Adventure travel in Ontario Canada is a natural experience. Adventure getaways are around every lake (250,000 Ontario Lakes) or trail. Ontario is one of the most diverse provinces for an adventure vacation be it spring, summer, winter or fall– from “wilderness adventure” to “soft outdoor adventure”. The best travel adventure is north of Toronto, where the population of wildlife species is more significant, and the natural setting more dramatic. Lake Superior to James Bay, Algonquin Area, or Georgian Bay all offers exceptional natural individual or family travel adventures.
