Popular Multi-day tours in Ontario

Overview

Ontario is Canada’s most populous province, home to the nation’s capital of Ottawa and the most populous city Toronto. The province is usually divided into two regions, the South’s cities and parks, and the North’s cold winters and thick forests.

South Ontario has plenty of wilderness to explore. This region includes the cottage country area of Muskoka and Algonquin Provincial Park, a popular vacation spot for both locals and visitors alike. Algonquin was the first designated provincial park in Ontario and has long been a popular destination for hikers and canoeists. In the summer you can camp and canoe along the many lakes or enjoy one of the many wilderness lodges. In the winter the park offers dogsledding, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Algonquin has a healthy wildlife population including moose, wolves and a variety of birds.

The mighty Great Lakes are a paddler’s dream location. Kayaking tours on Lake Superior and Georgian Bay offer a chance to explore the coastline. Clear water, protective coves and granite islands make the Great Lakes one of the best kayaking locations in Canada.

North Ontario is considered one of the best fishing locations in Canada. With over 150,000 lakes, rivers and streams all teeming with fish, the NW region of boreal forest, with the Canadian Shield and James Bay is among the most popular fishing destinations in the country. Lake fishing is the most popular adventure in this part of Ontario with opportunities for large northern pike, walleye, lake trout and smallmouth bass. The open spaces and unspoiled wilderness are a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of city life, and draws thousands each year for vacation.
