The Polar Bear Express: Departing in Cochrane in the morning, arriving in Moosonee by lunch, and back to the start all by 10:00 pm; this express train takes you on a wonderful excursion.

Travelers will be able to experience the picturesque lakes, overgrown forests, waterfalls, and mountains dispersed throughout the Canadian landscape.
The Far North: The far north train journey is an adventurous route to experience the rural arctic areas of Canada.
