Book a flight from Stephenville to Sudbury for a down-to-earth adventure in Nickel City.
While nickel was discovered in the late 1800s, its lasting impact can still be seen across Sudbury. Look no further than Dynamic Earth science museum for a lesson in the city’s mining history.
One of the more prominent Sudbury attractions, the 30-foot Big Nickel monument honours this legacy. The massive replica of the 1951 Canadian nickel is located outside Dynamic Earth. Dig deeper into the past with a stroll through the museum’s exhibits. Embrace an authentic mining experience, seven storeys beneath the building on an underground tour of its model mine.
Above ground, the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area serves as an outdoor escape from the bustling city. Winding through the 2,400 acre park is a network of trails leading across wetlands and forests. You’ll enjoy another out of this world experience on the NASA Trail, a short hike to the former site of a space observatory.
The park is also a great place to catch a glimpse of Northern Ontario’s wildlife. The Blackbird Swamp Loop, a 500-metre trail, is great for spotting beavers. It also boasts a bird blind where you can watch the local birds, undisturbed in their natural habitats.
Blending the outdoors with history is the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre. Among the fascinating collection of vintage trains, you’ll find other fun things to do in Sudbury. Dine al fresco in the museum’s Prescott Park, then drop into the Heritage Centre for a picture with “Ol’ Betsy”, a classic 1920s fire truck.

Visit the picturesque landscape of Killarney Provincial Park with flights from Stephenville to Sudbury.
The La Cloche Mountains, pristine lakes, and lush jack pine forests have all been captured in masterpieces by the Group of Seven. The famous troupe of early 20th century landscape painters were so inspired by the area’s natural beauty that their conservation efforts led to the founding of Killarney Provincial Park in 1964.
Wander into the woods and you’ll see that much of the terrain remains unchanged. The white quartzite cliffs pop out from the green forests and more picture-worthy sights abound on hiking trails throughout the park.
It’ll take you a few days to hike the 80 km La Cloche Silhouette Trail, but you’ll come across a colourful display of wildflowers and plants. A painting by the Group of Seven’s Franklin Carmichael bears the same name as the trail. Enjoy the view of a wide variety of white pines, yellow birch, and red maple trees.
Connected to La Cloche is the Crack Trail, a much tougher, 6 km trek uphill. But, even with the difficult climb, the natural scenery on this route continues draw in many visitors. Waiting at the Killarney Ridge lookout is a stunning view of the surrounding mountains.
In the winter, the landscape transforms into a beautiful snow-covered retreat. Previously inaccessible parts of the park are now joined to the 33 km of trails across frozen lakes and marshes. This means easier access to your favourite winter activities like snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
Year round, George Lake Campgrounds offers ample space for campers in the park. Or, select a more secluded location among the numerous backcountry campsites. After a night in the open wilderness, you may be lured back to Killarney Provincial Park on another trip from Stephenville to Sudbury.
