Autumn Waters: Cruises In the Great Canadian Wilderness Just North of Toronto

Take a tour of the region’s spectacular waterways this fall and experience some of the most brilliant foliage you’ll see anywhere in Canada.

There’s something about viewing Mother Nature’s annual fireworks from the deck of a touring boat that can’t be beat. Passengers enjoy floating along at a gentle speed while captain and crews take the vessel across open lakes and into smaller channels; and the reds, yellow and oranges that light up the shoreline trees are intensified even more by their reflection in sparkling blue waters. It’s an experience not to be missed, and a unique adventure to embark on with friends and family this fall.
