Mackinac Island and the northern shore of Lake Huron boast some of the most picturesque landscapes in North America, and this matchless natural beauty is the setting for a fascinating loop around the third-largest freshwater lake on the planet. Depart from historic Detroit to car-free Mackinac Island for a sojourn back to a simpler time. Then set off to savor the quaint, historic and culturally rich islands and small towns along the north shore of Lake Huron. Conclude your journey with two nights in the world-class city of Toronto.


• Hop from port to port as local interpreters help you discover charming communities.
• History comes alive in a stay at the Grand Hotel on historic Mackinac Island, where you explore by horse-drawn carriage.
• Board the Agawa Canyon Train for a 114-mile trek through the scenic Canadian wilderness.
