The Explorers’ Edge is the region of Ontario is one of the most popular four-season travel destinations in Canada.
Home to iconic ‘cottage country,’ a summer vacation here is part of our Canadian cultural traditions. From May to September, visitors arrive for an unforgettable ‘Nature fix’ that comes from being surrounded by thousands of sparkling blue lakes and our lush, green forests. In autumn, the brilliant colours of the changing leaves are second to none in Canada, especially in the iconic woods of Algonquin Provincial Park. And winter turns up the fun as visitors embrace the great Canadian winter, and head out for adventures on the best snow in Ontario.
Here you’ll find plenty of unique adventures, exceptional accommodations, and one-of-a-kind attractions and events. Do as much as you’d like or as little – plan an gruelling expedition or sit on a dock while someone gets you a fancy drink. Bring family and friends or fly solo. Be a weekend warrior or stay for a season.
However you’d prefer to experience the great Canadian wilderness just north of Toronto, you’ll find it here. Easy to get and simply incredible.
