Breathe deeply and gaze in awe and wonder at the majestic giant of Mazinaw Rock, towering 100 metres out of the water and 245 metres below. Watch the past come to life as you explore the largest collection of visible Indigenous pictographs in Canada, or have your breath taken away by views that have inspired the works of many artists, including the Group of Seven.
