Last summer, I collaborated with General Motors and Chevrolet Canada on an epic Canadian road trip. Starting in Thunder Bay, Ontario and ending in Toronto, I loaded up the Equinox and was grateful to experience a piece of Canada that I otherwise didn’t know much about.
Thunder Bay itself has a long history. Considered to be one of the top outdoor adventure locations in Canada, it has plenty of parks and activities to choose from. One such park is Sleeping Giant, a park that from a distance, literally looks like a human being lying on its back. Even from several kilometres away, it’s a daunting site. Just imagine hiking it…which is what I did.
With over 100 kilometres of hiking trails ranging from easy to excruciating, Sleeping Giant is a place you should not overlook if you’re in northwestern Ontario. It’s a top 10 Canadian park for sure and if you have a chance to visit, do it. Hiking it is rewarding and the views of Lake Superior are the big payoff.
Watch my 1-minute vlog to get more info about the park and get a better idea of what to expect from the Sleeping Giant. And of course, subscribe to get more videos of other travel + food experiences worldwide!
Hey y’all. I’m Jim. Cute pic, no? That kid went on to spend 16 years in the broadcast media world before starting up Travel Mammal, a site dedicated to working with brands to promote travel, food and cultural experiences.
Travel Mammal isn’t about the selfie or checking things off a list. It’s about experiencing both the journey and the destination. To breathe, learn and really absorb what’s around you, in the moment and experiencing in a way that is both memorable and meaningful.
Happy travels, y’all.
