Come Wander
Winter Adventures

Canadians share a love for the great outdoors and, when the temperatures drop, we don’t hide inside. The harsh conditions of winter only make us more eager for authentic experiences that allow us to embrace our roots, explore our vibrant communities, and play. Whether you’re being pulled through the wilderness by a pack of Siberian Huskies, listening to the nostalgic sound of hockey pucks against home-made ice rinks during one of the world’s largest pond hockey tournaments, or toasting a Timbit over an outdoor fire, Ontario’s Highlands is the perfect spot to experience a true Canadian winter.
