Photograph Nature & Wildlife in Sunset Country
Sunset Country in Northwestern Ontario is one of the many great places in Canada where wildlife is abundant. If you love nature and photography, then come for a visit and experience the great sights and sounds we have to offer. Whether it be a bear alongside the road or a rushing waterfall, beauty is everywhere. Have your camera handy and you'll be able to capture many animals and the wilderness we call home.
The joy of seeing wildlife in its natural setting and capturing a great photo is something you will remember forever.

You never know what will even pop up on your cabin's doorstep.

- Large animals like moose, whitetail deer, and black bear
- Forest birds such eagles, owls, blue jays and many songbirds
- Predators such as timber wolves, lynx, and fox
