Truly Canadian

Looking for those quintessential Canadian experiences? One window into Canadian culture is the Haliburton Highlands.  Here you will find 600 freshwater lakes, rugged landscapes, majestic maple and pine, small rural towns and hamlets, rich histories, art and music inspired by nature, culinary adventures,  warm hospitality, colourful characters, and oh so many stories.

Come wander with us in #MyHaliburtonHighlands to discover what it is like to be Canadian. You will paddle, hike, ski, climb, and snowshoe like a Canadian. You will discover hidden gems in this part of rural Ontario, literally and figuratively. The gem might be an apatite crystal from one of the most geologically diverse regions of Canada. The gem might be a piece of amazing art from a local artist or a tasty lunch of local wild edibles.

There is a good chance you will connect with an 18th century fur trader, a birchbark canoe builder or traditional winter travel expert and step back into Canadian history. Or share a cup of 'Earl of Bog" tea with some fine local folk.  Or share some stories with a local celebrity. The loon, the moose and other random acts of Canadian nature will inspire you to collect and create pottery and glass art.  

If you like a challenge you can run with the sled dogs, scale a 15 m ice wall, portage a canoe from lake to lake, or hike the hills of Algonquin Highlands.   

And so, we invite you to be part of our Canadian community in rural Ontario.  Have a look at the many Canadian experiences we offer or let us design your Canadian adventure.
