|Mother Nature blesses Northwestern Ontario with some of the most awe-inspiring
scenery in Canada. The craggy granite outcrops of the immense Canadian Shield, rocks billions of years old, provide a unique backdrop and setting for the intrepid eco-adventurer. Perched on top of the Shield are huge stands of spruce, pine, birch, and poplar, host a great variety of flora. The quiet intricacies and delicate balance of the boreal forest's ecosystem are a wonder to behold!
It is well-worth the expense to charter a floatplane and spend some time flight-seeing. As you soar above the vast expanse of verdant forest you will see thousands of crystal-blue lakes that complete the face of this land. Our lakes and rivers follow the prehistoric drainage patterns carved into the land by the advances and retreats of the ice age that occurred over 10,000 years ago.
The wilderness traveler can be rewarded with sightings of moose, black bear, deer,
beaver, otters, and, if you're lucky, the elusive wolf or lynx. Our forests are home to a countless number of foxes, rabbits and other species of wildlife. As your eyes range about the land and sky you are very likely to be rewarded with a glimpse of the majestic bald eagle. Sunset Country has one of the highest populations of bald eagles in the world. Along the water, you will become accustomed to the haunting cry of the common loon. A sound that for some has come to define their wilderness experience in Sunset Country. Bring your camera and snap a picture of large flocks of white pelicans, the more rare great blue heron, or one of several species of owls inhabiting our secret forest kingdom.
