Plan your next great getaway
The Great Waterway of South Eastern Ontario, so much more than you'd expect from a vacation, and so close to home. Come for the world's best walleye fishing and stay for great golf courses. Or settle into a deck chair in a Land O'Lakes cottage rental and then take a day or two to explore our heritage in historic Kingston, Fort Henry, or the living pioneer town of Upper Canada Village. Cruise the emerald green 1000 Islands by day and enjoy fine dining with locally sourced foods with one of the regional wines of Prince Edward County by night. With thousands of pristine lakes and rivers, the scenic
Rideau Heritage Route, golf clubs and the beaches and dunes of Sandbanks Provincial Park, you may think we're all about the great outdoors. But the Great Waterway is a surprisingly sophisticated wilderness. Whether you come for fishing, golf at great clubs, boat tours and rentals or bike tours, you'll find five-star dining in elegant wineries and restaurants. Take a wine tour, sample artisanal foods from local farms, and shop for local arts and crafts. Elegant comforts are never far from sun, water and adventure in South Eastern Ontario. Who says you can't have it all?
