Couple on Hiking holiday in Canada

There are many walks from which to choose, ranging from short, easy terrain walks that take an hour or so, to longer, more challenging walks for the experienced hikers among you!

If you choose to take the Self-Guided Walks from the several for which there are maps available, you may like to take a packed lunch while you spend the day in the lovely Ontario countryside.

Create the Hiking Holiday of your dreams - Hike every day if you like, or perhaps take a gentle Walk every other day, the choice is yours!
