Wawa in the tourism region: "Sault Ste. Marie – Algoma"
Surely you use the Trans Canada HWY for your trip. This is also called HWY 317. Please do not drive past Wawa and use the turnoff that leads you there.
You will be greeted immediately by this huge goose, which is the landmark of Wawa.
She is certainly the most photographed goose in the world. Do that too as proof that you were here.
Let the tourism center provide you with up-to-date and helpful information. Especially about hiking trails and accommodations.
Due to my worn out knees, I can not walk well and had to leave that more and more to Elizabeth, my wife. In the past she did such tours for me especially in Newfoundland Labrador but also in Thuringia alone, while at the same time I did something different. Without her help, less information would be in my travel guides with pictures.
Unfortunately she is also not in a good shape after many serious surgeries.
Wawa is certainly a pretty good location to explore the area.

Wawa used to have iron ore and gold mines. Meanwhile, the population is constantly decreasing. It is today under 3000.
This is not a reason not to spend some time here.
You can do a lot in nature and relax.

Beautiful hiking trails
The "Michipicoten River" has its origin in the "Dog Lake" flows into the "Magpie River" and ends in Lake Superior near Wawa.
Visit the "High Falls" from the "Magpie River" south of Wawa. This waterfall is also known as "Scenic High Falls" or "Magpie Falls". The drop height is a bit 22 m. Follow the signs to find the falls.
Also use "satelite imagery" on the google map. There you can discover even more if you are patient. Including a picture of the falls.

Wawa even has an airport, ask if sightseeing flights are offered!

Michipicoten itself is not only a place but also one of the so-called "First Nations". They are aboriginal people who have their own rules of life to preserve their culture.
Find out about their history, way of life and culture. Ask how to behave in order not to hurt their feelings and make them angry. I had to do that too.
That's how I learned a lot - but not enough to be a teacher. During certain acts or ceremonies do not take pictures or film.
There are a lot of critics of our natives - but also listen to what they have to say and make your own judgment. Imposing a different lifestyle on someone always creates problems.

Find your way to Dubreuilville a fairly new place with about 600 inhabitants - most of them French Canadians who live mainly from the timber industry.
Explore some of the surrounding Provincial Parks. Of course, your time is not enough to visit everyone. Use the internet to find out more about each park. YouTube is also a help that you should use.
