also a world away. Unforgettable countryside sculpted by towering rock formations, majestic forests, postcard-perfect vistas, and scenic, rolling hills. Whether you want to tube down a lazy river or shoot white water in a kayak, this is
the place. With more than 600 lakes and miles of picturesque rivers connecting
them, a person could explore our waters for a lifetime and never see the same
shoreline twice. The natural environment of the Haliburton Highlands inspires

theatre, outdoor concerts, opera and the Haliburton School of the Arts.
