Temagami's diversity is what keeps many outdoor enthusiasts coming back year after year. The protected status of the Temagami forest ensures a unique opportunity to enjoy unspoiled wilderness. Wake up to the cry of the loon. Actually enjoy your mornings!
Temagami (Ojibway for 'deep water') offers almost limitless opportunities, both water and dry land experiences for nature lovers. Located on the Canadian Shield, the region consists predominantly of evergreens. However, birch, maple, poplar and tamarack also grow in patches. Rock outcrops accent the coniferous dominated landscape exemplifying Temagami's rugged beauty.
Photographers will appreciate the region's striking rugged beauty and diverse wildlife. Bird watching is quite good with over 60 species being present during the summer season. Old growth forest and its rare undergrowth offer precious photo opportunities of Northern Ontario's unspoiled wilderness. Don't leave your camera at home!
Fishing is undeniably Temagami's biggest 'lure'. Fishermen come from all over the United States and Canada to fish the lake's crystal waters. Spring angling is always a Temagami highlight year after year for most anglers but don't count out the incredible summer and fall fishing let alone the winter lunkers of last year. Come and try to catch one of Lake Temagami's trophy fish: Lake Trout, Walleye, Pickerel, Small Mouth Bass, Pike and Whitefish all call Lake Temagami home. Our staff will be happy to suggest some prime fishing spots, some of which are only minutes off the shores of Tamar Island.
Hikers and naturalists will enjoy Temagami's vast protected wilderness. Due to the secluded location of Tamar, wildlife sighting opportunities are numerous.
Often described as Ontario's finest canoe country, Temagami's fame does not come unwarranted. The region boasts 8000 kilometers of interconnecting canoe routes (remnants of first settlers trade routes and portages). The region was once home to the legendary paddler and conservationist, Grey Owl. All paddlers will enjoy Lake Temagami's more than 1300 islands which offer plenty of opportunity for exploration.
