Georgian Bay

A piece of picturesque Canada

Northwest of Toronto, in the heart of what was known as Huronia in the 17th century, is Georgian Bay. Located on Lake Huron, it is a picturesque, peaceful part of Canada featuring magnificent beaches and memorable sunsets, particularly in Port Elgin. And what about the majestic Blue Mountains, on the most elevated portion of the Niagara Escarpment! Traversed mainly via Collingwood, Georgian Bay is one of the best areas to cycle in Ontario. You will feel at one with nature as you pedal along this captivating route, cradled between the escarpment and the bay…
