Spring is finally here!
It has been a VERY slow start to the new season, but the warmer temperatures have arrived. And everybody knows that when the seasons change so do the outdoor adventures and activities. Our four-season playground always has a great roster of experiences so let’s dive right into our Top 5 Spring Activities.
This list is in no particular order.
Hiking is a great way to get outside and explore a variety of beautiful forests and wetlands dotting Ontario’s Lake Country. Visit any of the provincial parks and nature preserves to immerse yourself in the many sights and sounds of the season. Spring is the perfect time to go hiking because it’s not quite as warm as summer and many bugs are less active, making your journey a little more comfortable.
Cycling and biking is another fantastic way to connect with nature. In Ontario’s Lake Country you have the wonderful option of either road or trail biking. Both these experiences can give the rider the opportunity to challenge themselves in different ways. By choosing the duration and the terrain of your trip, your journey can be customised to fit your cycling needs.
Another season of paddling is finally here! With our updated paddling guide there are many options to look forward to. Pick one up today and explore any of the 14 paddling routes that are marked and documented. Discover small inlets or some open water this season and see a different side of our four-season playground.
Fishing is considered a year-round activity. However, as the seasons change, so do the styles of fishing. Spring and summer time are a great time to grab family and friends and enjoy this popular past time. Fish from the shore or rent a boat and head out on the water. Fishing is great experience for kids and adults alike. It’s easy to learn and can be a whole day adventure or just a nice activity for a couples of hours.
Throughout Ontario’s Lake Country we are blessed to have some amazing cultural and heritage sights to visit. From museums to historical buildings and locations we have it. Take a step back in time and enjoy the Coldwater Canadiana Museum. For wonderful art and historical pieces checkout the Orillia Museum of Art and History. Downtown Orillia is also home to some beautiful refurbished buildings such as the Orillia Opera house and don’t forget the summer long Streets Alive Festival!
