Touring Routes THAT VAST

Algoma Country is a combination of breathtaking scenery, welcoming communities, great food and fantastic accommodations. It is not surprising that the Grand Algoma Route has been named the top weekend motorcycle tour in Ontario for two years in a row!

The famous Highway 129 has been nicknamed by riders as Ontario’s “Tail of the Dragon” with the miles of twists and turns that follow the Mississagi River. Beginning your tour either in Sault Ste. Marie or Thessalon, we recommend traveling north up the 129 to Chapleau, then the 101 to Wawa. Be sure to take that epic photo in front of the Wawa Goose, before heading south on Highway 17 back to the “Soo”. Get ready to enjoy jaw dropping scenery with the views on the Lake Superior Coastline. Pick your touring route here!
