There’s an Invisible Line that You Cross
When You Approach North Bay…
Crossing this line can expand your horizons, improve your worldview – even change your life. You’ll find a launchpad to adventure, culture and a lifestyle that every human secretly craves. It’s the home of truly northern experiences since 1884. And we’re proud to share it with the world. Welcome to North Bay, The Gateway to the North.
It’s What the North Does Best – Winter!
It doesn’t matter if you’ve come looking for an ice skating rink, cross country skiing trails, snowboarding gear, or the best sledding and snowmobiling in Ontario – even if it’s the call of ice fishing on Lake Nipissing; when you want winter fun, a snow day North Bay style, you’ll soon see why this is one of the best places to visit in Ontario.
Whether you want outdoor skating on a lake, or even downhill skiing on perfect powder, North Bay is where you’ll find it. Follow that compass north – the way it wants to go naturally – and follow it to North Bay, Ontario!
