Consider using Minaki as a springboard for further explorations. Northwestern Ontario has a wealth of fascinating cities, attractions and landscapes. West Hawk Lake, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast, and Falcon Beach, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast of Minaki are also worth checking out.
Each place holds a specific history and Northwestern Ontario has its own fair share of stories to tell. The old towns here are well worth visiting.
There are some cool ways for thrill seekers to enjoy the great outdoors around Minaki. Mountain climbing and zip-lining are just two popular ways thrill seekers here can get their thrills. When it gets cold, head to the Minaki area. Pull on your woollens and have a go at the wintersports on offer here. Try snow shoeing or cross-country skiing.
The 1st of July is when many people in Canada celebrate Canada Day, so keep an eye out for festivities and parades if you're fortunate enough to be vacationing in Northwestern Ontario at that time.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Kenora, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast.
