WELCOME TO GREAT SPIRIT CIRCLE TRAIL
We offer nature-based and cultural tourism from an Aboriginal perspective
Our tours are hosted by Aboriginal people who have carefully planned itineraries that offer a true reflection of the history and culture of the region and its original inhabitants – the Ojibwe, Odawa and Pottawatomi peoples. Truly blessed by the Creator, this is one of the most beautiful and serene regions in Northeastern Ontario Canada. Manitoulin Island, the largest freshwater island in the world and Sagamok are home to the “Anishnawbek” – the Ojibwe, Odawa and Pottawatomi people with a long and storied history, rich culture and abundant lands. The warmth of the people, the serenity of the forests and waters and the vibrant culture of the Anishnawbek people are yours to discover as you “Experience the past” and “Enjoy the present.”
Experience history as you retrace ancient canoe routes. Unwind to the soft murmur of legends and stories from days long past. Relaxing day trips, rustic or refined accommodations, traditional regional cuisine and a wide variety of shops, galleries, and educational cultural activities enhance the natural beauty of this very special region.
ABOUT OUR CULTURE
Take some time to learn about our culture
The best way, of course, is to visit and spend time in our region which we hope you will plan to do. In the meantime, however, we’ve assembled some information from available resources and from local teachers and elders that we hope will interest and inform you about the special character of our region and its people.
