We often think that mind-blowing natural wonders only exist halfway across the world, but if you simply travel across Ontario, you’ll see some amazing sights. Looking for some natural spaces that you need to see to believe? Check out this list and get ready to plan your next Ontario trip.
Head up near Thunder Bay to visit Agate Island Beach. Instead of kicking up sand, you can dance across the steep beach on an expanse of beautiful agates — gorgeous stones similar to amethyst and quartz. The site is also home to the Pukaskwa pits, acknowledged as sacred sites to the First Nations people in the area.
Visit Dorion, ON, and take in the incredible sights of the Ouimet Canyon. Take the kilometre-long trail to soak in the scenery around and below you — deep in the canyon, you’ll find rare plants that date back to the ice age era, like arctic pyrola and fir-club moss.
The Bonnechere Caves can be found in Eganville, ON, and have been a notable visitor’s destination for over 50 years. Explore these caves and snap all the photos you want of the trails, waterfalls, and fossils that you find throughout.
The Grotto in Tobermory has become one of the province’s hottest spots — and for good reason. The view is incredible, with the rocky cutout on the shoreline and beautiful blue and aquamarine waters. The Grotto has increased in popularity, so plan ahead before you go to make the most of the visit.
Looking for a space to see the stars? The Torrance Barrens Dark-Sky Preserve is the place to be. On a clear night, you can see the Milky Way, constellations, planets, and maybe even the Aurora Borealis! Bring your binoculars to see the Andromeda Galaxy, which is 2 million light years away.
