Artists Getaways in Algoma for Plein Air and Studio Workshops.
It's no secret that Algoma is a haven for photographers, painters and artisans because of the area's inspiring landscapes. Canada's Group of Seven began here; the group painted hundreds of locations that are still untouched today.

A Lake Superior sea kayak trip begins with Naturally Superior Adventures.
As the nose of my sea kayak sends a ripple across the mirror finish off Lake Superior's northern shore I start singing Gordon Lightfoot's Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. This is not unusual for me when paddling the big lake. While floating in a tiny craft over massive water I think it's a means of keeping me on guard. The line "The lake it is said never gives up her dead..." resonates deeply as I…
