Every season is special in the Haliburton Higlands. In winter we’re a favourite choice for winter fun - naturally! With hundreds of miles of groomed trails, riders love snowmobiling through the forests of Haliburton County. For a unique adventure there’s dog sledding, and snowshoeing. Our cross-country ski trails are second to none in Ontario, and the ice-fishing is exceptional. In fact, there's so many fun things to do you'd better plan on an extended stay.Whether you are looking for high adventure, a little speed, or simply a blissfully romantic walk in the woods, Haliburton will definitely WOW you in winter.
Come spring. Whether you're hiking or cycling, on an ATV or horseback, springtime in Haliburton will envelope all your senses. Winter's monochromatic shades reluctantly give way to a spectrum of greens and gold as the flora and fauna come alive. Passing the burbling brooks and streams, you hear Nature's symphony comes alive with the chorus of peepers, ducks, and songbirds celebrating the return of spring. Even the smell of spring is special. Pine, spruce, and oak are infused with the sweetness of maple scented steam billowing from a nearby sugar-shack. Nice.
Summer is simply brilliant in the Haliburton Highlands. Haliburton offers all the resources to make summer days and weekends fulfilling and memorable. Live theatre festivals, art studios, and artisans abound throughout the County. Canoeing on a pristine lake or charging whitewater rapids are all a stone's throw away. You have so many choices close to home.
For many, fall is their favourite season in the Highlands. A canopy of scarlet and gold spreads out before you as far as the eye can see. From Haliburton’s Skyline Park lookout to the southern Gateway to Algonquin, the township is ablaze with color. Your options are almost limitless. Take a walk in the clouds at Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Centre, a romantic canoe ride on a lake, or ATV the miles of trails...a new, breathtaking vista awaits you around every corner. The Haliburton Studio Tour in October offers the ideal opportunity to enjoy a drive to the hamlets and villages of the Haliburton Highlands, while exploring many of the art studios and galleries of the county.
