Come and explore hundreds of kilometres of snowmobile trails, lakes and rugged wilderness. Celebrate with us during our two annual festivals: the 10 day long Winter Carnival and Summerfest!
Home to the world renowned Polar Bear Habitat, Henry and Ganuk will be happy to see you and may even have a swim with you. Not a friend of the furry animals? Take a swim at our local beach or in our community pool, which hosts a waterslide, lazy river, sauna, hot tubs all set in a picturesque setting of palm trees.
Our free bike share program allows tourists to cycle within our community and out to the countryside where you can see beautiful scenery among the plowed fields and lakes. Not to worry there are bikes for the kids too, even the little ones that need a ride in a trailer!
Discover Commando Lake downtown Cochrane! Yes, we have a lake downtown. Hang out at a hub of recreational activity, swim at the supervised beach, go down the waterslide, rent a kayak, canoe or a paddle board… Water fun is endless at Commando Beach.
Often referred to as the gateway to the North, Cochrane is your starting point to access the James Bay Coast. Hop on the Polar Bear Express and make your way to Moosonee to experience the aboriginal culture and traditions.
