Undiscovered cottage country is just a stone’s throw away!
You might think that what you need to produce multiple skips of a single stone across a lake or river is the perfect rock, but folks in the know will tell you what you really need is ideal waters.
Maybe that’s why the Almaguin Highlands, the “undiscovered cottage country” just north of Muskoka, is perfectly suited to host the summer’s most unique contest: The Almaguin Highlands Stone Skipping Contest. Beautiful lakes and rivers await the kid in you to flick a granite missile across their surfaces.
From just north of Huntsville up to Loring-Restoule, and from Algonquin Park west over to the French River near Parry Sound, the Almaguin Highlands area of Ontario is home to some of the most stunning landscape in the province. With winding waterways, great hiking trails, fantastic fishing, a fine selection of accommodation and enough history to school a professor, the Almaguin Highlands has yet to introduce all its splendour to many folks in the province.
This sweet, little idea – the 2nd Annual Almaguin Highlands Stone Skipping Contest – showcases just how beautiful the region is, starting with hundreds of blue sparkling lakes and rivers (including Bernard Lake, which lays unofficial claim to being the largest freshwater lake in North America without an island).
Entering is easy – just head to the Almaguin Highlands, visit a lake or river of your choice, make a stone skip attempt and record it in a photo or video, then load it to the Almaguin Highlands Information Centre Facebook page. You’ll then be entered to win a trip to the area at accommodations of your choice – with a $50 gas card to make your visit even more enjoyable. [Enter here]
Undiscovered cottage country is just a stone’s throw away this summer. Head to the Almaguin Highlands in the Explorers’ Edge region of Ontario – and get ready to be delighted!
