You may not be able to take the Hogwarts Express, but you can ride the Canadian Pacific Railway through Banff National Park and feel like a wizard. Winding through the wondrous and wild terrain of the Canadian Rockies on a wintery day is enough to make you believe in magic. Passenger train the Rocky Mountaineer carries you past Banff’s alpine lakes and coniferous forests -- and it’s far more comfy than riding a broomstick. Watch the Bow River fly by from your window as snowflakes fall. Look out for fantastical creatures. All aboard!
