This trip takes place in the Frost Center Area, one of southern Ontario’s most accessible paddling areas. The Frost Center is a part of the Haliburton Highlands Water Trails which is a wonderful combination of large and small lakes as well as rivers making this area perfect for canoeing. Our picturesque 3 day route will take us to some spectacular lakes, with amazing campsites under huge pine trees.
It’s the perfect introduction to backcountry camping. The relaxed pace and education provided on this trip is great for families with young children and/or first timers! We start the trip with learning how to paddle and make our way to our campsite. This involves a portage or two on a maintained trail and crossing a few lakes. In camp our guides will help you set up tents and get comfortable for the evening. Our guides will also cook gourmet meals on the fire while you have the opportunity to swim, relax and explore.
Every canoe trip involves some physical activity. To give some perspective on what is involved, we will normally paddle for 3-4 hours each day, and will portage from one lake to another, which involves walking with a pack on a trail. At the end of this trip, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment for learning to move your canoe in the direction you want and finding a deeper connection with nature.
We acknowledge that the Haliburton Frost center is located on the traditional territories of the Anishinabek Nation and covered by the Williams Treaty (1923), and that we are visitors to this land.
