Best Time to Fly to Thunder Bay

Canadian summertime usually lasts from June to August/early September, and whilst this is a beautiful destination to enjoy in the sunshine, it can also be quite costly at this time. Schools have their summer vacation during these months, meaning the cost of flights and accommodation will most likely increase due to the influx of tourists. April, May and September are much more favourable months in terms of weather and overall cost, but remember that Thunder Bay is also host to a number of winter sport and skiing events during the colder months, with many tour operators offering exclusive winter deals.
