Gananoque and surroundings in the tourism region: South Eastern Ontario

Gananoque is one of the well known starting points for exciting boat tours to the "1000 Island".
Explore Gananoque. The videos below are certainly of some help. The first one shows some restaurants etc. and the second one a trip to the Thousand Islands.
Gananoque has also an own power pant on the "Gananoque River" to produce electricity.
On our tour to write a travel guide for Newfoundland-Labrador in the German language, we drove again along the St. Lawrence River to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. However, our time schedule did not allow us to participate in one because we had booked the ferry between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and did not want to miss it.
We decided to come back to spend several days here, but so far we were not able to do this

On our trip to Newfoundland or Quebec we often went along the "St. Lawrence River".
This is much nicer and less dangerous than on the Highway 401. Nice rest areas - unfortunately without toilets - invite you to stay for a short while.

It is always worth to leave Highway 401 and do some sightseeing. We stopped on many parking spots with beautiful sights.
Unfortunately Ontario is very much behind Quebec with providing washrooms. I hardly can believe that we are here still on a third world standard compared to some countries in Europe.
Many of our visitors feel the same. You miss so much if you always stay on one of the Canadian motorways.
If you have all required documents with you, visit the USA by crossing the river using the "Ivy Lea Bridge" or better known as the "Thousand Island International Bridge" which was opened in 1938.
We also used them when we drove from the US to Gananoque

We stopped at many places to enjoy the sights!

We hope that we will soon be able to participate in one of the round trips to the "Thousand Islands". We have wanted to do this for a long time, but have had to postpone it again and again.
If you like fishing - the waters around the "1000 Islands" are considered one of the best areas for freshwater fish fishing.
Many fish in record size are caught here.
Control and appropriate protective measures have made this possible.
