TRIP DESCRIPTION

1. BRUCE PENINSULA: the Bruce Peninsula National Park is a U.N.E.S.C.O. world biosphere reserve. It's also part of Ontario's Green Belt (a permanently protected area of stunning green space, farmland, forests, wetlands, and watersheds). It features some of Canada's most beautiful natural sceneries and historic sites, including Cyprus Lake, the Grotto, the Georgian Bay, Fathom 5 National Marine Park, Flower Pot Island and more.

2. TOWN OF TOBERMORY

At the heart of the town of Tobermory is a beautiful marina afloat the crystal-clear, turquoise waters of the Georgian Bay. Its heart is surrounded by local Canadian art galleries, specialist shops like the Kuku Hut, souvenir stores, fish and chips restaurants, coffee shops, and sweet shops.

3. GEORGIAN BAY BOAT CRUISE

A personal favourite, this boat cruise allows you to sit back, relax and soak up the warm summer sun from a long chair on the back of the ship's main deck. Enjoy a Canadian beer with a Wild Alaskan Salmon Burger (another personal favourite) on board the ship's restaurant. The view of the Georgian Bay's endless deep blue horizon, decorated only with wild, uninhabited islands and an occasional lighthouse is mesmerizing.

4. MANITOULIN ISLAND

Included in Lonely Planet's list of "Top 25 Things to Do in Canada", Manitoulin Island is truly a hidden gem in Canada, and one of Ontario's best kept secrets. Falcon Migwans, a member of the M'Chigeeng First Nations community of Manitoulin Island, has helped me devise a tour that will allow you to see the best of Manitoulin Island in half a day.

5. OVERNIGHT CAMPING AT ONTARIO'S #1 CAMPSITE

Saturday night is spent at one of Ontario's #1 campsites. We will camp at a dark sky preserve accredited by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. When weather conditions are appropriate, in addition to the Milky Way and star-dotted sky, lucky travellers will see the Northern Lights (May and September), or the spectacular meteor shower (end of July and August).

6. CYPRUS, GROTTO, FATHOM 5, FLOWER POT

The main and most popular attraction in the Bruce Peninsula Region is Cyprus Lake and the Grotto. When the park is full or sold out (which usually occurs within a few minutes from opening), the alternative plan is to visit Fanthom 5 National Park and Flower Pot Island.

How to find us:Pick-up Point: Marriott Hotel Entrance at 90 Bloor Street, Toronto, Ontario
