Summer in Ontario: The high season for adventure
Wildlife, whitewater and warm sunsets that last late into boreal evenings are what summer in Ontario is all about.

nature is the theme in the regions of Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie, Côte-Nord and the Îles de la Madeleine. From Tadoussac east to Blanc-Sablon, the entire Côte-Nord region features exceptional sea kayaking. Guides and boat rentals are easy to find. So too, it should be noted, are the whales.
Thunder Bay: Natural attractions around every corner
Thunder Bay truly has it all. Its thriving waterfront serves as a welcome mat for a lake that offers endless boating possibilities. The hills, canyons, rivers and lakes that surround the city are a paradise for hikers and anglers.
