Cheap Flights to Thunder Bay

If you happen to be a lover of the great outdoors, don’t miss your chance to visit Thunder Bay, one of Canada’s premier outdoor cities. With the largest fresh water lake at the doorstep and the vast expanse of the boreal forest and the Nor’Wester mountain range surrounding the city, it is a setting perfect for the adventurer in all of us. Boasting world-class fishing and hunting, the endless rugged beauty of the Canadian outdoors, and great campgrounds and cottages, Thunder Bay is the place to go to get back in touch with nature. The outdoors is not the only thing to look forward to. As a city with large shipping and forestry industries, Thunder Bay has grown into a multi-cultural area that offers a variety of activities, such as Nordic-style skiing, saunas and spas, and the Folklore Festival, attracting tourists and locals in a celebration of song, dance, and cuisine.

Thunder Bay Airport (YQT) is situated very close to the city, just 6 kilometers out from the downtown core. Direct flights are primarily from airports in Ontario, Montreal, Halifax, and St. Johns. Taxis can be quite expensive and is largely provided on demand, so it is essential to rent a car to travel in Thunder Bay and the surrounding wilderness. Several hotels offer complimentary hotel shuttles to and from the airport, and may be accessed through the free shuttle phone next to the baggage area. Public transportation is available with a fare of $2.65.

Thunder Bay has a continental climate with warm to hot summers and cooler winters, which make for great summer or winter getaways with all kinds of seasonal events and activities. Sleeping Giant is a must see with breathtaking views of Lake Superior, over 80 kilometers of hiking trails, and wildlife all around. Also make sure to visit Prince Arthur’s Landing at Marina Park, the signature recreation destination in the city that hosts a variety of events depending on the time of year. If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, head on over to the backcountry wilderness with over 70,000 fishable lakes and rivers, paddling, and excellent hunting. And if you have never seen the sky dance, the chances of seeing the aurora borealis are very high in Sunset Country. To truly experience the grand expanses of the surrounding natural beauty, consider a fly-in fishing or hunting trip on board a Canadian bush plane.

Depending on what season you plan on going to Thunder Bay, make sure you plan how to get the most out of the beautiful area. As a starting point, Ontario Travel provides a great trip planner tool. When you’re ready to explore the great Canadian wilderness, you can find amazing deals on Skyscanner.
