Northwestern Ontario

Picturesque Thunder Bay is the main centre of Northwestern Ontario and the perfect home base for day adventures. Meet voyageurs, traders and Aboriginal people reliving the drama of the fur trade at Fort William Historical Park, the world’ s largest reconstructed fur trade post. Get out on the water with Sail Superior. Marvel at spectacular 330 ft (100 m) deep Ouimet Canyon, home to rare Arctic plants or hike to the tip of the Sleeping Giant rock formation. Discover the powerful cataracts of Kakabeka Falls, the ‘Niagara of the North.’

Driving west, visit Quetico Provincial Park, one of the great canoeing and camping destinations in the world. Drop a line in pristine waters and troll for northern pike. Enjoy a tasty walleye shore lunch. Relax on the Grace Anne II Yacht and Lodge at the remote Lake of the Woods. Or get adventurous and book a float plane for a fly-in fishing experience at a remote fishing lodge such as Wilderness North. Make sure you stop at Kenora, with its waterside parks.
