Once a thriving uranium mining town, the city of Elliot Lake is now a comfortable and cozy community with opportunities for discovery and adventure in every season.
With a famously long snowmobiling season, as well as downhill and cross-country skiing, winter heats up. In the summer, explore lakes and rivers by kayak or canoe, trails for ATV tours and hiking or camping at nearby provincial parks and conservation areas.
