Lake Ontario, Ontario

#10 of 222 in Nature in Ontario
Visit Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America, and the 14th-largest lake in the world. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, takes its name from the 18,960 sq km (7,340 sq mi) lake, with the province enveloping the north, west, and southwest shores. Venture through the wide range of habitats surrounding the lake, such as dunes, wetlands, and forests, or simply take a stroll in some of the many settlements that hug its banks. Arrange for a boat trip across the shining expanse of water, where you'll see the urban and natural areas back on dry land from another perspective. Put Lake Ontario at the forefront of your travel plans using our Ontario trip planner.
