Agawa Canyon Tour Train
One of the most popular train tours in Northern America is the famous Agawa Canyon Tour Train that departs from Algoma’s largest municipality, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. This one day rail excursion transports riders along 114 miles through the magnificent wilderness of Algoma. The train travels over the towering trestle at Montreal River, alongside remote northern lakes and rivers and through granite rock formations to the Agawa Canyon. Once the train reaches the Wilderness Park, passengers can explore the Canyon on foot. Nature trails lead to cascading waterfalls and there are spots to picnic. The Lookout Trail is the most challenging and impressive: take the 300 stairs to the viewing platform where you’ll have a panoramic view of the entire Canyon.
- Tour train schedule begins at the end of June and runs seven days a week to mid-October.
