontario’s most scenic rail tour, highlights include the 1,146-foot long trestle bridge spanning the Credit Valley and the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park at Cataract. Enjoy the interpretive commentary on the historical and natural elements of surrounding scenery, while friendly onboard staff serve complimentary refreshments.

Tours run year-round with themed tours available seasonally. Whether you are taking in the stunning fall colours, enjoying a romantic dinner aboard the Twilight train, or admiring the fresh blanket of snow lightly covering the exquisite natural landscape, you are sure to remember your trip on the Credit Valley Explorer Tour Train. Families can enjoy riding the Santa Train  in comfortable  heated, picture-window coaches, with freshly-baked gingerbread cookies & hot chocolate, live musical entertainment and a visit from Santa!
