Summer Activities in Collingwood & Blue Mountain

Summer Holidays

Fractured plates of shale that form this Georgian Bay shore tell an ancient story. The rock contains invertebrate fossils 455 million years old. Now, the flat rock is ideal for launching a sailboard, fishing or watching a spectacular sunset. At the base of Collingwood's Blue Mountain, it's a short trip to Wasaga Beach, the Bruce Trail and historic Huronia.

Summer Vacation

Custom BBQ Cruises, River Tours and Sunset Cruises, Summer Fishing Charters,
Salmon Fishing, Fly Fishing, Learn to Fly Fishing, Bass Fishing, Canoe & Kayak Trips.

Enjoy an outing on the water in and around the Collingwood Harbour.

Savor a BBQ or a sunset cruise, and swim in the shadow of the Nottawasaga lighthouse. Or sail on the “Endurable” a replica of a Watt’s skiff formerly built in Collingwood and used around the Great Lakes and the west coast during the late 1800’s.

For hikers some of the best preserved trails in the world are available along the Niagara Escarpment. Tours vary in length and difficulty and can be customized for groups.

The Central Ontario North region has some of Ontario's best mountain biking. Hardwood Hills outside Barrie in the Simcoe region is considered by most enthusiasts to be the best trail system going. The center is dedicated to mountain biking (cross country skiing in the winter) and the variety, condition and design of the trials reflect this. Just a short distance from Hardwood is another of Ontario's finest, the Mansfield Outdoor Centre. The trail system is well designed and challenging with a lot of variety. Like Hardwood, many of Ontario's races are held at the centre. To the west an array of other challenges await you in the form of the Kolapore Uplands, the Loree Forest and the Three Stage area. To the east, in the Algonquin/Muskoka regions, head for the Bracebridge Resource Management Centre, Buckwallow Cycle Center, the Minnising Trail or our favorite Porcupine Ridge.

The last five to ten years has seen the ski hills make a real push in the area of MTB trail development. The world class resort at Blue Mountain is one example. Further afield in the bordering regions you'll find excellent biking at the Haliburton Center, and the Durham and Ganraska Forests, each of which offers a variety of other outdoor activities as well.
