Discover Your Inner Artist along the Lake Superior Circle Tour

In the fall of 1921, artist Lawren Harris first travelled the north shore of Lake Superior.  Moved by the rugged beauty of the landscape, he continued to return for many years, later accompanied by other members of the Group of Seven.  These camping trips to the Superior’s north shore were a creative well-spring and inspired a large number of pieces including Harris’ 1924 work, Pic Island.

Today, travellers can explore the Algoma and Superior North Shore landscape preserved in paint by Lawren Harris while driving the scenic Lake Superior Circle Tour along the TransCanada – Highway 17.   Whether you’re a painter, photographer or poet, let these landscapes inspire you to new creative heights.
