Escape to another world
Just minutes from the busy, bustling downtown core of the city you’ll find the Toronto Islands–a five-kilometre oasis of 15 interconnected islands that locals have been escaping to for fun, relaxation and tranquility for over 200 years. Embark on this Toronto Islands bike tour and explore the beauty of the islands, the history and attractions, a quaint cottage enclave which is the largest car-free community in North America and stunning views of the City skyline.
Available as a Twilight Bike Tour too
As evening falls, the daytime crowds and tourists retreat back across the water to the City. On our Twilight Islands Tour you will get to experience the islands after dusk, including a beautiful sunset and magical views of the twinkling Toronto skyline as it lights up in the evening.
See the Islands Year Round!
The Islands are a popular destination during the spring and summer months, but are largely forgotten by locals and visitors during the fall and winter – a great time to experience the serenity of the Islands in a way that very few locals do! We provide cycling blankets (ponchos) and gloves to keep you warm. All of this means fall and winter are a wonderful time to take our Islands Bike Tour!
When you book this bike tour you’ll also get 15-20% discounts to other great Toronto attractions that you can visit before or after your tour.
