The village of Haliburton is a cultural mecca nestled in a landscape of lush forestland found on the edge of Head Lake. Whether sun or snow, there is no shortage of activities and sights to see in this town, located in the heart of the Haliburton Highlands.
For a unique artistic experience visit the Haliburton Sculpture Forest, which you will find nestled in the outskirts of town in Glebe Park. Here you will discover art in a serene, natural setting where you can walk, cycle, and cross-country ski down outdoor trails that feature outdoor sculptures created by Canadian and international artists.
If you’re visiting Haliburton during the month of August, we recommend attending the Forest Festival that takes place in the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve. The festival provides the extraordinary experience of having musical performers delight your ears while you peer out onto the serene and secluded Bone Lake.
Visiting during the winter months? The Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve is also the perfect place to embark on a dogsledding tour through their extensive forest trails. Winter sports enthusiasts can also enjoy snowshoeing and skiing at Sir Sam’s Ski & Bike.
For an extended trip that doubles as a way to express your artistic side, take part in an intensive, in-studio art class available through the Haliburton School of The Arts at Fleming College. Or if you prefer perfecting your voice and achieving perfect pitch, check out the Highlands Opera Studio where you can sign up for opera classes through their Community School.
