Day 1 Toronto
Touch down in Toronto following your trans Atlantic flight and settle into your chosen hotel for one night. Spend the rest of the day exploring this cosmopolitan city.
Day 2 Toronto – Thunder Bay
Start the day with a flight across the beautiful Ontario countryside and great lakes of Canada, to the northern city of Thunder Bay. Set on the shores of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world, and within easy reach of national parks and thousands of kilometres of hiking trails, it is easy to see why the city is known as one of Canada’s great outdoors cities. You will be met on arrival by one of your tour guides and transferred to your hotel for the night. In the evening you’ll enjoy dinner on the waterfront before setting sail on Lake Superior at sunset with a guided cruise of Thunder Bay’s harbour and surrounding area. Halfway through the tour, the anchor is set and passengers are welcome to open their own bottle of wine, sample an assortment cheeses, crisps, olives and local chocolates and watch the sunset. If a stop at the lighthouse is made, passengers may take a brief walk around the breakwall and rugged lighthouse grounds.
Day 3-6 Thunder Bay – Miminiska Lake
This morning, you are transferred to the airport for a private flight from Thunder Bay to Miminiska Lodge runway. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by your hosts and checked in to your accommodation. Main lodge rooms have private facilities or choose one of the private cabins set along the shoreline, with separate bedroom, living room, bathroom, wood burning stove and your own decking on which to relax. You have a welcome orientation in the main lodge to help you plan your stay in the Ontario outback. Over the next 4 days, you will get to craft your perfect wilderness adventure. Guided activities include paddle excursions (canoe/kayak), hiking, fishing (lake, river, and night fishing, licences are payable locally), First Nations interpretive explorations of the land and history, arts and crafts, yoga, and stargazing. Independent activities such as stand up paddle boarding, a natural sauna, bonfires, and nightly entertainment are also part of the experience. Breakfast (starting on day 4), lunch, dinner, snacks, and alcoholic beverages with dinner are included. Continue with as many days as required.
Day 7 Miminiska Lake – Thunder Bay
After breakfast, depart the lodge by private plane and enjoy a scenic flight back to Thunder Bay International Airport, where you will join your onward flight to Toronto. On arrival into Toronto you can choose whether to extend you stay in Canada further or continue your journey home.Want to alter anything?
