Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley

Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley

Deep inside all of us is a wanderer. It’s the little voice that tells us to follow our own path, trust in ourselves and embrace the unknown. It’s this part – our inner wanderer – that finds its happy place in Ontario’s Highlands – a region where unexpected discoveries are around every corner; where you can nourish your soul and disconnect from the every day; where you can expand your mind and express your creativity; and where you can reconnect with yourself and the people who matter most in your life.

Step out of the city and into our world to find yourself while strolling through quaint small towns, lush forests, and beautiful countryside. Ontario’s Highlands is only 2.5 hours east of Toronto and a half an hour west of Ottawa, but a world away from it all. It’s a world filled with natural beauty, friendly locals, sparkling waterways, and countless hidden gems.

Whether it’s enjoying the quaint rural charm of our towns and villages; exploring the rugged landscape rich with fossils, gems, and minerals; riding some of the most twisted and scenic roads in the province; or taking a moment to soak in the serenity of the great outdoors on one of our secluded lakes, there are endless experiences in Ontario’s Highlands to indulge your inner wanderer.
