Lake Erie North Shore & Pelee Island

Need some southern exposure? Canada’s southernmost reach (along Lake Erie’s north shore) combines beach-front beauty and Ontario’s longest growing season—the intense summer heat and moderating lake breezes are perfect for producing full-bodied wines. Between sips, explore manicured gardens and meandering bike trails, fresh-produce stands and playful summer festivals, even majestic Carolinian forests and a renowned bird sanctuary.

Lake Erie North Shore is approximately 4 hours by car from Toronto, and 30 minutes from Detroit. Travelling to Pelee Island includes an additional 90-minute ferry ride.
