Things to do on a Couple's Vacation in Ontario’s Highlands
One of the best couple's vacation activities that we often suggest is to head out to the Haliburton Highlands and embark on a Rock n' Horse Adventure. This half-hike, half-horseback ride through Haliburton Highlands is the perfect romantic activity outdoors. With the leaves changing colour each day, you’re sure to see some amazing, picturesque tree line landscapes, while feeling the fresh, cool fall air of Ontario’s Highlands. If horseback riding isn’t your forte, consider a trip to the Haliburton Sculpture Forest and take in the stunning local and international sculptures alongside the bright orange and yellow trees.
Another fantastic couple’s vacation destination is Sir Sam’s Inn & WaterSpa located on Eagle Lake. This year round country inn and WaterSpa is sure to have you and your loved one relaxed and in a state of peaceful tranquility. Enjoy the magnificent view overlooking the lake when you stay at one of the 10 romantic rooms available in the main house, or stay in a private lakeside cottage. While there, treat yourselves to a couple’s massage followed by a glass of wine by your private fireplace.
