    Bright waters and happy lands

    Just under 2 hours from Toronto, Kawartha Lakes – whose name comes from a word meaning bright waters and happy lands – is a collection of charming rural communities nestled among numerous lakes and rivers. Miles of meandering trails beckon cyclists, hikers, and horseback riders alike to explore the stunning landscape and enjoy the abundance of wildlife that calls the region home. When the bright snows of winter arrive, these trails are transformed into runs for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. After a day of adventuring, Kawartha Lakes vacation rentals are cozy places to relax before heading to an outdoor theater for a night under the stars.

    Ice fishing and farmers’ markets in Kawartha Lakes

    As snow begins to fall and ponds freeze over in Kawartha Falls, winter festivities begin. Nearby hills are a magnet for snowboarders and skiers, while those who like a slower pace of activity can head to a lake for ice skating, ice fishing, or a rousing game of ice fishing. For warmer fun, there are artists to meet and galleries to visit. When the snow melts, Kawartha vacation rentals are a welcoming home base for shopping local farmer's markets, taking in a round of golf, or spending a leisurely day on the sparkling waters of the lake fishing for walleye, muskie, and bass.

    Legendary artists and ancient beliefs in Kawartha Lakes

    The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail is an old railway bed that has been turned into a stunning recreational corridor that meanders through wetlands, farmlands, woodlands, and rural communities, affording walkers a behind-the-scenes look at Kawartha Lakes. Meanwhile, you can explore the rich heritage and artistic talent of the region on the Kawartha Lakes Arts and Heritage Trail. It leads to artisan studios and craft shops, galleries, and places to meet local legends, mingle with creative types, and buy some unique souvenirs.

    Summer kayaking and winter skiing

    With sun-drenched summers and snowy winters, Kawartha Lakes is a playground for lovers of the wilderness. As the sun sparkles across lakes and rivers, kayaks and canoes are peaceful ways to navigate the watery pathways that meander through the woods and around islands. Once the freeze of winter settles in, it's time to hit the trails with snowshoes and cross-country skis, or charter a trip with savvy local fishermen. Adventurers can rent snowmobiles to explore the woods and catch a glimpse of local wildlife. On cold nights, you’ll relish warming up by a crackling fire in Kawartha Lakes vacation rentals.

    Wilderness beauty and bird-watching

    Nestled in a lush rural region north of Lake Ontario and east of Lake Huron, Kawartha Lakes is close to pristine lakes and fragrant pine forests. Nearby Algonquin Provincial Park stuns with rocky ridges, crystal-clear lakes, and hills covered with maple trees that turn brilliant colors every fall, while the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands offer a true wilderness for adventurers to explore as they chart their own trails. Bird-lovers will find endless delight at Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, where they can spot great blue herons and osprey, scarlet tanagers, and common nighthawks. Bring your binoculars and feast your eyes on nature at its most liberated.
