Ontario is the second-biggest and most heavily populated Canadian province, and when it comes to beautiful spots, there’s plenty to choose from. There are lots of lakes, waterfalls, wilderness, rock formations, and more.
When seeking picturesque locations, why not start with Bruce Peninsula National Park? This gorgeous, verdant area is located between the Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. It offers fabulous views, cliffs, rock formations, and crystal clear waters. Part of the Bruce Trail (one of the longest in the world with a length of almost 800 km) runs through the park.
North of the park, you will find the charming Flowerpot Island, which is part of Fathom Five National Marine Park. Its name comes from two rock pillars located to the east. The island can be reached by boat. There are hiking trails here too.
No list of beautiful scenery in Canada, or the world for that matter, would be complete without Niagara Falls. The best views are from the Canadian and not the US side. However, be warned that photographing the waterfalls can be quite hard because of all the spray and because the observation areas get quite crowded.
At the north end of the Georgian Bay, you will find Killarney Provincial Park. This vast wilderness features a downright fantastic landscape with picture-perfect cliffs and woods, white quartzite ridges, and azure lakes. There is a place to camp near the Lake George entrance to the park.
There are over 60 islands in Georgian Bay Islands National Park, which is only accessible by boat. There is a campsite at Beausoleil Island, which you can reach by ferry.
Another prime location to take beautiful pictures is Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron, close to Michigan’s UP. Go over the bridge to get to the island from mainland Ontario. Manitoulin Island has gorgeous shores and a number of lakes. The shores of Lake Huron are particularly notable.
Northwest of Ottawa and northeast of Toronto is Algonquin Provincial Park, the oldest provincial park in Canada. It is bigger than Prince Edward Island and very popular. One reason for this is because it’s close to Toronto and Ottawa. There are thousands of lakes and many streams and rivers here. You can reach some of the southern parts of the park via Highway 60. There are a lot of campgrounds and trails in the park as well.
