At the southernmost point of the Canadian mainland – Point Pelee National Park, experience nature like never before. Each spring, view flocks of migratory birds, joined in autumn by waves of vivid Monarch butterflies. In winter, wander snowy trails past ice-cloaked trees and in summer, bask on sandy beaches. Whether you cycle, paddle or hike Canada’s smallest but most ecologically diverse national park, you’ll be immersed in an unforgettable eco-adventure.
Point Pelee National Park is your doorway into a world of natural wonders. From your first step into the park you’ll be amazed by a diversity of habitats, from the sheltered canopy of the southern Carolinian forest to the expansive sea of cattails in the marsh. Listen for the sweet songs of migratory birds that briefly stop in spring on their way to northern breeding grounds. Glide through the marshlands in a canoe, paddling silently past turtles basking in the sun or wander barefoot on a sandy beach, enjoying the sun and warm water. In autumn, the migration returns with songbirds darting quickly in and out of vegetation, while dragonflies and Monarch butterflies drift by. In winter, Point Pelee offers quiet beauty and solitude as you enjoy hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
