One Of Canada’s Premier Outdoor Cities

Thunder Bay’s reputation as one of Canada’s Premier Outdoor Cities is well earned. Located on the shores of the world’s largest fresh water lake and surrounded by the natural beauty of the boreal forest and the Nor’Wester mountain range, it is the perfect place to get in touch with your inner adventurer.


  • Set sail on a 90 minute tour of the Thunder Bay harbour. Get close to the lakers and salties. Look up at the massive grain elevators, pass by a lighthouse, or escape to nearby Islands. 

  • The legendary Sleeping Giant lies on the tip of the rugged Sibley Peninsula near Thunder Bay. Experience the backcountry or follow rugged trails to the top of the giant for unbeatable views of Lake Superior.

  • Step back in time with a visit to Fort William Historical Park, a living history museum highlighting the history of the fur trade and the development of the region.
