THUNDER BAY – Wasaya Wilderness Adventures have announced the launch of its new regional tourism website www.WasayaWild.com
The new website was designed to attract more North American and International visitors to Northwestern Ontario. The new site features the regions’ Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal communities, prime fishing and hunting destinations, fabulous ecotourism opportunities, an Events Calendar, a Photo Galley and an easy-to-surf navigation system. Visitors will find lots of great outdoor activities by surfing the new Regional Destinations Map and a new Cultural Map.
The interactive map lets visitors gather information and link to the website of the travel opportunity that they are interested in.
The new website also showcases the Association’s membership and Wasaya staff will be responding to online tourist enquiries by mailing new Visitor Guides to those enquires. There is even a “readable” online version of the Visitor Guide for those people who require immediate travel information.
Each of the new Association’s members has a direct link to their own websites so they can chat with potential customers, market their own products and take reservations. Visitors to the site can also sign up for future Wasaya tourism newsletters that will be marketing new Wasaya Travel Vacation Packages.
The new packages will feature exciting outdoor vacations throughout Northwestern Ontario using member businesses, Wasaya Airways and the new Tourist Association’s floatplane partners in Nakina, Armstrong, Pickle Lake, Sioux Lookout and Red Lake.
Wasaya Wilderness Adventures is based at 300 Anemki Place on the Fort William First Nation in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is Northwestern Ontario’s newest not-for-profit Tourist Association offering tourism information and vacation package tours as well as marketing, training and product development to both Aboriginal and Non Aboriginal tourism businesses. It represents a large geographic tourism area extending from the Manitoba border in the west to the Hearst/Wawa/Moose Factory area in the east, from the Minnesota border and Lake Superior in the south to Hudson’s Bay/James Bay in the North.
The Associations’ mandate is to provide an effective support structure for the Aboriginal Tourism Industry in Northwestern Ontario by using mutually beneficial and harmonious partnerships that bring value to all the partners and create economic development and jobs in First Nation communities and on their traditional lands and at the same time, maintaining First Nations social, cultural, spiritual and environmental integrity and values.
