Description

Description

This is just one idea for a 2 week self drive holiday around the beautiful Province of Ontario in Canada. This can be adapted to suit your exact requirements and links well to its neighbour Quebec province. Ontario also has a good rail network and some of this holiday can be achieved by rail. Call us for more ideas

Day 1: Arrive Toronto
Fine shops, rivalling those of New York, and fantastic restaurants await. Spend time on Toronto’s waterfront, take a leisurely boat cruise and visit the many sights that this vibrant city has to offer, climb the CN tower and brave the ‘Edge Walk’… Take a day tour to see the magnificent Niagara Falls and include a boat trip on the famous ‘Maid of the Mist.
Three nights Toronto
As an alternative, why not pick up you hire car a day earlier, drive to the Falls, then spend a night in Niagara-on-the-Lake?

Day 4: Kingston
Collect a hire car and drive west to historical Kingston. Meander along the waterfront admiring Kingston’s architecture and explore the 1000 islands on a boat tour. Drive, walk or cycle the beautiful 1000 Islands Parkway.
Two nights Kingston

Day 6: Ottawa
Drive northwards to Canada’s capital city, Ottawa. Watch the familiar sight of the ‘Changing of the Guards Ceremony’ outside the Parliament Buildings and walk or cycle along the banks of the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Visit Byward Market, a centre for fashion, music, art and tourist sights.
Two nights Ottawa

Day 8: Huntsville
Head west to the Muskoka Lakes region, an area full of wonderful lakes and fantastic scenery. Take scenic drives and explore Algonquin Provincial Park, a wilderness park and home to wildlife such as the illusive Moose.
Four nights Huntsville

You may consider adding in a true wilderness adventure here with opportunities for canoeing and hiking – camp or stay in a log cabin in the heart of Algonquin

Day 12: Blue Mountain Resort
Drive south to Blue Mountain Resort. A ski resort during the winter months, in the summer the resort offers a wide range of activities including mountain biking, hiking and tennis. Or take a short drive down to the resort’s own private beach on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay – relax on the sandy beach or paddle along the peaceful shoreline.
Two nights Blue Mountain Resort

Day 14: Depart Toronto
Drive back to Toronto where you will drop off you hire car in time to check in for your return or onward travel arrangements.

Niagara on the Lake is a step away from the cosmopolitan life of the town at Niagara Falls.  You’ll need a car to reach it as it is not on the public transport network, but as a base to explore the falls, it is superb.

What our clients say

Client Feedback

‘I was not sure what to expect from Niagara Falls – a magnificent natural feature, or a huge commercialised resort.  Whilst the commercialised resort is there, it does not detract from the beauty and magnificence of the Falls themselves.  We got totally soaked on our boat trip, but it was worth it!’
