Pukaskwa National Park – Parks Canada
Pukaskwa National Park is the only wilderness national park in Ontario and we’re happy to say it’s located in Algoma Country. Pukaskwa encompasses 1,878 square km of magnificent beauty with its vistas of Lake Superior and the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield. It is truly a special place. Explore the shores of Lake Superior and witness the powerful waves along the sandy beaches and wild shore. Bring your camera as there are many opportunities to view wildlife and bird watching. Visit the Anishnaabe Camp to share cedar tea and bannock with a local elder, participate in the Fire Circle and learn the ways of life, culture and nation.
The Coastal Hiking Trail is 60 km of wild wilderness on Lake Superior north shore offers many opportunities for backpackers as there are a number of different hikes of varying distance and skill levels. The Coastal Paddling Route is a rewarding challenge for seasoned paddlers.
