Toronto Islands Canoe Paddle and Dining Adventure

Get ready to experience some of the most breathtaking views of Toronto on a Canadian Signature Experience that begins with a leisurely paddle to the Toronto Islands in a heritage Voyageur Canoe followed by an amazing meal lakeside.
Designated a Canadian Signature Experience by Destination Canada. 

The Toronto Islands provides a refreshing escape from downtown, with beautiful views of the city skyline and Lake Ontario. You’ll set out in a heritage Voyageur Canoe, a replica of those used by early Canadian settlers.  You’ll paddle past beautiful sailboats and yacht clubs as your guide tells you all about the natural geography and history of the area. If you’re lucky, you will get to see some native Canadian wildlife as you paddle through the nature sanctuary.

Once you land at the Islands, your crew will present an amazing meal of wild-foraged ingredients, fish, local meats, salads – paired with Ontario artisan cheeses, house-made breads, and handmade charcuterie. Plus, save some room for local Ontario pastries and sweet bites for dessert.

As the beautiful summer evening winds down, you’ll paddle back to the city, taking in the magnificent sunset and skyline view from the water.
