Gananoque and the 1000 Islands is a boater’s paradise, fisherman’s playground, hiker’s haven and a cyclist’s waterfront adventure and it’s easy to see why it’s regarded as one of the most beautiful places on earth. Featuring two world famous UNESCO designated sites including Frontenac Arch Biosphere and Rideau Heritage Route and amid the spectacular scenery of lush woodlands, rock and cobalt-blue water, the 1,864 islands that make up the 1000 Islands truly lives up to its reputation as a world-class waterfront destination.
