This is what perfectly describes Bruce Peninsula National Park, a Canadian landscape across the Niagara Escarpment and covering a large wooded ridge in southern Ontario.

One of the peninsula's flagship attractions is the Grotto, a picturesque limestone cave where you can admire a basin of blue water overlooking the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay.
