Discovering the true nature of Ontario & Quebec
After a short family visit in Toronto, this party of 4 wanted to discover the natural of Canada. And they did!
From City slicker to Voyageur
Toronto is the urban cherry on the nature cake with three distinctly different regions (Bruce peninsula, Algonquin Park and Mont Tremblant) to explore by motorhome. After switching to a rental car in Montreal, a fairly remote northern log cabin awaits for further soaking in the scenery.
This route can be extended to include more northern locations aloing the Great Lakes to add wilderness flavour to the mix.
