2. Pedal through Wine Country

Each train has two dedicated bike cars, making it easy to bring along your own bike. For those looking for a longer bike ride, hop off the train in St. Catharines and pedal to Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) through wine country, or travel with GO to the heart of NOTL and start your cycle from there. Want to rent a bike? Local shops in NOTL also offer bike rentals and handy maps to plan  your route.

With its beautiful patio tucked in the vineyards and summer blooms, you’ll want to linger over a glass of wine here. Inniskillin also offers tours, as well as private experiences that you can book ahead of time, like their rustic luncheon which makes the most of local ingredients.

  1. Sadly there is no Go Train from Hamilton to Niagara-on-the-Lake, if there was I’d be the first one on it.
