It’s called the ‘Thousand Islands’ but even cooler is that there are actually more than 1,800 sub-continental pieces of land that make up the region. The islands, in the St. Lawrence River, straddle the border of the U.S. and Canada. Today, the region is a hub for outdoor enthusiasts who come for hiking, boating and kayaking. But the history of the area can be explored much deeper in places like Gananoque.

The Victorian town, in Ontario, on the Canadian side, is often called the gateway to the 1,000 Islands. In this video we have show you some of the top spots to visit on a trip, including a cruise with the Gananoque Boat Line to spots like the massive Boldt Castle, a tour with 1,000 Islands Helicopter Tour for incredible aerial views and a bike and picnic along the the Rideau Canal. When it comes to a place to stay, you don’t want to miss the Gananoque Inn which offers easy access for water activities like boating and fishing and is walking distance to the main street for breweries and restaurants.

    Adventure in Prince Albert National Park revolves around water, whether you’re on it or not. My favorite experiences here include a fishing lesson and seeing a bear swim across the water and also hiking on the Waskesiu River Nature Trail. Parks Canada

    Road trips aren't always for adventure seekers but in Quebec maritime it's a different story.
