8 Unique Winter Getaways in Ontario 

What makes a Canadian winter special is not only being able to snuggle close to the warmth of the gentle sizzle of a fireplace but also to explore the epic landscapes of evergreens.

These aren’t your run-of-the-mill weekend trips to a large resort, spa, ski resort, or snowboarding village. Instead, these are unexpected winter activities of at least one overnight or more.

Yurt Glamping

The grounds of Nature’s Harmony becomes a winter playground as well with its giant tubing hill, cross-country skiing, hiking, kick sledding, and snowshoeing.

Cottages at Boshkung Lake

It is located in the Haliburton highlands of Ontario with the closest town being Carnarvon. Along the lake are a collection of seven cottages The Pines at Boshkung.

Winter Cottage and Dogsledding

I will say that this is easily the best winter activity when you consider the cuteness of the purebred Siberian Huskies, the adrenaline rush of mushing from behind a 5 foot wooden basket.

With the help of Temagami Outfitting Company, you can make this happen without having to do it on your own.
