Historically Iroquois territory, then loyalist after the American Civil War, the Thousand Islands are now the dream of any vacationer seeking “his” island to establish his haven of peace.

Composed of a multitude of island archipelago of all shapes and sizes with varied reliefs, homes that are perched are equally impressive as each other. From simple cabanons, to fairytale castle, enough to dream for all tastes.

Besides the houses of dreams, one of the major attractions of the archipelago is wildlife. Due to the microclimate warming the region, there are several species at the edge of their habitat. In addition, the St. Lawrence Valley is a crossroads of the five major forest regions of eastern North America. The Thousand Islands are at the center of this south / north, north / south migratory axis. The archipelago is a mandatory stop for many migratory birds to the delight of ornithologists.

Leaving Quebec City or Montreal early in the morning to get to our starting point near Kingston, where we will launch on a beautiful sandy beach hoping not to disturb the families of Red-winged Carob in the nearby cattails . Our first night will be in Thousand Islands National Park after an afternoon paddling through a clear water channel to finally arrive on “our” island.

DAY 2 : Thousand Islands National Park Kayaking

Get lost in a meander of thousands of islands, sailing on a clear and transparent water allowing us to see the seabed. This is what awaits us all day. What a pleasure it is to look at the most interesting chalets and to disturb the Canada Geese who act as a “watchdog” when the owners are not there! Thousand and one idea and envy comes to mind … We will land for a second night in a smuggler’s cove.
