Ontario revealed: the heartland province

From Toronto to Niagara Falls, to Muskoka, to the Thousand Islands: Ontario transports travellers from effervescent urban setting to awe-inspiring landscapes within a matter of a few hours.

Ontario's lake country

Lake Ontario is a region brimming with opportunities for thrill seekers and nature lovers alike. A short journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls brings both to Canada’s most visited tourist attraction. Once the scenery and the charm of the lovely town of Niagara on the Lake have set in, travellers are welcomed to a vast array of attractions further north. Splendid cities adorn the shores of Lake Ontario, the most popular of which is Toronto. The eclectic Kensington Market in Toronto is off-limits to vehicles and utterly welcoming to tourists. Further along the shore, Port Hope is one of Canada’s emblematic four-season destinations and a small heritage community straddling the River Ganaraska on the shores of Lake Ontario.

The Thousand Islands and beyond

Those who visit Ottawa are instantly drawn to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, with its high-tech displays depicting the most important moments in Canadian history, from aboriginal and colonial artefacts to contemporary exhibits that blend a wealth of cultural elements representative of the melting pot that is the Canada of today. Across the Ottawa River, on Parliament Hill, lie the Canada Parliament buildings, flanked by the Peace Tower, a symbol of Canada’s resolution to maintain peace, and a hotspot for Ottawa tourism. Gananoque's Thousand Islands are a waterfront destination like no other. Only four hours from Muskoka, three hours from Toronto and Montreal, and two hours away from Ottawa, this inviting, world-class retreat offers countless outdoor activities, such as golfing, cycling, fishing, and kayaking.
