These packages are just a sample of some of the amazing things you can do this summer in our region. Explore more getaway packages by clicking here.

Horsin’ Around in Comfort Country

Get on your saddle and ride the rural routes of Comfort Country, with the quaint La Dolce Vita B&B as your host. With this long weekend package running from August 2-5, you'll have a hootin’ good time at the Tweed Stampede & Jamboree watching in amazement as the ladies break-a-way rope and the men thrash on a bareback saddle. Then once you've learned a thing or two from the pro riders, it's time to get on a high horse of your own with a horseback riding adventure. Discover the charm of small town Ontario with lunch or dinner at restaurants the locals rave about, and celebrate the magic of the region’s rural past at the agricultural heritage museum Farmtown Park.

Gone Fishin’ in Scenic Bancroft

Hang the “Gone Fishin” sign on your office door and escape to the scenic shores of Baptiste Lake in the Bancroft area. Hone your pickerel and bass fishing skills and knowledge with local experts, and dedicate some serious time to catching some big fish with the use of your own fishing boat and gear. A tour of a real fish hatchery and good ol’ pub style lunch complete this angler’s paradise getaway, which is perfect for all ages and skill level – no fishing experience required!

Historic Travel-ways on the Rideau Canal

Explore the meandering waterways and celebrated museums of the historic Rideau Canal, and be transported back in time with a two night stay at Montague House B&B in a suite tastefully furnished with century-old antiques. Spend a few days on the oldest continuously operated canal system in North America - Ontario’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site – and learn the story of the Canal’s rail and waterway adorned past. Paddle by canoe to historic locks, visit the historic site’s interpretation centre and the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario, and enjoy some dining in downtown Smith Falls.

Wild Water Wonders in the Whitewater Capital

The wild water wonders of the Ottawa Valley will be revealed in this exciting getaway introducing you to the Whitewater Capital of Canada. Experience the thrill of Ontario’s majestic Ottawa River with a safe and exhilarating day of rafting at RiverRun Rafting & Wilderness Resort, then wind down after your adventure in a private cabin with a view of the river. When you’re not basking in the sun along the shoreline, enjoy the sweet and savory cuisine of The Nook Crêperie in picturesque downtown Pembroke, and visit Ontario’s Natural Underground Wonder the Bonnechere Caves for a tour through the site of an ancient tropical sea.

Artful Adventure in Haliburton

Head to Haliburton this summer to experience one of Ontario’s most artistic of communities – maybe most-well known for having the highest number of working artists per capita in the province. Your hosts, one a traditional Irish musician and the second a local visual artist, welcome you to their Studio & B&B located in a restored century home (impromptu music sessions are known to happen so feel free to bring an instrument). During your stay you’ll relax to a night of live theatre, enjoy dinner in the village, tour local galleries and outdoor sculptures, and take an adventure through the trees on the Haliburton Forest’s Walk in the Clouds Canopy Tour.
