Sault Ste. Marie in the tourism region: "Sault Ste. Marie – Algoma"

The fact that there is one Niagara Falls in Canada as well as one in the US also applies to Sault Ste. Marie. Please visit both if you have the right paper and are not a Muslim. I've never had any problem with those. Extremists - no matter what belief or nationality - I reject. They misuse religion for their evil purposes. Of course those must be stopped by any means.
The Canadian Ste. Marie has about 73 000 inhabitants. It is located on the St. Marys River, which flows into Lake Superior.

A challenging tour

Sault Ste. Marie is the largest city in Algoma Country. In my opinion the town has an interesting history. The area was named by the natives "Bawating" or "Pawating", which means roaring water.
Obviously, the first white man who came here was a young Frenchman who had the assignment to report on the native inhabitants who lived here.
These were not exactly peaceful and even fought each other. When more Europeans arrived, it became quite dangerous for them.
At the end of the 17th century, Jesuits gave the place the name "Sault Ste. Marie" - the rapids of St. Mary.
I am not a historian. If you want to know more about the history and the aborigines ask in a tourist office where to get those information.
Today you do not need to be afraid of the "Indians" anymore. However, you should familiarize yourself with certain behaviors not to hurt their feelings. Maybe you select one as a guide to roam the wilderness.
After our first guided snowmobile tour in Newfoundland, I am tempted to do something similar in the summer with an ATV. Unfortunately I have to drive now slowly - my time of moto cross with motor bikes is over. I have problems standing!
Maybe you can participate in a half-day introductory course here in Sault Ste. Marie and even participate in one of the tours offered. A provider of the company "Algoma Sled Tours" offers this and has allowed us to use some of their images.

Cozy get-together after a tour

Before the war of 1812 the cities were not divided. But both are still good neighbors and the common sea route and the associated trade contribute to this.
Take part in a boat tour.
We always liked to visit museums on our travels. Including many very small ones in which we were the only visitors, could take pictures without any problems and got sometimes even free coffee and many information.

Surely most European visitors will be interested in the surrounding nature - but certainly they will not bring their own camping equipment with them. But that should not keep them away to be active in one of the Provincial Parks. We mostly bought a day pass and often even got free admission because of my press card.
Ask for guided tours. Maybe everything needed is provided!
Please use the links to YouTube videos I have installed. Browse the Internet for more. You can spend hours with it. Use the often offered subtitles, if necessary.

Decide if you are taking a train ride on the "Agawa Canyon Tour Train". Certainly an unforgettable experience, as the video shows.
Ask about the details and other things you are interested in.
