    Discover the captivating beauty of Aubrey Falls, a hidden gem tucked away in the Algoma region. Our video takes you on a visual feast, showcasing the cascading waters, lush forests, and tranquil surroundings that make Aubrey Falls a true natural sanctuary.

     

    The trail spans a little over 1 kilometre from the parking lot to the Falls. Beyond the bridge, the terrain becomes notably steeper so walking sticks would be helpful.

     

    When planning your trip to Aubrey Falls, it's essential that your vehicle has a full tank of gas. Along Highway 129, gas stations are quite scarce, but you'll find one conveniently located at Tunnel Lake Trading Post. While you're there, treat yourself to a delicious ice cream like we did. ?

This video features, boating enthusiasts, tubers, and wake-boarders navigating the pristine waters around Mary Lake in the Muskokas. This beautiful lake, just outside of Huntsville, Ontario, offers a picturesque shoreline of rocks and trees.

    A beautiful hike in western Quebec, brings you to The Grande Chute in Opemican National Park. This waterfall in Quebec has a fantastic viewpoint built over the base of the falls, giving you the view you see here. The round-trip hike into the Grande Chute viewpoint is only about 1km in and back. It's a well maintained easy trail through the forest and along the Kipawa river. It is a fantastic autumn hike to see the gorgeous fall foliage in Canada.

The road is narrow and has tight, steep switchbacks so that is an adventure on its own. There is a nice campground by the falls that is an easy walk-in campsite perfect for young families.
