Day 1 North Bay, ON
From local joining points, we travel into Northern Ontario to view fabulous fall colours. Following a lunch stop in Barrie, we continue on to visit a heritage site, the S.S. Keewatin. On our tour, you’ll walk through time from 1907 until 1965. Visit staged staterooms with clothing and artifacts from each of the seven decades she carried passengers up and down the Great Lakes, the dining room with the dishes, table cloths, utensils, candle holders and tea pots from 100 years ago, and the engine room, identical to the Titanic. Continue to our overnight accommodation in North Bay.

Day 2 Sault Ste. Marie, ON
Our fall sightseeing continues as we make our way to Sault Ste Marie, travelling along Lake Nipissing before we head to Capreol, where we enjoy a visit to the Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre. Explore the regions rich lumber, mining and railroad heritage. Late afternoon arrival at our hotel and the balance of the evening free. (B)

Day 3 St. Ignace, MI
We take the Algoma Central Train which leaves at 8:00 a.m. for our all day "Agawa Canyon Excursion". Soon we will be up in the hills which surround the city, looking down on the Algoma Steel Mills, the International Bridge and upper St. Mary's River. When we reach the mighty Montreal River we cross via a trestle which will give you a thrill to long remember. Then the train starts its descent of over 500 feet in 12 miles to reach the floor of the famous canyon. We cross the winding Agawa River and soon see the picturesque Bridal Veil Falls before stopping at Canyon Park. Here we have time to explore the Canyon floor, or relax at a picnic table. We then reboard the train for our trip back to Sault Ste. Marie. We board our motor coach and cross the International Bridge to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan where we join I-75 and travel south to St. Ignace for a 2 night stay. (B, L)

Day 4 St. Ignace, MI
This morning our motor coach will transfer our group to the pier to board the ferry to Mackinac Island. The Island knows no motorized vehicles, just bicycles and horse drawn carriages. We begin our visit with a horse drawn carriage ride, with a driver/guide that provides some insight into life on the island. Later you will have time to browse in the quaint shops or stroll the quiet tree lined streets. Tonight, we return to our beautiful resort in St. Ignace. This evening we have planned a farewell dinner. (B,D)

Day 5 Home
Breakfast included at our hotel, before we bid farewell to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and travel homeward via Port Huron and Sarnia with an evening arrival home. (B)
