Adventure Days In Ontario’s Lake Country
This Summer Ontario’s Lake Country and Tourism Simcoe County have partnered up to bring you coverage of some awesome activities and places in our region! Stay tuned for more coverage to come, but for now check out the fun we had exploring beautiful trails by segway and treetop trekking.
Starting our adventure days off with segway tours was a new experience. The tours are located at Hardwood Ski and Bike and are run through Go Tours Canada. You start your session off with a introduction to the equipment and they give you a quick lesson and then you are on your way.
The trails are in perfect condition and travelling by segway is an awesome experience. You have the option of choosing from a half hour to a full hour tour. The hour overall is a better experience because it gives to more time to get used to the segway and to enjoy the tour. Taking the hour tour also gives you the opportunity to ‘see the lookout’, a gorgeous stop along the way looking out over the beautiful forests spreading across Oro-Medonte.
Next we headed over to Horseshoe Resort for some treetop trekking. As before, we had a quick lesson and introduction for staying safe while climbing and how to properly use the equipment. Then we took to the trees! At first, I find there is always that wave of fear as you get to the top of the first obstacle but then as you keep moving forward you begin to relax and enjoy yourself.
The courses they offer are a great mix of different challenges and obstacles keeping the experience interesting and memorable. After treetop trekking we had the opportunity to try the MEGA ZIP that Horseshoe Resort offers. The MEGA ZIP is a 2000 ft zip line running from the top of the hill to the bottom. The zip-line is a flat fee and an overall blast!
Stay tuned for more coverage this summer and don’t forget to share your experiences with the #OntLakeCountry
