Unique School Events/Field Trips
Surrounded by beautiful landscapes and provincial parks, Thunder Bay is home to a multitude of outdoor and cultural activities. Thunder Bay has two downhill ski hills to enjoy skiing and snowboarding as well as three cross-country ski trail locations where the students learn to embrace winter and get fresh air. Thunder Bay also contains Canada’s longest and highest zipline at 600 feet! Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park is one of the best kept skiing secrets in the region. Not only are the trails spectacularly beautiful, they offer terrain that is loved by everyone who gives them a try. Just 25 minutes from downtown Thunder Bay these trails are adjacent to one of the largest and most visited waterfalls in Ontario.
