Epic is a word we hear that best describes the driving tours in our part of the great province of Ontario. It’s all about location and with major airports located in our biggest cities, the ease of access to the amenities a traveler requires and our breathtaking landscapes, you have the perfect backdrop to plan a tour. Dotted throughout the north are countless small communities, provincial and federal parks and what we like to call our famous “Northern Hospitality”.
Have you ever encountered an eight hour drive where it is recommended that you take at least three days to enjoy it? Well this is the Northshore of Lake Superior. You will travel between two of our largest cities from Sault Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay, both full service communities including major airports and car rentals available. This drive allows you to experience the changes between Eastern Mixed Forest to the Boreal Forest all while enjoying the changes in elevation with the Cambrian Shield and the beautiful views of the largest fresh water lake in the world, Lake Superior.
Northern Ontario with its unique waterways was home to important canoe routes for Indigenous people. Northern Ontario’s Indigenous history is key to the growth of Canada as an important part of the fur trading routes that saw the development of communities that still exist today. Rich in this long history our stories don’t stop there, this was the beginning. Famous painters such as the Group of Seven, captured our landscapes onto canvas, famous composers such as Glenn Gould sought the serenity of the North for inspiration. Many of our communities histories tell the story of lumber, mining and exploration. Northern Ontario is a place of discovery, beauty and learning.
