Welcome to Georgian Bay Islands National Park, the world’s largest freshwater archipelago (group of islands), established in 1929. Here you will find an impressive 63 islands and islets, all open to the public! Short boat cruises can take you around the islands, making it easy to experience all that this park has to offer. There are towering cliffs of precambrian granite rock of the Canadian shield, dense wooded areas, and windswept pines. This region inspired the Group of Seven (famous group of Canadian Painters) and appears in many of their works. For those of you looking for an easy getaway from the big, booming city of Toronto, there are plenty of waterfront cabins for a fun Glamping experience. Or, just go for a day trip! There are gorgeous hiking trails for all experience levels that are especially beautiful in autumn. Trails range from well-groomed wheelchair accessible trails, to rugged treks along the great Canadian Shield. Because of these extensive trails that wind their way around the park, Georgian Bay Islands is a very popular cycling destination.
