Blue Mountain

158mi / 254km

From the bustle of the city to the idylic peace of the Blue Mountains. A village-resort, an assortment of shops, restaurants and bars centre around a small lake at the foot of the mountain. During your two nights here why not take a ride on the Ridge Runner Mountain coaster, kayak on the lake, hike the mountain trails or take the more leisurely Segway tour or visit Scandinave Spa. There are plenty of activities to choose from in the area from bike trails, wineries, cideries, micro breweries, apple orchards, zip lines, and scenic caves adventures, as well as beaches and the town of Collingwood – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Tobermory

It is a relatively short drive today to the harbour village of Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula. To the southeast, Bruce Peninsula National Park is known for the Bruce Trail footpath on the craggy Niagara Escarpment, and the Grotto, a wave-carved cave in Georgian Bay. The village lies next to Fathom Five National Marine Park, which is home to the Flowerpot Island sea stacks, 19th-century lighthouses and multiple shipwreck dive sites. A glass-bottom boat tour of Fathom Five is a must during your stay.

Algonquin Provincial Park

190mi / 306km

Algonquin Provincial Park is a ‘must see’ for jaw-dropping wildlife encounters and spectacular scenery. Summer brings a carpet of wildflowers and when Autumn comes, the forest is ablaze with reds, oranges, and yellows. Algonquin is home to a population of over 3,000 moose as well as white-tailed deer, black bear, and wolf. For something a little different, we recommend biking or hiking trails through the mountains, forests, and lakes. Your accommodation for the next two nights is a rustic but charming lodge within the park.
