James Bay Frontier Trip Planner
Welcome to James Bay Frontier!
Visit the northern wilds of Ontario in the James Bay Frontier region. Located in the northeast corner of Ontario, the area's vast stretches of untamed land are filled with cliffs, canyons and lakes, where boreal forests mix with tundra and muskeg resulting in a stark natural beauty. Rich with wildlife, the area is known for both its fishing and hunting, as well as for its polar bear and beluga whale viewing opportunities. In Timmins, the region's largest city, visit the Shania Twain Centre, a memorabilia museum dedicated to the homegrown country music superstar or take an underground gold mine tour. When visiting Cochrane, tour the Tim Horton Museum which focuses on the history of the hockey player and his iconic coffee and donut chain or swim with polar bears at the local conservation habitat. See the entire region by train on the Polar Bear Express as it travels north from Cochrane to Moosonee at the edge of James Bay.
