SOUTH EASTERN ONTARIO


View a map of this region.

Laced together by the sparkling St. Lawrence River, Rideau Canal, Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario, this region serves up all the ingredients for a perfect getaway. On its shores you’ll find fascinating history, quaint villages, inspiring art, live theatre and gastronomic delights.

On its waters, enjoy world class sailing and scuba diving, pristine beaches and leisurely cruises. Inspired by the original Mohawk name ‘’Kaniatarowanenneh’ (big water), this beautiful stretch of Ontario is entirely linked by water — from Cornwall on the St. Lawrence River to Lake Ontario’s Kingston and on to the Bay of Quinte. In between, it’s dotted by hundreds of lakes and winds its way north along the UNESCO World Heritage designated Rideau Canal.
