The Group of Seven was a community of Canadian artists in the early 20th century who connected with the country’s rugged environment through a unique style of landscape painting. The work of the Group of Seven, along with associated artists, has come to represent a distinct, globally recognized, Canadian artistic identity. Art lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike are invited to visit some of the iconic locations and landscapes that inspired these artists of the past.

Stand in awe at the beauty of Algoma and Lake Superior’s North Shore. Board the Agawa Canyon Tour Train and ride the route travelled by the Group of Seven when they painted from the box car in the early 1900’s or visit the Lake Superior Provincial Park, a section of the Interpretive Visitor Centre is dedicated to the Group of Seven.

Hike under the quartz rocks in the La Cloche Mountain range. Paddle to site of The Jack Pine in Algonquin Provincial Park and find Serenity in the Lake of the Woods.

Follow a unique outdoor trail that features over 90 incredible mural replicas showcasing Group of Seven works through Muskoka and Algonquin Park.  

Discover more ways to channel the artist in you and plan your own Group of Seven inspired adventure.

WildPlay’s MistRider Zipline to the Falls

On four parallel ziplines that face the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls, riders dangle from a precarious 67 metre (220 foot) high vantage point.  The thrill adds thrill to the breathtaking panorama as gravity floats riders 670 metres (2,200 feet), at speeds of 70+ kph (40+ mph), along the edge the vast Niagara river gorge.
