Mattawa Voyageur Country in the province of Ontario is nestled between the convergence of the Ottawa and Mattawa rivers at the foot of the Laurentian mountain range. Bordering Quebec on the east, Algonquin Park on the south, North Bay to the west, and the wild boreal forests and lakes of the Temiskaming region on the north, we honour the Voyageurs through our love of nature and travel.
Our region is as much a meeting place today as it was in the time of the First Nations and Voyageurs. With access to Ontario’s oldest provincial park, hundreds of kilometers of multi-use trails, great dining and incredible waterways and provincial parks Mattawa Voyageur Country will bring out the explorer in you.
