Thunder Bay is in the heart of First Nations land and is located on the Trans-Canada Highway, serving as the western terminus for the St Lawrence Seaway. The seaway is the system of locks, channels and canals that connect the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. Along with being an important system of waterways for international trade, it's a playground for recreational boating activities.
This rugged, northern region is home to Lake Superior, the largest of North America's Great Lakes and a hugely popular attraction. Visitors travel to this vast expanse of water to enjoy its striking shoreline and surrounding wilderness. Nature-lovers will relish immersing themselves in Thunder Bay's lakes and rivers, wandering its forests, and exploring its deep chasms, plunging waterfalls and towering granite cliffs.
