It’s the greatest of the Great Lakes, the world’s largest freshwater lake by surface area, containing more volume than all the other Great Lakes combined. Stare out at Lake Superior and you’ll see no shore on the horizon. To explore the North Shore, rent a bike for an unforgettable 700km drive along the Trans-Canada to Sault St Marie. With the lake glimmering on your right, pass small towns and cute roadside attractions (the birthplace of Winnie the Pooh, the giant goose outside the town of Wawa), as well as impressive canyons and waterfalls.
