After a short ferry ride across the harbour, we’ll explore the car free neighbourhoods on the eastern Islands and visit historic landmarks such as the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse and the Royal Canadian Yacht club. Of course, we’ll also enjoy the scenery, including the parks, the lake, the beaches, and the cottages. Along the way, you’ll hear stories about key people and events from the last 200 years of the island’s remarkable history.
On our evening tour you’ll also enjoy the sunset and some incredible views of the Toronto skyline as it lights up the evening sky. As evening falls, the daytime crowds and tourists retreat back across the water to the city. You’ll experience what few tourists and locals get to experience: the beauty of the islands after dusk!
Our morning tour is also a great way to experience the serenity of the Toronto Islands before the daytime crowds arrive.
The tour is suitable for beginner to advanced riders, as we move at an easy pace and make plenty of stops to talk and take in the sights. The Islands are safely lit after dark. Our guides are expert city riders and very familiar with Toronto.
