Algoma Country Trip Planner
Welcome to Algoma Country!
Fringed by Lake Huron and Lake Superior, Algoma Country attracts anglers, canoeists, kayakers and hunters. Sault Ste. Marie, situated at the joint of the lakes and the hometown of Canada's first female astronaut Roberta Bondar, offers opportunities for every visitor. Summer brings hiking and kayaking excursions, while winter offers numerous groomed trails ideal for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. History buffs and forest firefighters converge on the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, where exhibits take a look at the history of forest fire protection in Canada. The Algoma Central Railway features single-day excursions of the Agawa Canyon, and its surrounding forests and waterfalls during warmer months, or the region blanketed in white on the winter Snow Train. Visit Winnie the Pooh's birthplace of White River, or the former gold-mining town of Wawa. Several provincial parks, such as Pancake Bay Provincial Park or Batchawana Bay Provincial Park, offer adventures such as swimming, hiking, or staying in one of many campgrounds.
