The essence of Algonquin Park, Ontario’s oldest (dating to 1893) is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by canoe or on foot. It indeed features a pristine wilderness area cherished by outdoor enthusiasts. Its 2,900 square miles of unspoiled forests and streams were a source of inspiration for landscape artist Tom Thomson in the early 1900s. For the most part, the park has remained unchanged since it opened in 1893. Moose, bears, wolves, and birds still thrive here.

To visit Black Creek Pioneer Village is to journey back in time to discover life in early Ontario. The Village is an example of a typical crossroads community found in the Toronto area during the 1800's. As a living history museum, the Village offers one of the richest heritage experiences in the Toronto area. Black Creek Pioneer Village is more than a collection of buildings and artifacts. Here, you will become immersed in the lifestyles, customs, and surroundings of early residents who built the foundations for modern Toronto and Ontario. Spanning more than 30 acres of pristine country landscapes, the Village is a living history experience featuring heritage buildings originating in communities across south central Ontario that have been faithfully furnished with original furniture and artifacts.

In the buildings, and surrounding gardens and farmyards you will find historical interpreters and trades people in authentic period dress who will demonstrate and explain for you how people lived, worked and played in mid 19th century rural Ontario. Some places describe the past. Black Creek Pioneer Village brings it to life. Over the past 150 years, most families have moved away from the land and into cities, leaving behind a way of life that defined early Ontario.

But four decades ago, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority created a small agricultural community at Toronto’s northern edge that honours the ways of our early settlers. Today, Black Creek Pioneer Village offers you a fascinating journey into the past – into the way people lived before cars, digital technology and the dominance of urban culture separated them from the land.

Black Creek is a working village, typical of those established in south central Ontario between the 1790s and the 1860s. At Black Creek you are invited to escape the modern world, and experience Ontario’s rich rural heritage.

“Chimo” is an Inuit term meaning, “I am friendly”, or “Welcome”. It is also the name of our mascot, the giant Polar Bear who greets our visitors at the entrance of town. As Chimo will tell you, Cochrane has a lot to offer any traveler 12 months of the year!

The Town of Cochrane is located in the heart of the Great Clay Belt of North Eastern Ontario. The town site was laid out in 1908 on the Old Overland Packet Trail to Moosonee. Today by road, Cochrane is 720 kilometres north of the City of Toronto and 725 kilometres east of Thunder Bay. Cochrane is located in the Arctic Watershed. All rivers from here flow north into James Bay and eventually into the Arctic Ocean. The large rivers that drain this section of Ontario provide many recreational opportunities such as canoeing, fishing and camping. As well, they provide ample hydroelectric power.

Come swim with the bears at the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat and Heritage Village. This facility features a unique wading pool attached to the polar bear pool to allow children and adults to “swim with the bears”. Revisit history with a stroll down a re-created 1900’s street at the Heritage Village. Visit the second weekend in August and see the village come alive with costumed “villagers” and working equipment.

In the summer, we have many attractions and activities for everyone. One summer adventure is a ride on the Polar Bear Express; a train ride to Moosonee and Moose Factory, the Hudson Bay Company’s main trading post in 1673. The ride mirrors the travels of the fur traders and the military strategist, Des Troyes, who conquered James Bay in 1686. Other attractions include the Tim Horton Event Centre, Gardiner Ferry, Cochrane Railway and Pioneer Museum and Tim Horton Museum. In the centre of town is a deep, spring-fed lake called Lake Commando.

Emsdale Ontario, along with the other small town of Novar, boast one the Highlands and Ontario's greatest natural attractions; Brooks Falls, which is perhaps the greatest example of an untouched wilderness waterfall that is undisturbed by modern development, yet is easily accessible.
The waterfall, on McNaughton's Creek, in the hamlet of Foresters Falls is small and pleasant. The best time to view the waterfall is just after the spring thaw when the creek swells and crashes over the dam and rugged rocks below. The creek begins from Bigson's Lake and flows 11 km to the Ottawa River. The waterfall on the creek was the reason for the development of Foresters Falls by Oliver Forester in the early 1840s. A dam was built over the waterfall to operate a sawmill and a gristmill. The first pioneers were mainly English, Irish and Scottish and by the late 1800s Foresters Falls was a thriving village with many businesses. A fire in the 1870s burned most of the village but left the dam and the bridge intact. Today, be sure to visit the Ross Township Museum, which is housed in the former fire hall. Authentic displays include a general store, one-room schoolhouse, railroad room, and reading room. The restored log home of James Ross stands alongside.

Northern Ontario’s portion of the Canadian Shield is covered by boreal forest, characterized by dense strands of conifers and deciduous trees that can handle the cold, like birch, alder and mountain ash. This beautiful and rugged land has remained virtually untouched by civilization. Forests, mountains and lakes exist here as they have for millions of years.

Opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and camping abound in this pristine forest environment. All you really need to do is pick a trail or park and head out to enjoy the great outdoors.

Located at the centre of the Great Lakes and framed by the St. Marys River, Sault Ste. Marie is literally surrounded by water.

To the North of the city is Lake Superior or Gichigami (Big Water) as it is called in the Ojibwe language. The coast of Superior is dotted with long stretches of beautiful sandy beach, ideal for swimming or sunbathing.

To the southeast of Sault Ste. Marie is Lake Huron, the second largest of the Great lakes. The St. Marys River connects these two lakes via the Sault Locks, the busiest lock system in the world. The Locks allow over 120,000 ships per year to travel between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes. The rapids of the St. Marys River are located right in Sault Ste. Marie and make for great viewing and fishing!

Thousands of smaller lakes and rivers can be found all over Northern Ontario and offer unlimited opportunities for fishing, kayaking and canoeing.

The Sheguiandah reserve is within the boundaries of the territory described by the Manitoulin Island Treaty of 1862 - Treaty No. 94. The reserve was unofficially established in 1860 by a group of Sheguiandah who had accepted the Anglican faith, and it was first surveyed in 1867.

Manitoulin Island has a wide range of activities and adventures for the young and old. Check out the activities and events on Manitoulin Island.

Have you ever wanted to experience Manitoulin Island from the Water? This is your opportunity to take in some of the most breathtaking scenery that can only be enjoyed by boat. Travel the traditional canoe routes of the Anishnaabek as your experienced First Nations guide shares the history and legends of the majestic Mnidoo Mnis.

Manitoulin Island's picturesque back roads are popular with cyclists. Vehicle traffic is generally light, although cyclists are warned to let ferry traffic get well ahead of them on Highway 6, and to watch out for unique features like logging trucks, slow-moving farm vehicles, and the occasional cattle drive.

South Baymouth welcomes thousands of visitors each year to Manitoulin – many of whom arrive daily on the ferry, the Chi-Cheemaun, which translated from Ojibwe to mean “big canoe.”
The ferry has become synonymous with Manitoulin and crowds of tourists still line the harbour to watch as the vessel makes its way into harbour, announcing its presence with a loud blast from the horn, with its latest cargo of eager tourists ready to explore Manitoulin.
The name given this community by the Island’s early inhabitants was Sagradawawong, “the outlet”, which, like its English name, identifies the community’s important location at the mouth of South Bay.
In the late 1880s the first Europeans came here as commercial fishermen, and the community soon became a significant fishing station and south shore port. The first public building was a church, built in 1890, for both Anglican and Presbyterian congregations, and later also used as a school. Some of the houses built by the first fishing families are still standing.
The introduction of regular ferry service between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island in 1932 brought tourists in their automobiles to South Baymouth, making the small community an important tourist destination. South Baymouth continues to make tourists welcome. There are stores and restaurants, galleries and gift shops, tourist accommodation and picnic areas to entertain and delight visitors.
St. Williams is a small hamlet and fishing community in Norfolk County. The lakeside community is located 30 minutes south of Pinegrove. St. Williams is about 30 minutes from both Simcoe and Tillsonburg. It is a village with a population of approximately 400 people. Backus Mill is located close by and it is popularized as being one of the only mills left standing after the War of 1812. Tourists can enjoy Backus, just outside of St. Williams on the way to Port Rowan, all year round with hiking, sledding, camping and discovering the history of the mill. A railroad line once passed through St. Williams but was decommissioned in the 1990s. Their public school was closed in the early first decade of the 21st century and their grocery store became a mini-mart. There was also an old folks' home that was shut down and the old fire hall that is an antiquated building in St. Williams. Summer vacation properties are seen on the southern end of the main street after winding down the hill. A modest beach is located near the vacation houses along with a pier for docking small boats. Swimming is possible from July to early September.
Sudbury’s modern history was set in the hard rock of the Canadian Shield when Sir John A. MacDonald’s vision of a transcontinental railroad carved its way westward and established the settlement of Sudbury Junction in 1883. While the area’s dense forests had attracted thousands of loggers, in the long run, Sudbury would owe its rapid growth and prosperity to the discovery of the rich minerals embedded in the Sudbury basin.

While mining remains a major influence on the local economy, Sudbury has evolved into a dynamic and diverse regional capital. Sudbury is situated within traditional Ojibwe lands and is a bilingual city with the third largest Francophone population in Canada outside of Quebec. Together with people of many different ethnic backgrounds, including people of Italian, Finnish, Polish, Chinese, Greek and Ukrainian ancestry, Sudbury’s multilingual and multicultural fabric is one of the most diverse in Canada.

With a population of 158,000, the City of Greater Sudbury is the largest city in Northern Ontario. There are a total of 330 freshwater lakes within the city – more lakes than any other municipality in Canada. The Sudbury Basin, 27 km (17 mi.) wide, 60 km (37 mi.) long and 15 km (10 mi.) deep, is believed to have been formed by a meteorite impact 1.8 billion years ago.
