Hotels in Thunder Bay

Located on the banks of Lake Superior in northwest Ontario near Mount McKay, Thunder Bay is surrounded by breathtaking natural landscapes that make it the perfect place for year-round outdoor activities. Surrounded by national and provincial parks, Thunder Bay acts as the gateway to Ontario's great outdoors. 

With more than half of the region's population, Thunder Bay is a vibrant community in a wilderness setting. It has a thriving arts community and rich history. Built up during the fur trade, Thunder Bay served as a central location for British and French settlers to trade with First Nations groups. As a result, it remains a diverse, multicultural city to this day. Throughout the year, festivals take place that celebrate Thunder Bay's ethnic diversity, including the Folklore Festival, Ukranian Festival, Feste Italiana, and more.
