Your Great Summer Escape – Travel Tips for your Timmins Adventure

Need the ultimate break from the city? Timmins is tucked away in the heart of the Boreal Forest, and is home to outdoor adventures, delicious local food and memorable ways to stay. Here’s four things to do on your great summer escape.

Paddle in the Heart of the Canadian forest

Join the experienced guides at Wild Exodus for a trip down Grassy River. Start out with a photo op at High Falls, and then cruise down the 12 km route with some small rapids along the way.

Taste local favourites

The Voyageur Dining Room at Cedar Meadows serves up familiar fresh foods like local asparagus and in-house cured meats prepared to perfection by Chef Jill St-Amour.  (Psst: follow her on Twitter to get a behind the scenes look into the menu!)


Eat outdoors!

Make the most of the summer by making meal time an outdoor occasion.  Have a quintessential Canadian meal of rainbow trout in the dining tent at Wild Exodus overlooking Kenogamissi Lake. If you are looking to try something new, don’t miss the beaver meatballs and wild game that is often on the menu!


Treat yourself to a spa day

After a big hike or paddle indulge in a little R&R at Cedar Medows’ Spa Grande Nature. Enjoy a manicure, or spend an afternoon in their Nordic spa, including sauna, steam room and hot and cold plunge pools.  

  Authentic ways to stay

Stay immersed in your Northern experience throughout your trip. Start your trip with a wilderness adventure. Wild Exodus takes you deep into the forest for a one of a kind glamping adventure on the bank of Grassy River. Round out your Timmins experience with a stay at Cedar Medows Resort. Stay in one of their comfortable rooms steps from the spa and restaurant or bring the whole family and make one of their chalets your home away from home.
