A 4-night/5-day adventure in the heart of the Northern Ontario wilderness, your Quintessential Canada experience begins with a private float plane flight from Thunder Bay that quickly whisks you away over hundreds of lakes and expansive boreal forests, dropping you off at Miminiska Lodge, your home for the duration of your stay. Styled with nods of classic Canadiana, you’ll rest cozy in your lakefront cabin.
