Discover Great Lakes Canada

Between the lakes Superior, Huron, Erie, Ontario to the south, and the Hudson Bay and the James Bay to the north, Ontario is a province surrounded by water. The southern point of Ontario, between lakes Huron, Erie and Ontario, combines numerous natural and touristic attributes. The Saint Lawrence parks include, for example, the Upper Canada Village, an exemplary reconstruction of a village in the 1860-67s, and also the park's thousand islands. In all, 23 islands and some small islands, over more than 50 miles, with a varied vegetation. Mountain crests, submerged when the glaciers withdrew, the islands are accessible by car or boat, and offer hiking, water sports, and an unusual environment. On the Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach remains the largest freshwater beach in the world, with its 9 miles strip of paradisiacal sand. The lakes Huron and Superior are real interior seas. Bordered by forest, they have magnificent beaches and lie alongside various hiking trails. The Pukaskwa national park offers glorious landscapes along the northern bank of Lake Superior.
