Welcome to the City of Timmins, Ontario’s premiere four-season destination for adventurous vacationers, families, and travelers from around the world in search of unique, un-crowded and memorable experiences.
No matter what time of year you find yourself in the “City with a Heart of Gold”, you’ll be fascinated by its beauty, history, and small city charm. Friendly people and the great “Northern Hospitality” that we are renowned for will greet you.
With hundreds of lakes and rivers on our doorstep, you will enjoy the solitude you expect from a fishing vacation. Our natural water reservoirs are teeming with pickerel, northern pike, trout, bass, and sturgeon.
With year round recreational opportunities your visit here will be a memorable one. Whether you’re searching for hiking, biking or ATVing, canoeing, kayaking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing, or dog sledding adventures, Timmins will surprise you with its unlimited outdoor adventure opportunities. With our predictable winters and endless network of snowmobile trails, Timmins has become a favorite destination for thousands of avid snowmobilers in search of the ultimate, snowmobile vacation.
Amid the untamed wilderness that surrounds us, Timmins’ cosmopolitan flair offers something for even the most discriminating taste; a top-rated symphony orchestra, choirs, theater groups, an ultra modern public library and the Timmins Museum National Exhibition Centre. Great shopping is available and includes three shopping malls, several big box stores, and quaint specialty boutiques located in our downtown core.
While in the City, I invite you to discover our mining heritage through one of the many industrial mining tours available throughout the summer or get up close and personal with the majestic Canadian Moose on a tour of the Cedar Meadows Wildlife Park.
The City of Timmins is a multi cultural mosaic deeply rooted in European and Aboriginal cultures and every year we celebrate the best in culture, music, the arts, and sports. Whether you are attending the Multi Cultural Festival, Aboriginal Day, the weekly outdoor Summer Concert Series or competing in the annual Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival, your visit here will be rewarding.
Come visit and enjoy our hospitality, our friendly people, our attractions and our natural, pristine scenic beauty. Getting here is easy. You can either drive or fly directly to the Timmins Victor M Power Airport with service from Air Canada Jazz, Air Creebec, Bearskin Airlines, Porter Airlines, Wasaya Airways and Thunder Airlines.
Timmins, the great outdoors and more!
