Manitoulin Resort is centrally located in regards to all of the "places to visit" on the island. We are close to Wikwemikong Native village where the annual Pow Wow, one of the biggest in Ontario, takes place on the Civic Holiday weekend in August. Hiking enthusiasts will enjoy Manitoulin's famous Cup and Saucer trail which is approximately 30 minutes from Manitoulin Resort. Our family favourite is a trip to Bridal Veil Falls to either swim during the summer or watch the fish spawn in the fall. Be sure to stop at the Manitoulin Chocolate Works and the Boo-Bah-Lou candy store. A rainy-day trip to Sudbury allows an opportunity to visit the Big Nickel Mine, Science North and the Imax Theatre.
The many communities on Manitoulin offer shopping, restaurants, banking, gift shops, medical services and other amenities. Roads are well maintained with light traffic, perfect for cycling or a leisurely scenic drive. Fall brings colour tours and local fall fairs for a change of pace.
The Traditional Pow wow is held every year in the month of June and is hosted in rotation by one of Wikwemikong’s satellite communities.
Held every Civic Holiday weekend in August, the Wikwemikong Cultural Festival is Eastern Canada’s longest running pow-wow and Manitoulin’s premier event.
