The Haliburton Highlands is just two hours north of Toronto, but it’s
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
the vibrant arts community that continues to flourish – with artist studios,
theatre, outdoor concerts, opera and the Haliburton School of the Arts.
