Just two and a half hours from Sudbury is the largest freshwater island in the world. Manitoulin Island, part of an archipelago at the top of Lake Huron is yours to explore with scenic golf courses, beaches, and mountain bike courses.
The Odawa were the first to reach the island and believed that the spirit of “Manitou” inhabited it. This Algonquian word meaning “mysterious being” or “mystery” is where Manitoulin Island gets its name.
Since the 17th century, the island has been inhabited by various Aboriginal communities and briefly by Jesuit missionaries. Over the centuries, Manitoulin Island’s main industries included turkey production, farming, logging, and sheep rearing.
Uncover the island’s natural mysteries for yourself with a wide selection of tree-lined trails, lakeside hikes, and cliff top lookouts.
