On 1000 islands visit we travel on the great St. Lawrence river. Connecting Canada's great lakes with the the Atlantic ocean, the river traverses the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, and is also the international border between Canada and the United States.
We begin our trip by picking you up at your accommodation location ( for group of 4 ) or our local meeting point ( usually near Parliament hill ). Then we drive toward Brockville, ON. ( its about 1.5 hour ) . Once we arrived at the beautiful harbor of Rockport, where we board the boat for an almost 2hrs tour of the thousand islands region. The views are breathtaking, and the architectural marvels that have been constructed on the islands are a sight to be seen.
After our boat ride, we continue to the picturesque town of Brockville for a coffee or tea and a short tour of the town. Brockville is known as "the city of the 1000 islands" and is one of the oldest communities. You will be amazed by how close the United States is!
After all we end up our trip by coming back to our starting point.
