Thank you to everyone who entered the recent Ontario Tourism competition to win a wilderness adventure to Ontario with Ray Mears. Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership has now revealed the winner of their UK prize draw. Congratulations to Jonathan Armstrong (pictured with his wife below) from Manchester, who was drawn at random from over 26,000 entries to the competition.
Jonathan and his wife Joanne will embark on a seven night adventure of a lifetime to Northern Ontario. They will travel north to Thunder Bay on the shores of Lake Superior and then onto Wabakimi Provincial Park for four nights of wilderness camping and survival in one of the world’s largest Boreal forest reserves. With no roads in the park, the small group will travel by canoe and bush plane. The winners will learn the art of bushcraft survival skills led by Ray Mears.
John said: “I couldn’t quite believe I’d won this amazing trip of a lifetime. My wife and I are looking forward to exploring the wonders of the Canadian wilderness. We are big fans of Ray Mears and we love any type of outdoor adventure. This really is a dream come true and we are very grateful to Ontario Tourism.”
The prize also includes a £500 voucher for Cotswold Outdoor and two GPS devices provided by Garmin.
Ray Mears is working with Ontario Tourism in the UK to highlight the many wilderness adventures across the province of Ontario in Eastern Canada. For more information on wilderness adventures in Ontario, please visit Ontario Travel.
