DAY 1 WINNIPEG – THUNDER BAY, ON Heading east, we follow the Trans-Canada Highway through the beautiful Whiteshell Provincial Park and Lake of the Woods with a photo stop at Kakabeka Falls. Nightfall will find us resting comfortably in Thunder Bay.
DAY 2 THUNDER BAY – SAULT STE. MARIE, ON (2 NIGHTS) The scenery today is magnificent as we continue along the rugged north shore of Lake Superior through areas of dense forests, lakes, rock formations and small towns. En route, we stop at the Terry Fox Monument. Relax and settle in for a two-night stay. (Breakfast included in the morning)
DAY 3 SAULT STE. MARIE Today, we board one of the most popular train tours in North America. Our one-day excursion will travel 114 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie over towering trestles, along pristine lakes and rivers, through granite rock formations, and vast mixed forests of the Canadian Shield. View the beauty of the region through large windows of the newly refurbished coaches. The commentary will inform us about upcoming points of interest and the rich history of the region. Locomotive mounted digital cameras will provide an engineer’s-eye view on flat screen monitors installed throughout the coaches. The train will descend and travel down to the floor of Agawa Canyon where we will have 1½ hours to enjoy our Included Boxed Lunches at one of the picnic areas throughout the park. During this time, you may like to photograph the scenic cliffs and cascading waterfalls or stroll along one of the many walking paths. (Breakfast included in the morning)
DAY 4 SAULT STE. MARIE – MACKINAC ISLAND, MI (2 NIGHTS) A short drive brings us to Mackinaw City, located in the Great Lakes State of Michigan. We will board a hydroplane ferry to Mackinac Island – known as the Bermuda of the north. Crossing the Strait of Mackinac, we get to see the 5-mile long Mackinac Bridge which connects Lower Michigan to its upper peninsula. Upon arrival on the Island, you will feel like you are back in the 19th-century. Since no motor vehicles are permitted, there is an unusual sense of peace. We will savour a Grand Luncheon Buffet at the Grand Hotel. After lunch, we will tour the Island by horse-drawn carriage. We are free to explore the Island on your own: visit an authentic carriage museum, view stunning Victorian summer homes, and photograph breathtaking views. (Breakfast included in the morning)
DAY 5 MACKINAC ISLAND Take a walk through the historic downtown with its fascinating traditional buildings or choose to learn about the island with an optional visit to Fort Mackinac. Mackinac is known for its creamy fudge which you smell and see being made in the many shops along the waterfront. Consider taking a bike ride around the island or visiting the Grand Hotel with its famous 660-feet long front porch.
