Exploring Pelee Island.

I consider myself to be someone with a passion for travel and adventure so when I heard I was getting the opportunity to tour Pelee Island, the southern-most inhabited point of Canada, I was thrilled. 

Explore the Windsor waterfront and discover Pelee Island on this 3-day tour.

Itinerary highlights: fabulous food, a sculpture park, cycling through Essex Pelee Island Coast (EPIC) wine country, exploring Pelee Island and birding.

A 4-day cycle along Lake Erie shorelines.

This four-day journey, which begins and ends in St. Thomas, takes you along quiet rural roads and a waterfront trail, down Lake Erie’s northern shoreline and through communities with rich maritime heritage and vast agricultural lands.
