No other season brings couples closer together – and no other destination in Ontario features as magical a backdrop as the Explorers’ Edge region in winter.
There’s something about winter in Explorers’ Edge that makes couples want to cuddle closer together. The woods seem enchanted, the landscape is hushed, and everywhere you turn there’s a crackling fireplace to warm yourselves by.
It’s just so darn charming wherever you go – across Algonquin Park, the Almaguin Highlands, Loring-Restoule, Muskoka and Parry Sound – and the slower pace of things allows sweethearts to leave the hustle and bustle of every day life behind, to focus on each other instead.
The ways to spark winter romance are as numerous as the snowflakes that fall.
Tread a new path together while snowshoeing or Nordic skiing on one of thousands of trail you can explore. Hold each other steady as you lead an excited team on a dog sledding expedition. Saddle up for a trail ride or canoodle under blankets in a one-horse open sleigh.
Grow together trying new experiences like winter camping or ice climbing. Glide along arm in arm over an outdoor rink or under the carpet of snow-tipped trees at the Ice Trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park (just north of Muskoka). Or pamper yourselves at a spa resort and indulge in some decadent fine dining and drinks.
For the romantically-inclined, winter is the perfect season for couples to enjoy an unforgettable getaway. With special offers available and plenty of accommodations, attractions, dining and shops to choose from, don’t wait for Valentine’s Day for an excuse to plan a date in the Explorers’ Edge region of Ontario.
