Trip Details

The Manitoulin Hiking & Stargazing Experience is an adventure discovering the the “Spirit Island” rich with Aboriginal culture and spectacular landscapes that are great for hiking and cycling and the beautiful night skies of Gordon’s Park.

During the day, hike the Cup and Saucer Trail, Misery Bay Trails and more. At night, a guided stargazing experience includes night sky observation through the park’s 8-inch Dobsonian Telescope.

Take a laser guided sky tour of the constellations, galaxies, nebulae, double stars, planets and more with our wide angled Bausch & Lomb binoculars. Accommodation is in one of our cute & cozy cedar camping cabins.

These cabins are set up on their own wooded site with a picnic table and a campfire pit and porch.


How To Join The Trip

There are several options to get to Gordon’s Park and Manitoulin Island. Please note there is no air service, train service, or bus service to the island or on the island therefore we strongly recommend the rental of a vehicle for your stay on the island. Fly into Sudbury and rent a vehicle and drive 2 hours. OR Fly into Toronto, rent a vehicle and drive 6 hours on scenic highways to the island in Little Current via a historic swing bridge that opens every hour on the hour to allow for boat traffic. Alternatively you can drive 3.5 hours to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula from Toronto and catch the ChiCheemaun Ferry Service to Manitoulin Island. We are located 13 minutes from the ferry docks in South Baymouth. The ChiCheemaun Ferry carries vehicles and passengers and sails 4 times per day during the summer season and 2 times daily (3 times on Fridays) during the off season.
