"Amid the vast conifer forests of Northwestern Ontario lies the City of Thunder Bay. Nestled along Lake Superior's beautiful western shore, the land here is etched by jagged rock outcroppings and graced with a splendor of smaller lakes and streams." Web-site Michigan Outdoor Writers Association, 2001 Summer Meeting
Situated on the shores of the world's largest freshwater lake, embraced by the Nor'Wester Mountain range, Thunder Bay is a vibrant urban community in a wilderness setting. The largest city on Lake Superior, Thunder Bay is only 90 minutes by jet aircraft from the major international airports of Toronto and Minneapolis. With the Trans-Canada Highway alongside the city, Thunder Bay is accessible to all types of vacationers.
Thunder Bay offers visitors true Canadian experiences with four distinct seasons to enjoy. Summer daytime temperatures vary from 15° C to 30° C while nights tend to be cooler and less humid than southern Ontario locations. Recent winter daytime temperatures have ranged from spring-like to relatively cold - perfect for ice-fishing, snowmobiling and skiing adventures.
