Thunder Bay flight - in the steps of settlers and fur trappers
Come to one of Canada’s Great Lakes when you take cheap flights to Thunder Bay, Ontario and stand on the shore of mighty Lake Superior. Thunder Bay is only 45 minutes from the American mid-west and the gateway to Northwest Canada. Thunder Bay began as a fortified trading post in the early 1800s when Fort William was built to protect French and British settlers and native American fur traders. Today visitors can step back in time and visit a reconstruction of this palisaded fort at the Fort William Historical Park and take part in leg wrestling, wood whittling and witness a traditional ‘pow-wow’ ceremony. As well as kayaking, sailing or windsurfing on the lake, you can hike one of the many scenic trails around Thunder Bay or walk Canada’s longest foot suspension bridge at Eagle Canyon, swaying 150 feet above the canyon floor. With Thunder Bay flights you can shop for locally mined amethysts or stop for a sauna in Little Finland. Let us book your cheap flights and hotel now.
