With an area larger than Spain and France combined, Ontario features such a varied landscape, climate and culture which makes it a fascinating place to discover by bike or on foot.

From Hudson Bay in the north to as far south as Detroit, Michigan, Ontario actually stretches well below many US states, such as Maine, and includes 4 out of 5 of the Great Lakes as well as climate ideal for wine producing.

For walkers and cyclists, there is much to see and do. Niagara Falls, in Southern Ontario, is the most powerful waterfall in all of North America, and an easy bike ride away from over 70 wonderful wineries.

Forests cover approximately two thirds of Ontario and can be enjoyed in over 300 provincial and 6 national parks including the stunning Bruce Peninsula National Park. The Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath, spanning more than 890km along the UNESCO-designated Niagara Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory.

Manitoulin Island, a short ferry ride from Tobermory on Lake Huron, is the world’s largest freshwater island.

Explore Ontario the active way, on a cycling or hiking tour.
