About

Recommended for:
Natural world | Self-drive

Beginning with the bright lights and big-city buzz of Toronto, this fly-drive journey brings you through the very best wilderness regions in Ontario. From the quaint charms of Niagara-on-the-Lake – gateway to that iconic waterfall and some of Canada's most notable vineyards – you'll head off the beaten track to explore the magnificent landscapes of Georgian Bay, Manitoulin Island and Killarney Provincial Park. You'll also spend two memorable days on the shores of Lake Huron, with everything from optional scuba diving to glass-bottom boat trips showcasing the unique nature of Fathom Five National Marine Park.

Day by day itinerary

Days 1-2
UK to Toronto

Begin your holiday in relaxing fashion with included airport lounge access before your daytime flight to Toronto and transfer to your city-centre hotel. Then, on day two, head out to see the sights of this vibrant city whose melting pot of cultures and numerous attractions make it a joy to explore. Be sure to visit some of Toronto’s world-leading museums and art galleries with the excellent Royal Ontario Museum hosting exhibits that range from contemporary art and culture to science and natural history.

Stay: Le Germain Toronto (Superior)

Day 3
Niagara-on-the-Lake

Collect your hire car and follow the curves of Lake Ontario to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a peaceful base for taking in the sights of nearby Niagara Falls. Here, an included Adventure Pass will let you enjoy its headline attractions; there’s the classic Hornblower Cruise and Behind the Falls adventure, or you might choose to splash out on an optional helicopter cruise to see its crashing torrents from above.

Stay: The Pillar & Post (Superior)

Days 4-6
Blue Mountains

Travel north to the pretty town of Blue Mountains on the shores of Georgian Bay. Then, spend the day at a nearby mountain resort where year-round fun ranges from downhill skiing in winter to scenic summertime hikes.

Days 7-8
Tobermory

Drive along the pretty shores of Lake Huron to Tobermory where you might choose to hike the famed Bruce Trail to take in the Niagara Escarpment’s rugged beauty or explore the craggy shorelines and old-growth forests of Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Days 9-10
Manitoulin Island

Take the ferry to Manitoulin, the world’s largest freshwater island. Beautiful and utterly remote, its a place of jagged granite outcrops, hidden runes and out-of-the-way communities with names such as Sheguiandah and Wikwemikong. You'll have two days here, so perhaps look to head out on a hike, taking in waterfall-dotted forests, or try your hand at fishing along sparkling rivers and on crystal-clear lakes. There's also sailing, golf and horse riding in summer, while the winters sees everything from snowmobiling and skating to cross-country skiing making the most of heavy snowfall. 

Stay: Manitoulin Hotel

Days 11-12
