Point Pelee National Park

Hike through marshes and jungle-like environs and visit mainland Canada’s southernmost point in this small but impressive national park.

Point Pelee National Park excites with its unusual climate, Carolinian forests, marshes, beaches and wildlife. The wilderness covers an area of nearly 6 square miles (15 square kilometers) and is a major migratory route for birds and monarch butterflies. Paddle through wetlands, hike along woodland trails and go looking for rare bird species.

The national park is within the Carolinian zone, where the temperatures are warmer than similar locations at the same latitudes elsewhere in North America. A consequence of this is a rich biodiversity.

Start your exploration at the Visitor Center where exhibits highlight many of the park's features. From April to October, you can take the shuttle service from here to the Tip, the most southerly point of mainland Canada. Then go on a self-guided tour of the wilderness or join a ranger-guided interpretative walk.

Hike through new forests of red cedars, willows, hop trees and cottonwoods. Venture into older forests which resemble jungles, and where light barely penetrates the dense foliage. 

Canoe or kayak through the freshwater marshes. Listen to the sounds of the swamp and spot turtles, frogs, snakes and muskrats. You can also explore part of the marshlands by strolling along the boardwalk. Rent a bike and navigate the dips and turns of the Centennial Bike and Hike Trail, which starts close to the Marsh Boardwalk.

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, visit the park for the annual fall and spring bird migrations. More than 390 species have been recorded here, with most arriving during the spring. Species include large numbers of songbirds. The park also witnesses a huge influx of monarch butterflies in late spring.

In the warmer weather, go swimming at one of the beaches and enjoy a picnic at the White Pine picnic shelter, which is enclosed during winter.

Point Pelee National Park is 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Windsor, Ontario. Opening hours vary according to the season, so check the park’s official website for the most up-to-date information. There is an entrance fee to the park, which has parking and washroom facilities.
