Wintertime in Thunder Bay: take time to both pause and reflect, but also connect to ourselves, others, nature, and more importantly - NOW!

Here and Now

Here and Now, the first film in a series from Tourism Thunder Bay, tells the stories of Victoria Wilen and Arthur Fiedler, both grew up in Thunder Bay, both moved away to find different opportunities and both ended up returning to Thunder Bay with a new appreciation for the beauty and wonder of the city and Lake Superior. Back in Thunder Bay, Vik and Art discover a place they hadn’t seen as children and teens growing up in the area – a place where you can earn a living doing what you love and still be on the lake minutes after the work day is done; a place where you can relax and enjoy the things that make you happy in a way that often isn’t possible living in a larger centre.
