With twenty major lakes in Haliburton County, there are endless opportunities for year round recreation and fun. The 70,000 acres Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve boasts 300 kms of hiking, biking and snowmobile trails and the world-renowned Wolf Centre is just one of its many attractions.
Our crystal clear waters are perfect for swimming, fishing, boating, sailing, canoeing and white-water kayaking. In the winter try the dog sled tour or enjoy great skiing and snowboarding at Sir Sam’s Ski Resort. Trusty ‘Trails & Tours‘ will introduce you to hundreds of miles for ATVs on old logging roads and 200kms for cross country skiers. We have numerous golf courses to choose from, and for the kids — paintball, mini-golf, go carting and horseback riding. Or let a geologist lead you on a rock hunt and mineral dig.
Haliburton is a haven for artists and budding artists. Take that week watercolour or stained glass course you always wanted at the Haliburton School of the Arts, visit our galleries and museums and join the Fall Studio tour. And if you’re able to pull yourself away from the lake to be wined and dined for an evening , there’s always live music and live theatre to be had in the towns of Haliburton and Minden.
We are proud of our pristine wilderness and blue diamond lakes. We promise you a vacation you’ll not soon forget. This is cottaging at its best. Once you’ve experienced the enduring magic of our lakelands, the Haliburton Highlands will be forever be your holiday destination, your home away from home.
