Sudbury has so many incredible aspects that make the city shine but in this post, we’ll focus on its incredible natural landscape. Sudbury truly puts the beauty of Canada on display in so many ways. Below, are three of Sudbury’s top natural landscapes that will have you packing your bags for a summer trip to this city!
Philip Edward Island
This island stretches along the shores of Georgian Bay, with tons of small islands surrounding its southern shoreline. There are numerous smaller islands by the southern shoreline and many great places to pitch a tent, for an overnight stay.
Travelling the entire island could take up to five days, as it’s a 50-kilometer trip. A hammock, floaties and a GoPro, are all awesome additional items to bring that can make the camping experience that much more fun.
Whether you’re looking to boat, fish or kayak, paddle board or swim, Sudbury has you covered. Both the Northern Ontario Water Sports Centre and the Sudbury Canoe Club can supply you with the equipment needed to enjoy the above activities.
Hiking is an awesome activity that merges physical exercise with the beauty of nature. This activity comes with a number of benefits like:
- Lowers risk of heart disease;
- Strengthens bone density;
- Strengthens various muscle groups (e.g., quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes);
- Improves blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
If you’re looking to capitalize on these benefits this summer, you’re in luck! Sudbury is home to numerous hiking trails, all boasting beautiful scenic views and paths for hikers to enjoy.
