Weekend Adventures from Toronto – Kakabeka Falls!


By: Jim Bamboulis

Hey y’all!

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 is a HUGE outdoorsy kinda city with plenty of activities and natural wonders to keep your heart rate up and your adrenaline pumping. A top destination in these parts is Kakabeka Falls, a provincial park that has loads of natural beauty, national and historic significance and thundering falls so powerful they’re called The Niagara of the North.

The word “Kakabeka” come from the Ojibwe First Nation word gakaabikaa, meaning ‘waterfall over a cliff’. The falls drop 130 feet, the rock face is composed of unstable shale and the fossils date back 1.6 billion years!

Get a real feel for Kakabeka’s power and watch my 1-minute vlog. For more info about the park and what else you can take in, hit up the Ontario Parks website. And of course, subscribe to the Travel Mammal YouTube channel to get more videos of other travel + food experiences worldwide!

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.
