6 TREETOP ADVENTURES
Location: Goulais River
Ride the Big Zip, play some paintball or test your agility on the tree-top obstacle course. Trek across cables, beams, and logs, cross wobbly bridges, swing like Tarzan, zip line with speed, and test your balance as you maneuver through many obstacles, all while safely attached with two carabiners.

7 WALK-IN-THE-CLOUDS
Location: Canopy Tour, Haliburton
Take a “Walk in the Clouds" through treetops on the world’s longest canopy walkway at Halliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve. Over half a kilometer long, the canopy boardwalk winds through the treetops some 10-20 meters above the forest floor. A platform suspended from the treetops above, becomes the gathering place where your guide elaborates on the forest environment surrounding you.

Coming in June:
Canada’s longest zip line at 2,680 feet. Eagle Canyon, 40 miles east of Thunder Bay.

Other Explorations
Still looking for something unique to get you outdoors before the snow is all gone? Here are some other adventure experiences to enjoy with the boys or the family before beach season arrives.

McKay Island Lighthouse
Be a “Keeper of the Light" at the 1907 McKay Island Lighthouse on Lake Huron. It is one of the few lighthouses in Ontario offering accommodations. You can still climb the ladder to the beacon’s rampart (quaintly referred to as the ‘widow’s walk’) for an amazing panoramic view of the North Channel of Lake Huron. Stay here as a staging point for snowmobiling the Bruce Mines area.
