Ontario Holidays

Nestled between the Great Lakes of Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario and the vast inland sea of the Hudson Bay to the north, the province of Ontario is not only the second largest in Canada but also the location of both its most populous city and capital. However, as you travel away from the main centres of habitation you quickly discover a largely untouched, remote and little-visited region comprising of vast forests, pristine lakes and rugged landscapes that harbour an exceptional diversity of animal and bird life. Most visitors to Ontario spend time in forward-thinking, cosmopolitan Toronto, combining this captivating city with a stay in the Canadian capital Ottawa which, with its grand colonial-era buildings and historic centre, is a lovely place to spend a couple of days. However, an important part of Ontario’s identity lies away from its cities. Search for wild moose in the maple forests of Algonquin Provincial Park, discover the First Nation history of Manitoulin Island and relax beside the crystal-clear waters of Tobermory. No journey to Ontario is complete without a visit to the thunderous world-famous falls at Niagara that straddle the border with neighbouring United States.

Ontario has four distinct seasons and can be visited throughout the year although the region is at is very best from May to October when the weather is mostly settled, wildlife viewing is at its most prolific and all national parks, and other visitor attractions, are open for business. Although the weather in spring can be a little unpredictable, particularly in March, throughout April and May temperatures increase and wildlife begins to emerge from the winter thaw. Summer is high season and is a period with the most reliable weather – warm, sometimes hot, with clear skies and little chance of rain, however, it can still be a little cool at night so it is a good idea to ensure you have a sweater or light jacket to hand. Autumn is famous for one thing – the spectacular fall colours. The weather at this time of year is pleasant, days can be warm but it is not uncommon for temperatures to drop to 1-2℃ during the night, especially towards the end of the season.
