Sudbury Travel Guide
Welcome to Sudbury!
Greater Sudbury, which includes communities such as Sudbury, Capreol, Nickel Centre, Onaping Falls, Balfour, Valley East and Walden, is the largest city in Northeastern Ontario with a population of approximately 165,000 people. Located 390 km (242 mi) north of Toronto, Sudbury is serviced by major highways, including the Trans Canada Highway, and acts as a gateway to more remote parts of Northern Ontario. At one time, Sudbury had a reputation for being incredibly polluted due to the city's largest industry—mining. However, over the past couple of decades, Sudbury has undergone a furious and costly clean-up project, which has seen almost eight million trees reintroduced into the city's landscape and international attention for its concerted environmental efforts. With over 250 lakes and a ski hill within its boundaries, the City of Greater Sudbury has plenty of recreational opportunities. Soak up the summer sun and have some fun at the annual Summerfest in August.
