Visiting Ontario for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Fishing and Hiking to Skiing & Biking

Ontario – the most populous province in Canada – serves up several options for the ideal getaway. Home to the capital city of Ottawa, and the lively metropolis of Toronto, Ontario knows a thing or two about entertaining.

When visiting Ontario, why not take some time to relax? Try an afternoon of golf in Toronto, host to more than 200 courses, and spend your getaway on the green.

Want a romantic escape? Niagara on the Lake is home to several scenic wineries open to visitors. Attend wine festivals, take in a sunset, and try the fairways during your trip to southern Ontario.

In Ontario, your family can take to over 400,000 lakes and rivers by canoe or kayak, hit the biking and hiking trails, or break out the skis and snowboards.

Try anything as strenuous as rock climbing to as laid back as angling and fly-fishing in northern Ontario.
