The Trent-Severn Waterway

Just east of Toronto and just west of Kingston, the Trent-Severn Waterway is a National Historic Site of Canada. Built mostly in the 1800s, the Trent-Severn Waterway winds its way through the iconic Canadian Shield, remote lakes, quaint villages, and some of the best multi-species fishing grounds in Ontario.

Many of the locks along the waterway are at the heart of towns and villages with vibrant cultural scenes and delicious farm-to-table culinary experiences. The Trent-Severn is more than just a waterway. With a great variety of trails, parks, and scenic driving routes along its storied shores, travelers can enjoy the Trent-Severn by boat, by bike, on foot or by car.
