Moosonee Or Bust: The Road/Rail Trip Of A Lifetime
For those who have never ventured far north, traveling to the Town of Moosonee or Moose Factory could be a mysterious prospect. Both communities are nestled along Moose River which connects to James Bay - Ontario's only seacoast. The communities served as port for one of Ontario's oldest settlements, and the original Hudson's Bay Company.
Getting there adds to the air of mystery. The town is only accessible by plane, and Polar Bear Express passenger train - which makes regular departures from Cochrane, ON.
Northeastern Ontario Tourism's marketing team couldn't be more excited to travel to Moosonee/Moose Factory in search of adventure, experiences and hidden gems.
If you've been considering a trip to Moosonee or your curiosity has been officially piqued, join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (Hash tag #MoosoneeOrBust) to see candid photos and stories from our travels.
