Welcome to one of Canada's most exciting and beautiful destinations. Northwest Ontario is vast: over 60,000 square miles (155,400 km2), but we make it easy to explore. The world's largest freshwater lake, the legendary wild inland sea of Lake Superior, is the anchor for this region. As the Lake Superior Circle Tour highway meanders along 575 miles of shoreline, you'll pass magnificent scenic vistas, historic sites, wilderness provincial parks, sandy beaches, towering cliffs and quaint fishing villages. To the east, along the Manitoba and Minnesota borders is Lake of the Woods, a gorgeous freshwater paradise perfect for fishing and houseboating.
