Chapleau in the Tourism Region: "North Eastern Ontario
The further you go to the north of Ontario as less people live there.
In and around Chapleau live only about 3000 people. Many of them belong to different aboriginal tribes. The area is offers a lot of adventures and sightseeing in an abundance of nature.
The city honors with her name Sir Joseph-Adolphe Chapleau, lawyer, journalist and businessman.
If you come you will surely find a newer greeting - Many thanks to Wikipedia
Northern Ontario offers what nature lovers expect from Canada. Elizabeth and I prefer that to big cities, but we do not avoid them and we took advantage of the many things they offer.
Unfortunately, we both got older and cannot be any longer as active as younger people.
They certainly will not have any problems of the supposedly largest game reserve in the world close to Chapleau. It is really big and was founded in 1925!
Much of the country is owned by the Ojibway and Cree First Nations - aboriginal people who were granted certain rights.
Please browse the Internet or ask when you are here for detailed information about offered guided tours and recommendations.
Many visitors come here to enjoy all this. Therefore, it is advisable to look in time for accommodation. Be aware that cottages in a beautiful location have to be booked for a longer time than a room in another accommodation.
We do not do free advertisement anymore and leave the choice to you. Do not forget to read the reviews on the internet!
It is reassuring to know that there is also a hospital. It must not be necessarily something serious that happed like have been attacked by a bear attacked by a bear or a serious car accident. A sprained foot or a very painful experience with poison ivy (toxic ivy) is enough.
Think about health insurance before your trip! We always took the risk and were lucky. Friend of us paid a lot of money when they got sick in the US.
This huge steam engine reminds of bygone times
Chapleau is another settlement which was founded in the 19th century because of the new railway connections.
This steam locomotive of the "Canadian Pacific Railway" is reminiscent of these times. Many good jobs were created here by this development.
he railway connection still exists. Inquire about the current offer of a passenger transport with the so-called "Budd Car". Certainly a comfortable way to see something of the wilderness.
An alternative is to book a flight in a float plane or a tour by motorboat.
The railway jobs are gone. There is still some woodworking industry with a sawmill, but jobs were also lost as exports to the US dropped.
The entrance to the "Louis Dubé Peace Park" on "Riverside Drive"
From the "Louis Dubé Peace Park" you have a beautiful view of the "Nebsquashi River". Like many others in Canada, this park is dedicated to the Peace Movement and also to Louis Dubé. After a strenuous journey, you can relax here.

If you want to see the original of the aboriginal drawings shown below, you need to make a real adventure trip with a guide.
Probably with an airplane with pontoon swimmers to land on the water. Enter the search term Missinaibi Lake in Google Maps and you know why - there are no roads and in addition, you have to find the right location.
"Pictographs" at "Missinaibi Lake" - many thanks to Lester Kovac and Wikipedia
The "Missinaibi River" rises from the lake of the same name and flows into the "Moose River". The Thunderhouse Falls are a series of smaller waterfalls with a total drop of about 40 meters.
"which is actually a chain of relatively small waterfalls connected by violent rapids, the river drops 40 metres,".
