Tourism Atikokan

Atikokan is a fun, family-friendly community that takes pride in what it is, and never tries to present itself as something it cannot be, or does not wish to be. Though easily accessible, Atikokan retains a sense of remoteness and basks in the tranquility and relaxation that can only be found away from the big lights of the city. It relishes its small-town charm, and its ability to exceed everyday expectations.

We’re only too happy to have you here, whether it’s for a day, for a week, or a lifetime. We are the Canoeing Capital of Canada. We are the Gateway to Quetico Provincial Park. We are Naturally Wild
