The Group of Seven's story resonates with people around the world and has showcased Canadian landscape painting in a whole new light. The Group's love of the land is evident in their travels, experiences and expressions of Northern Ontario as displayed in their paintings. These landscapes and moments don't just live in history - they're yours to experience as you travel throughout Algoma and the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Tom Thomson toured the Mississagi River in the summer of 1912. During this trip along the river, he found Aubrey Falls, which he describes as "One of the most superb beauty spots in North America". Thomson's trip to the Mississagi was one of the first ventures for an artist into the Algoma wilderness. In his letters, he inspired other artists to travel north and take in the natural beauty of the Canadian Shield and to let the landscape influence their own sense of wilderness. These artists followed in Thomson's footsteps, going deeper into the Algoma region. They spent many years locating, sketching and painting beautiful scenes that are symbols of Canadian heritage today. This group of artists became known as the Group of Seven and their artwork is world-renowned today.

Aubrey Falls Provincial Park is a natural wonder and offers a chance to step back in time and experience the natural Canadian wilderness in its truest state. The Group of Seven came to Algoma to capture their moment of Canadian identity, now it is your turn to Capture Yours.
