The Thousand Islands is a geographical spectacle thousands of years in the making. When the St. Lawrence River changed course 10,000 years ago, it changed an Ice Age debris plain into a fantastic river landscape dotted with literally thousands of small islands. Rich industrialists would build beautiful homes on these picturesque islands over 100 years ago. A Thousand Islands boat cruise is the perfect way to experience the natural beauty of the St. Lawrence as well as the architectural beauty of one of North America’s most unique neighborhoods.

Contiki Tours visit the Thousand Islands when traveling between Montreal and Toronto, Canada.
