Quetico Provincial Park, one of the first parks established in Ontario, is a wilderness sanctum of international acclaim. Encompassing 469 456 hectares of lakes and rivers carving the Canadian Shield, the park is revered by paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts who desire the tranquility and challenges of a true wilderness experience.
