Embark on a wilderness adventure of a lifetime to Northern Ontario. Our travels will take us 1,000 miles North by Motorcoach, Ferry and Train.
Chi-Cheemaun Ferry – With a name that comes from the Ojibwe word for “big canoe”, the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry has been a staple of Georgian Bay for over forty years. Our motorcoach will travel aboard the ferry with us between the ports of Tobermory, Ontario and South Baymouth, Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron saving us hours of travel time on the highway!
Polar Bear Habitat – A must visit in Cochrane, Ontario! The Polar Bear Habitat is dedicated to, and setting the highest standards for the conservation, care and well being of polar bears. Located on five acres of northern Ontario terrain, the Polar Bear Habitat is now the largest one of its kind in the world.
Polar Bear Express Train – Venture to the wilds of the north as we travel aboard the Polar Bear Express Train from Cochrane to Moosonee. Tilt your seat back and listen to the low roll and rhythmic click-clacking of the world famous Polar Bear Express Train as it transports us through a vast, impenetrable wall of black spruce and tamarack. The train runs along the Arctic Watershed, crossing historic highways of the once busy fur trade. You will see the many sights along the rail, such as hydroelectric dams, isolated homes and perhaps even some wildlife.
Moosonee & Moose Factory – Located on the edge of the Arctic, the Town of Moosonee was originally settled in 1903 as a fur trading post. Getting to Moosonee is half the fun! All travelers arrive by train or by plane. Once we arrive to Moosonee, a local guide will join us as we travel to Moose Factory by boat taxi.
North Bay, Ontario – North Bay is situated on the sparkling blue shores of Lake Nipissing. This community dates back over 100 years as fur traders, miners and loggers settled here.
Sunset Dinner Cruise – Cruise into the northern vistas of Callander Bay aboard The Chief Commanda II, , capped off by one of Lake Nipissing’s spectacular sunsets, returning to the glowing skyline of North Bay. Enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner while on board.
