Scintillating Ontario in summer

Canada’s most diverse province explodes with fun, excitement and spectacular festivals in the summer months. Check out these 'must do' experiences...

From vibrant communities and majestic waterfalls to water-based adventure, Ontario’s distinctive cities and regions brim with energy in the summer months. 

Iconic Niagara Falls

Summer is the prime time to marvel at the breathtaking Niagara Falls and nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake. Take to the skies for aerial views of the falls with Niagara Helicopters or sample local vintages at over 100 distinctive wineries.

Niagara City Cruises takes you on a journey of a lifetime; feel the incredible power (and the mist!) of one of the world’s most stunning natural wonders. Be immersed in interactive exhibits at the newly restored historic Niagara Parks Power Station, including a tunnel to an observation deck at edge of the falls.

Culture and cuisine in Toronto

Asone of the most multicultural cities in the world, Toronto is a foodie’s dream, filled with unique and eclectic neighbourhoods.

Celebrate the culinary skill and artistry of Toronto chefs at MICHELIN-starred restaurants. 

Explore bustling Kensington Market, which overflows with vintage boutiques, mom and pop shops and quirky fusion food. Visit historic St. Lawrence Market, one of Canada’s oldest markets – take a guided gourmet tour and be sure to try a Peameal Bacon sandwich!  

MUSKOKA ALGONQUIN IMAGE

Majestic Muskoka

Popular for its beauty, charming small towns, and crystal clear waters, Muskoka is a perfect destination for your clients’ summer adventure.

Nearby Algonquin Provincial Park provides the perfect blend of stunning nature and diverse wildlife. Rent a kayak or canoe and explore the interior of Ontario’s most famous park – if  you are lucky, you’ll spot moose. Elsewhere, a Bog to Bottle Tour at Muskoka Lakes Farm and Winery is so good it’s been designated a ‘Signature Canadian Experience’. 

OTTAWA IMAGE

Canadian celebrations in Ottawa 

Ottawa really comes to life in the summer with a host of outdoor activities (including kayaking in the heart of the city!), open-air festivals and much more.

A reflection of Ottawa’s laid-back vibe is the weekly (free!) summer yoga session every Wednesday on Parliament Hill. 

And Ottawa is the place to celebrate Canada Day! Each July 1, join Canadians decked out in red and white and enjoy the stunning fireworks display on Parliament Hill.
