Driving Options

If you have the time for a road trip and multiple rest stops, the drive through Northern Ontario is beautiful. We drove from Toronto to Thunder Bay over two days with a mid-way stay at a motel and loved the drive.

The two driving options within Canada are to either drive to Sudbury and then take Highway 17 along the Lake Superior shoreline (Map #1) or for the more northern, remote route, travel from Toronto to Timmins and then take Highway 11 (Map #1) which adds an additional hour.

There's also the possibility to travel through the States, where you travel through Michigan which adds an hour of driving, or a wider route that takes you through Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, around the western side of Lake Superior (Map #2), which adds about 3 hours.

Approx. Driving Time: 15+ hours

Approx. Cost: About 2-3 tanks of gas one way
