For those who have never ventured far north, traveling to the Town of Moosonee or Moose Factory could be a mysterious prospect. Both communities are nestled along Moose River which connects to James Bay - Ontario's only seacoast. The communities served as port for one of Ontario's oldest settlements, and the original Hudson's Bay Company. Getting there adds to the air of mystery. The town is only accessible by plane, and Polar Bear Express passenger train - which makes regular departures from Cochrane, ON.   Photo from Mike Jacobs trip to Moosonee Northeastern Ontario Tourism's marketing team couldn't be more excited to travel to Moosonee/Moose Factory this week (October 7-10, 2013) in search of adventure, experiences and hidden gems.  If you've been considering…

Mountain Stream Orchard is nestled in backdrop of the Nor'wester Mountain range south of Thunder Bay
Tranquil Spot Where Apples Grow  High above the Slate River Valley on the rural outskirts of Thunder Bay, where corn stalks march across rolling fields tall and golden waiting to be harvested, is a small clearing of land, tucked amongst native pine forests, where apple trees grow.   The road to the Mountain Stream Orchard winds up into the Nor’wester Mountain range through trees that sport the first blush of fall.   If it were not for the sign propped amid fall wild flowers and spent thistles at the side of the road, it would remain a hidden gem. And as I turn off Oliver Creek Road, down a small dip in the driveway, I think Mountain Stream Orchard just…

Bust out of conventional travel and see your country with new eyes.
No service. For much of the ten hour return trip train ride into the Agawa Canyon, this is what you'll see on your phone -- no service. Take a deep breath. Do not panic. This is completely expected as you are truly heading into an area so remote that many spots you see during the tour are not accessible by car. In our modern world it's hard to believe that such places still exist, but one trip on the Agawa Canyon Tour Train and you're reminded of the breadth and depth of our great Canadian wilderness. Lack of access to our daily distracters -- think Twitter, Facebook, Instagram -- is a good thing, since distraction from the natural beauty that…

"Meandering strips of corduroy-imprinted snow descend the slopes in front of me" The heavy snowfall from last night has tapered off and each snowflake calmly places itself on the freshly groomed base. The clouds slowly begin to separate allowing the sun’s morning rays to reach the tips of the hills rolling off into the distance. My mind is absent of the responsibilities that wait for me at the bottom of the mountain. The ageless beauty of the Northern Ontario landscape captures me and enables me to escape. It is my first run of the day. From my seat atop the peak, I strategically plot my course of decent focusing on each line of the unmarked, groomed trail in front of…
