Less than three hours from Toronto and Ottawa, the Haliburton Highlands is nestled among the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield. With more than 600 lakes in the region, water enthusiasts interested in boating, canoeing, kayaking, and – of course – fishing will have found their paradise.
There’s something for those who remain on dry land, too. Thousands of kilometres of scenic trails await hikers, mountain bikers, ATV enthusiasts, snowmobilers, and skiers. Or pop into the community’s quaint towns and villages for your fill of shops, authentic dining experiences and best of all, country charm.
During your stay, we recommend experiencing our thriving and vibrant arts community, where you can sign up for jewellery and sculpture classes at our Haliburton School of the Arts or catch a performance at our annual summer festival. It’s no wonder the Haliburton Highlands is known as “A Natural Work of Art.”
