PRESS RELEASE: Get active in Ontario’s winter wonderland! From the snow covered ski slopes of Blue Mountain to the rolling hills of Algonquin and an exciting array of experiences, including cross-country skiing and snowshoeing to ice climbing and dog sledding, winter in Ontario is definitely not a time to hibernate.
Dog sledding is a must do Canadian experience and there are many excellent dog sledding outfitters to choose from in Ontario, all passionate about their dogs and the natural world. In the Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve, visitors can learn the dog sledding basics. A mandatory introduction will provide all the information needed to drive the dog sled teams through the scenic forest trails of the Haliburton Forest and give an overview of this nature awareness weekend.
Situated in an island setting overlooking Lake Temagami, in north-eastern Ontario, Blue Haven Lodge offers a unique winter experience. Visitors can live in fully equipped on-ice bungalows and fish from the comfort of their bed while experiencing the perfect fishing getaway. Another popular activity on site is snowmobiling, thanks to the nearby access to Ontario’s extensive trail network.
Embark in an authentic winter expedition in the wilderness around the Algonquin Log Cabin. Voyageur Quest offers the possibility to learn about winter travel techniques while enjoying a night camping in a heated prospector tent at the end of Surprise Lake. This three day trip includes meals and the help of an experienced guide.
Ontario’s snow-covered landscapes offer some of the best setting for ice climbing. Visitors don’t need to be experts to dive into the unspoiled wilderness and the ice routes of Thunder Bay, Red Rock and many more. New adventure seekers can sign up of a safe introduction to ice climbing with Yours Adventures and spend a weekend relaxing in cabins on the shores of Boshkung or Mountain Lake.
