It may not be the first place that comes to mind when you’re thinking about getting away. But for anyone who’s visited Northern Ontario, they’re sure to tell you that there’s no place quite like it.

The region offers a profusion of experiences, amenities and attractions that you won’t find anywhere else. Sure, the northerly part of the province is renowned for its outdoor adventures like fishing, paddling, and powersports. However, there are a virtually limitless array of other things to explore, which makes it the ideal destination for families and those looking for something different when it’s time to get away from it all.

This is where you can learn more about some of Northern Ontario’s most exciting cities, including Timmins, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay and Sudbury. Each showcases a distinct perspective of this great land. And getting to any one of them is a breeze. Porter offers great rates on flights to the North. Or, if you prefer to hit the open road, plan a route that will get you here in no time.
