Things to Do
Algoma Country offers adventure, culture, history and the great outdoors as attractions for locals and visitors. Escape into some of the most spectacular wilderness in Ontario on the famous Agawa Canyon Tour Train. There are many scenic lookouts that can be accessed by nature and hiking trails, and our region’s touring routes along the coastline of Lake Superior. Located throughout the region are cascading waterfalls of varying size; some of which inspired paintings by Canada’s Group of Seven.
Take a selfie in front of the most photographed monument in North America, the Wawa Goose, at White River’s Winnie-the-Pooh statue, the Loon Dollar Monument in Echo Bay, or the giant Algomy Red Muskoka Chair in Thessalon. These are just a few of the fun and quirky big roadside attractions you’ll find here.
Learn our rich, cultural history at regional museums, galleries and national historic sites. Our cities and towns host fun and exhilarating events throughout the year from art festivals and tours, music festivals and concerts, fishing derbies, drag/stock car races and winter carnivals.
You’ll find plenty of shopping at locally-owned boutiques, trading posts and specialty shops, antiques and major shopping centers.
Feed your inner foodie! Explore fine dining options, Canadian favourites and food trucks, and restaurants serving up old favourites with a twist.
