Discover the signature landscapes and natural attractions that make this province so uniquely Ontario.
Our famous natural wonder is Niagara Falls and there are so many ways to enjoy the splendor. Beyond that, the nature offerings are awe-inspiring! Ontario is home to very different and distinct landscapes, formed and connected by waterways. With 250,000 lakes, 100,000 kilometres (60,000 miles) of rivers and 3,000 kilometres (2,400 miles) of coastline forming the shores of four Great Lakes, it's not surprising the Indigenous people named this place Ontario, believed to mean "shimmering waters".
Each fall, the landscape becomes a colourful tapestry ablaze with golden hues, crimson reds and fiery oranges.
