Back to nature in Ontario

Ontario is so much more than its capital, Toronto. Encourage clients to head north to explore the wild side of the province…

Northern Ontario is big. Within it sits large cities and small towns, national parks home to sleeping giants, canyons navigated by trains and the largest of the Great Lakes of North America – and that’s only the start of it! But as big as it is, clients can still have intimate moments and make lasting memories.

Northeast Ontario

It’s not every day you come across a shipwreck in a lake, but divers can explore 22 of them beneath the waters of Lake Huron, within the Fathom Five National Marine Park. Non-divers can still get a glimpse of some wrecks from the surface by renting a kayak. As well as making a great viewing platform, it’s also one of the best ways to view the hidden coves, channels and forests that line the shore.

From one big lake to 50 smaller lakes, Killarney Provincial Park offers canoeists impressive views of the white hills of the La Cloche range, which can also be explored as part of a hiking or biking trail. 

For city slickers, Sudbury, Northern Ontario’s largest city, is known for its arts, music and outdoor recreation. Families will love Science North, an interactive science museum featuring an IMAX theatre and a digital planetarium. There’s also the chance to stare at the world’s largest nickel – why not? 

Algoma Country 

Sault. Ste. Marie is the start of a multitude of scenic routes heading into the Agawa Canyon Wilderness Park and onwards to Lake Superior. The Agawa Canyon Tour Train will transport you into the heart of the Agawa Canyon, with stops allowing passengers to get up-close to waterfalls, experience scenic vistas from various look-out points or relax by the Agawa River. The train ride is especially spectacular in autumn, when the changing leaves are ablaze with red and gold hues. 

Back in town, clients can learn about forest fire protection at the Bushplane Heritage Centre, and climb aboard the collection of planes that once kept these forests safe from harm. 

Northwest Ontario

A scenic drive from Sault. Ste. Marie to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior marks the start of the northwest, where visitors have their pick of parks and endless vistas. 

Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes and forms part of the Lake Superior Provincial Park. The changing scenery means that no two pictures are ever the same, with cliffs, beaches, river valleys, waterfalls, inland lakes, and the Algoma Hills in the background. Sail Superior offers daily tours of the lake, giving access to hard-to-reach places and secluded lunch spots.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park and Quetico Provincial Park also boast big views and outdoor pursuits such as hiking, boating and camping under the stars.
