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 “All aboard the Agawa Canyon Train!” The morning starts with a delicious breakfast at our hotel. Then we are headed to Algoma Central Railway for a 10-hour excursion into the Agawa Canyon. Enjoy passing Fall landscapes as we snake through ravines and cross gorges through towering trestle bridges on this quintessential Canadian experience. The 114-mile journey showcases the rugged beauty exclusive to the region, and that was the inspiration for the Group of Seven artists. At mile 102, the rail line hugs the top of the canyon wall as we descend 500 feet over the next 10 miles to the floor of the AgawaCanyon. Once we arrive on the Canyon floor, we’ll have an Included Picnic Boxed Lunch and an incredible opportunity to photograph scenic cliffs and cascading waterfalls. (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.
