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&#8217;s most unique neighborhoods.</p> <p>Contiki Tours visit the Thousand Islands when traveling between <a href="/contikipedia/articles/montreal">Montreal</a> and <a href="/contikipedia/articles/toronto">Toronto</a>, <a href="/contikipedia/articles/canada">Canada</a>.</p>
