When you count the number of people that live in the Sunset Country Travel Region and then the number of lakes that are here, there really are more lakes than people, about 25,000 more in fact. Not many other regions in Canada (or the world for that matter) can boast something like that. The sheer number of lakes, the vast spaces they cover and the life they support is truly amazing. Lakes are part of who we are up here, and we'd love to share them with you!
While the majority of our visitors come here to go fishing, they often leave with something much more than memories of big fish. It is the time out on the water, the scenic vistas, the conversations in the boat with friends and family, and the natural beauty of the shorelines that really stick with you, and make you want to come back again, and again.
