Haliburton County, where you’ll find Minden, is your gateway to Algonquin Park and so much more. Only two and a half hours from Toronto and about a four hours’ drive from Ottawa, Minden makes a great escape come sun or snow, rain or shine.
Walking through town is like walking through a painting. Stroll down the Minden Riverwalk along the shores of the Gull River and take in the spectacular view. Then continue into town to wander through the retail shops and grab a bite to eat.
Algonquin Park offers so much for outdoor leisure activities. When the snow is falling, you can cross-country ski down paths frequented often by deer or snowshoe, too. In summer, the lakes are the limit, with boating, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming to fill your days. You can stay in one of the lovely inns or bed and breakfasts in Minden or camp in the park for a more rustic experience.
