Visit and explore Haliburton County
Tourism Region:
"Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley"
Canada, Ontario, Tourism, Travel Guide



Haliburton and surroundings - many thanks to MapArt

Haliburton in the tourism region: "Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley"

Welcome to the "Haliburton Highlands".

The following picture we have borrowed from the "Travel Planner" for Ontario.
Haliburton is located at the "Head Lake". We believe it gives you a good impression of this area.
You are very close to the well known Algonquin Park.
But enjoy it first here - you can find your "own" lake. There are about 6000 of them im the "Haliburton Highlands".
Go hiking, play golf, rent a boat, go swimming, watch animals, go fishing and enjoy your catch for dinner.
There is so many opportunities to relax and many accommodations and restaurants are waiting for you.
We loved it and we always met nice people which had time for us!

Haliburton

Haliburton is a small place like many other ones in this area.
I think it's important to show you what you can expect and to convince you that it's true. I am not paid by anyone for my travel guide.
I think this site gives you a typical impression of the area.
It is also not far from the famous Algonquin Park
Many of the lakes are connected and Google's map confuses me a bit with the names.
Hike, play golf, rent a boat, read a book. Watch the wildlife, go swimming, if you come in summer, catch the fish for dinner yourself. There is so much to do!
But you do not have to concentrate solely on nature. There are numerous small galleries, museums and artist studios worth visiting - especially if the weather is not good for sunbathing.

We always loved to stay in a cottage when we had enough time and could find one. Advanced booking is mandatory.
We checked normally during trip several places and booked one in time for the next year. Check also reviews on the Internet!
In the Haliburton area you should try to spend at least a certain part of your vacations in a cottage resort. Maybe you are lucky.
We always loved it to be in a well equipped cottage surrounded by nature and only few steps away from a private beach.
Certain events may be of interest for you. We enjoyed some of them when we came in the right time. We had fun not only in Canada but also in Germany.
Just ask when you are here. Sometimes small communities are much better in organizing them than bigger cities. If you come from another country it is always nice to take also these impressions back home.

Snowmobiling

If you are an adventurous type - consider to come in winter. Explore the beautiful are with a snowmobile or by cross country skiing. Ask for guided tours if you are a beginner.
For safety reasons we recommend that. Normally all the required special clothing including helmets can be rented for guided tours. We did this in Newfoundland and Elizabeth, my wife was excited.
About 1200 km of prepared routes are waiting for you. Just contact one of the local "Snowmobile Associations".
If you prefer cross-country skiing, there are over 300 km of slopes available.
An alternative adventure is dog sledding.
