1 Niagara Falls

One of the most celebrated tourist attractions in North America, this thunder of foaming water is spread over two falls – one American, one Canadian.

2 Niagara-on-the-Lake

With its antique clapboard houses and immaculate gardens, this is one of Ontario’s prettiest towns.

3 Bayfield

All leafy streets and elegant homes, the lakeside hamlet of Bayfield is a perfect place to unwind.

4 Fathom Five National Marine Park

Clear waters and shipwrecks make for some outstanding diving.

5 Georgian Bay Islands

Ontario at its most beautiful – crystal waters studded with pine-dusted islands.

6 Ottawa

Amiable capital city, with a lively restaurant and café scene, plus a clutch of outstanding museums and galleries.

7 Algoma Central Railway

Arguably the best of Ontario’s train rides, from Sault Ste Marie deep into the northern wilderness.
