As millions of Canadians rediscover the rejuvenating capabilities of outdoor recreation, a mid-summer escape into the heart of the sprawling, tranquil Haliburton Highlands becomes all the more enticing. While Sir Sam’s Inn & Spa is closed until June 15, 2020, due to COVID-19, we’ll be welcoming families, groups, and couples just in time for summer’s official arrival. We certainly miss all of your smiling faces, but ensuring the safety of all Ontarians is our top priority right now. Rest assured, our classic Ontario inn will be here when the dust finally settles and life slowly returns to normalcy. Thus, we decided to curate a handy summer guide to the Haliburton Highlands, one of Canada’s true hidden gems.
The Haliburton Highlands: Pristine Canadian Wilderness
While we’re exceedingly proud of our revitalizing spa and gourmet cuisine, we fully understand that the summer of 2020 will most likely be all about nature. It’s probably about time that we all spend a full summer immersed in Mother Nature’s warm embrace, surrounded by nothing but the soothing sounds of woodland critters and sprawling Haliburton Highlands backcountry. The Highlands boast towering pines and poplars, curious wildlife, serene backland lakes, and some of the most secluded hiking and biking trails in the province. There are approximately 2,500 square kilometres of sheer wilderness at a metaphorical arm’s length here at Sir Sam’s Inn & Spa. Here are 10 unique ways to explore the Haliburton Highlands this summer:
