The train of Le Massif de Charlevoix has started its spring-summer season on the 140-kilometre route between Quebec City and the resort town of La Malbaie in Canada. Created from restored 1950s railcars, the train runs along the St Lawrence River and passes waterfalls, seaside towns and mountain scenery. Same-day return rail packages include the Escape to La Malbaie, which leaves Montreal at 9am and returns at 8.25pm. The package costs $C275 ($265) and includes sightseeing at Baie-Saint-Paul, breakfast and a four-course dinner. It's also possible to stay overnight along the route.
