Montreal’s annual International Jazz Festival is nearly upon us (June 26-July 5). To celebrate, Canada’s Train Hotel is hosting a number of round-trip journeys from New York to take in the sounds. Starting from New York-Penn Station, passengers aboard the Piano-Bar Wagon will feast on gourmet meals while being serenaded by Ohlala’s Marie Michele.

Over each leg of the rides—each journey is four days long—passengers get a front row seat to three hours of live jazz music and stunning views of the Hudson River Valley, Mettawee River, Lake Champlain, and downtown Montreal. For travelers looking for a little more luxury, the Train Hotel is also offering Exclusive Jazz Railcar packages, which include four nights accommodation for the festival, three tickets for one of the festival’s concerts, daily breakfast, and priority to the Open House and Nightcap Heineken series at the International Jazz Fest.

You can book a ride to the festival (spanning June 25-29), from the festival back to New York (July 2-6), or in the fall from October 2-18. Round-trip tickets start at $350 per person. You can also enter to win a trip for four to Montreal (details here). For more information, check out the Train Hotel website.
