Lake Superior And Thunder Bay Travel Guide

Lake Superior © Kevstan

The rugged, rocky north shore of Lake Superior, the world's largest freshwater lake, provides Ontario with an exciting tourist attraction where visitors can discover deep chasms, plunging waterfalls and towering granite cliffs carved by the ancient glaciers. There are untold numbers of lakes, rivers and forests in the region, which is a fisherman's paradise, a history buff's haven, an artist's inspiration and a delight for naturalists.

The main centre in the region is the city of Thunder Bay, located on the Trans-Canada Highway, in the heart of Native American country. This city is the western terminus for the St Lawrence Seaway. The Seaway is the system of locks, channels and canals that connect the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean, an important system of waterways for international trade, but also a playground for recreational boating activities.

Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes of North America and Ontario shares this vast expanse of water with the US states of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. The shores of the lake have been inhabited since 10,000 years ago and evidence of some ancient communities can be found on the Canadian side, although the main attractions for visitors are the rugged shoreline and beautiful wilderness landscapes.
