Experience the Panama Canal and its living history as you travel the isthmus railroad through beautiful flora and past lovely Gatún Lake.

You are seated in a standard railcar.

Depending on the canal scheduling, you may see the enormous vessels that transit the canal, and you’ll pass through towns and villages named for the people who built this ‘path between the seas’.

Enjoy the beautiful rain forest scenery as you cross the Continental Divide from ocean to ocean in just an hour.

You’ll pass the working locks and some of the old Canal Zone area that has now been returned to the people of Panama.

At the rail station, board a bus for a trip out to the causeway that forms the entrance of the Panama Canal.


This excursion will depart from Gatún Lake and will end in Colón, where you will re-board the ship.
