The vast boreal forests of northern Ontario are a true wilderness, and all within relatively easy reach of civilisation. Fly (or train) into Toronto, Ottawa or Thunder Bay and you can be on a private floatplane flying deep into the wild by mid-afternoon. You'll arrive to well-equipped and fully-serviced lodges that are your basecamp for action-packed days of guided kayaking, standup paddle-boarding, whitewater rafting, river-side camping and fishing. Reconnect with yourself and the great outdoors around the campfire as the Northern Lights dance overhead, and spend time with First Nations communities learning about Ontario's indigenous cultures and history. In these busy and hectic days, come and find your escape in Ontario's most iconic great outdoors.

Northern Ontario Fishing Handbook

An angler’s guide to the Canadian wilderness

There is something truly special about casting a fly to the edge of a weed bed where a pike as long as your leg is lurking. If big brook trout is your game, then look no further. It’s one thing to catch a 20-inch brook trout, but it’s another to catch a half-dozen, or more, of that size in one day on a fly rod.
