Northern Ontario has every reason to brag when it comes to our fall colours because we have the best in Ontario. The leaves start to change in early September, with peak times taking place mid-September to early October. What makes the fall season so special here is that you not only see the changes, but feel them as well. Trees turn magnificent shades of bright red, golden yellow and fiery orange, the air turns crisp and fresh, and wildlife ventures out further to find food to get them through the winter. This is the perfect time for a driving tour not only to see the colours but to experience the region's culture - there are countless fall fairs, festivals, and artisan tours that take place from September into October.
