Designated a Canadian Signature Experience by Destination Canada, the Agawa Canyon Tour Train is hailed as one of the most innovative and unique experiences offered anywhere in the country.
It’s no wonder tickets sell out fast.
Departing from the historic Canal District in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, passengers embark on a 366-kilometre round trip tour through lush forests, between ancient granite rock formations and across expansive canyons before descending 500 feet to a private destination nestled in the Agawa Canyon.
While taking in the scenery, become immersed in an audio-guided tour telling the story of the surrounding region and its connection with Canada’s greatest art collective, The Group of Seven, who immortalized the same landscapes in their works.
The tour is available in English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin via wireless headsets.
Upon reaching Agawa Canyon, exit the train and explore Agawa Canyon Park. Take 90 minutes to picnic, walk to hidden waterfalls, or hike to a panoramic lookout 250 feet above the canyon floor before departing back to the train station.
The Agawa Canyon Train Tour is offered from August 1 through October 10. Both summer and fall seasons provide unique and unforgettable experiences. Passengers can enjoy the fresh Lake Superior breeze and towering lush foliage leading into the fall or take in endless views of vibrant red, yellow and orange during peak fall colour season.
While in Sault Ste. Marie, there are many places to stay and dine. The Canal District boasts multiple restaurant options offering breakfast, pub-style food and casual fine dining. Or venture downtown and explore Sault Ste. Marie’s burgeoning culinary scene at Peace Restaurant or Ernie’s Coffee Shop.
