Aspen Crossing is proud to present their new 2016 Train Excursion Schedule!
Now offering 12 distinct travel experiences to share with family and friends!
Experience a train journey through some of southern Alberta’s diverse and historic prairie landscapes. See first hand why photographers have fallen in love with wide open skies that meet the landscape in mesmerizing contrasts!
Located just 39 miles southeast of Calgary, you’ll discover there is always something new to experience at this rural country gem!
The average train excursion is approximately 3 hours onboard a full size moving train on privately owned track. Once onboard, you can explore the train cars and meet fellow travellers. It truly is a small world after all! Some excursions include food/beverages or, there is food available for purchase. Various musical entertainments are just part of the experience and of course a good old fashioned train robbery will round out the fun!
Looking to get out of the city for some outdoor fun, then you’ll appreciate camping at Aspen Crossing! Now offering over 100 sites, from No Service to Full Service our campground also accommodates big rigs with pull through sites. Group shelters are also available for those corporate retreats or family reunions!
Of course, even the best of chef’s need a break from the kitchen! Why not try a different dining experience in our renovated 1887 Pullman dining car, that once belonged to John Diefenbaker? With daily specials and Sunday brunches, you’ll enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, along with delicious fare that will satisfy even the pickiest palate!
Only a short drive from Calgary, it’s an easy scenic drive out to explore the countryside, and if you prefer not to make the drive back, you might consider staying in one of our beautifully converted train-caboose cabins. A truly distinctive glamping experience!
If you can’t find the right something for that special someone, the Station gift shop is set to inspire and wow any discriminating shopper. And of course, as history has shown us, no Train Station would be complete without a greenhouse, proving that horticulture and the railways played a huge part in our prairie history!
