Who Doesn’t Love the Sunny Skies

Whether you plan to spend all your time debating canoeing vs. kayaking – we can handle both – or looking for camping sites, boating fun, North Bay fishing or fantastic hiking trails nearby,
you’ll enjoy our northern approach. What about your dream of cycling Ontario? North Bay has you covered there too. Everything from birdwatching to ATVing, golfing to trails for running – even some of the best tourist attractions in Ontario – we have your summer fun waiting, here in North Bay.
