Sault Ste. Marie

Embrace a Real Northern Experience - Choose Your Next Adventure!

Sault Ste. Marie is a city that cherishes its roots. Known as "the Soo" in English and Bawating in Ojibwe, this is an original meeting ground for Indigenous peoples.

Located in the centre of the Great Lakes region, the city boasts a vibrant waterfront full of shops, brewpubs, and restaurants, an amazing downtown, and a parade of summer festivals that celebrate the diverse cultures making the city what it is today.

In addition to our scenic city, we are also the gateway to world-class outdoors. In the heart of the Canadian Shield and on the shores of both Lake Superior and Lake Huron visitors can enjoy four-season adventures with biking, hiking, snowmobiling, and fishing. 

Experience all the amenities of a modern, urban city, without foregoing the quaint charm and warmth of a Northern Ontario community. We have been called the Gathering Place for centuries, join us and find out why.

The Agawa Canyon Tour Train

The beauty of the Agawa Canyon is undeniable. Experiencing it aboard the Agawa Canyon Tour Train is almost indescribable. This one day excursion through the heart of the Canadian wilderness takes you over towering trestles, around pristine northern lakes and through ancient granite rock formations before gradually descending 500ft into the canyon. It truly needs to be seen to be believed.

Canadian Guided Fishing

Experience high caliber fishing in the legendary St. Marys Rapids with your own angling expert, or fish year-round for some of Canada’s most sought-after species in the numerous lakes and rivers in the Algoma Region. Choose from full or half-day guided packages. All equipment, rods, reels and bait provided.

Please note: A valid Ontario Fishing license is required and can be purchased in town upon arrival at the Sault Ste. Marie Trading Post, the Ontario Tourist Information Centre, or online here.
