Canadian Train Tour
The International Bridge spans the waters of Lake Superior just as they head into the Locks of Sault Ste. Marie. This bridge joins Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada just 50 minutes north of Mackinaw City. In Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada the Algoma Central Railway Company will take you on a train ride through exquisite countryside, past waterfalls and over precipices as they negotiate the rim of the Agawa Canyon. Your definition of beauty will be transformed after a rendezvous with Agawa Canyon.
This one day wilderness excursion will take you 114 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, over towering trestles, alongside pristine northern lakes and rivers, and through the awesome granite rock formations and mixed forests of the Canadian Shield.
Through the large picture windows of your comfortable coach, you will experience the same vistas and panoramas that inspired the Group of Seven to create some of Canada's most notable landscape art.
Only the hardiest made this rugged land their home and the marks of the Ojibway, fur traders, lumber jacks and prospectors are barely discernible in this unspoiled wilderness. During your excursion our friendly tour attendants will tell you more about this fascinating country and its history.
Just when you thought you'd seen it all, we'll coast 500 feet down to the floor of the Agawa Canyon, where you will have two hours to experience the rugged beauty up close. The whole family can enjoy scenic walks on gravelled trails, four sets of waterfalls or an invigorating climb up over 300 stairs to the breathtaking Lookout platform, perched 250 feet above the tracks.
If you are looking for something more relaxing, you can stop in our Souvenir Car, enjoy a peaceful lunch in our groomed picnic areas or pull up a bench and watch the Agawa River flow by. Our park rangers will also be on hand to answer questions or possibly point out some local wildlife.
There will be plenty to photograph during your excursion so be sure to pack your camera and lots of film.
For your stay in Canyon Park we recommend that you wear recreational clothing and footwear.
