Dining-Day or Overnight Trips

Fishing Getaways

With the opening of fishing season many lodges and resorts north have put together more than 20 getaway fishing packages including overnight accommodation

Seasonal Attractions Re-Openings

Many Ontario’s seasonal historical, cultural and natural attractions are opening for the season over the next month. As an example Sainte-Marie among the Hurons re-opens on April 28, and Scenic Caves Nature Adventures in Collingwood will be opening on the first May weekend.

Spring Drives-road trips north

Road trips north at this time of the year are the best times to view wildlife, as the trees are not in full foliage. It is not unusual to see moose around the Algonquin Park area and deer throughout Ontario. A walk in the woods to see the masses of Ontario’s flower the Trillium blooming is a must for every visitor to Ontario. 400Eleven has assembled nine suggested spring travel routes with directions and places to stay and visit along the route.

The Algonquin Park area has a number of May getaway packages that will appeal to the naturalists and outdoors adventurers who love to hike and canoe, but want to stay in warm comfortable accommodation.
