Sleeping Giant in Thunder Bay
When the CBC asked its listeners to nominate the Seven Wonders of Canada, the Sleeping Giant came out on top, making it one of the things to do in Ontario. There’s no lack of whimsy and wonder in this remarkable natural rock peninsula, which resembles a reclining giant when viewed from the city of Thunder Bay. The park is an outdoor adventurer’s year-round dream, with steep cliffs that can rise up to 240 metres. Ojibwe legend refers to the Sleeping Giant as Nanabijou, who was forever cast to stone when the secret location of a rich silver mine was revealed.
