our city

Thunder Bay, Ontario

Thunder Bay is literally 8 hours from any other major city (lucky for us!), nestled in some of the most pristine outdoor territory should you be lucky enough to stay awhile and experience it. Our dirty little secret of what the local entrepreneurs have been up to in the downtown core, and the variety of fresh air activities you can experience all within 100 m to 15 KM, is quickly getting out.

Nestled on the shores of Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the world, with hundreds of inland lakes nearby; the fishing and watercraft opportunities are endless and the sunsets are spectacular. If you have ever wondered how our city got its name and happen to be in town during a storm, you are in the perfect location to feel the vibration.

The Haven Hostel is located a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where you can walk Port Arthur’s Marina, skate in the rink in the winter, skateboard the park in the summer, browse incredible local art inside and out, listen to live music for free along the water’s edge or enjoy rich local craft brew during one of our summer festivals or at one of the local pubs.

Whether you are on a shoe string or looking to treat yourself, the city caters to all of its visitors.
