Take the ferry to Wolfe Island!
After a 20 minutes, very nice ferry ride, you can discover beautifull Wolfe island. This little community,whose only link to mainland is by ferry still has a few old traditions. You can go there and walk around and apreaciate the nice, country-style atmosphere, buy your goods at the general store, etc..
This boat tours guide you on a relaxing cruise through the 'heart' of the islands with an optional stop-over at famous Boldt Castle.
Some Ottawa or Montreal inhabitants have their second home on the banks of the Saint Lawrence. In Winter, they can skate on the frozen water.
A cruise on Saint Lawrence : a pleasant way to discover the Thousand Islands one by one.
Take the exit 696 on Hgw 401. Price : 11$ per capita.
A lot of islands that are large enough for houses to be built on are purchased by rich and famous families whose members came to stay here (we've heard) in the summer. (Winter must be too cold!)
These are pictures of some of the islands and houses. From the taped narration played during the trip we learned that there are actually more than 1,000 islands along the US-Canada border.
