Ontario Highlands: Beautiful Area with Easy Access

Not far from Toronto

Long Lake in the Kawartha Highlands Park

Canada’s most populated province Ontario has a large southern highlands area to the east between Toronto and Ottawa.  It is home to many beautiful cottage lakes, forests, canoe routes, provincial parks and resorts.  Ontario Highlands can be reached in a half hour’s drive from Ottawa and two hours drive from Toronto. With 7,000 lakes and lots of great fishing, boating, camping and hiking it is a recreational cornucopia in the summer months and ideal winter recreational country too. In the north is Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario’s oldest and most well known park. The Ontario Highlands are now being marketed as a group of six regions each with its own attractions. The regions are: Comfort Country, Haliburton Highlands, Land O’Lakes, North Hastings, Ottawa Valley South, and Upper Ottawa Valley. There is a website for the highlands area: ontarioshighlands.ca
