Timmins Hiking Day

The Mattagami Region Conservation Authority and the Wintergreen Fund for Conservation invite residents and visitors to come out to the Hersey Lake Conservation Area to help celebrate Timmins Hiking Days and to enjoy the great outdoors. The event is held twice a year, once in the fall around the beginning of October and again in the winter, towards the end of February. The hike is designed to highlight our community trail system and the many health benefits associated with walking and cycling. Volunteers will be on hand to lead several guided hikes of differing lengths while describing some of the unique plants and animals we have here in Northern Ontario. Various outdoor groups including Timmins Search and Rescue, the Timmins Naturalists and the Ministry of Natural Resources will also treat hikers to special presentations.

The Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival

The Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival has come a long way in a relatively short period of time. It was launched in 2009 to coincide with the City of Timmins’ Centennial Celebrations where 4 milestones were being recognized and celebrated by the residents. Having a kayak challenge was a natural. After all, the Mattagami River wound its way through the city and the sport of kayaking was taking off like wild fire, throughout North America, Europe, Latin America… and showed promising growth. It was also an opportunity to draw attention to the positive contributions that the Mattagami River had provided for the residents of Timmins over the last 100 years or so: fur trade route, city’s drinking water, logging operations, hydro electric production and of course recreation.
There is something for everyone at the 8th Annual Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival. This non-gated event is a showcase of kayak & stand up paddleboard challenges, seminars & workshops, arts & culture exhibitors & vendors, live performing arts which include free admission to live concerts both Friday & Saturday night, an interactive Aboriginal village, fireworks, and children’s activities. This end of summer celebration occurs in Timmins, Ontario August 24-26 2018.

Here are some of the highlights you can expect from one of the best and popular kayak competitions in Canada and Ontario in particular.

  • Cruising the Mighty Mattagami Pontoon Ride.
  • Family Leisure Paddle & Shore Lunch.
  • Arts, music, dance, kids fun, leisure tours and fireworks
