Lake Superior And Thunder Bay Travel Guide

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 are an 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. At Thunder Bay the Sleeping Giant provincial park is a big drawcard, named for the shape of a rocky outcrop at the site that extends into Lake Superior. Another popular attraction is the Amethyst Mine Panorama, which is a working quarry that offers walking tours, as Thunder Bay sits on one of the largest Amethyst deposits in the world.
