About this Trip

The Bruce Peninsula is emerging as one of Canada's most popular outdoor travel destinations. On this trip we’ll head off the beaten path to uncover some of the Peninsula’s hidden gems. Leaving the crowds of Tobermory and the Bruce Peninsula National Park behind, we’ll hike along the Bruce Trail to beautiful, less crowded, Georgian Bay shorelines, climb on escarpment cliffs, kayak over turquoise waters, and enjoy delicious local meals.

Sample Itinerary

The trip begins in the evening before our first day of adventure, you'll check into your lodge in the late afternoon where your guide will meet you for a drink and to chat about what to expect over the next few days.

Day 1 - After a luxurious breakfast, we head out to the Northern part of the Bruce Peninsula to hike some of the most spectacular portions of the Bruce Trail. Making our way out of the forest, we’ll hike along stark escarpment cliffs that plunge straight into the turquoise waters of Georgian Bay. Stopping at the water’s edge for lunch, we’ll enjoy a picnic along the shoreline. The brave among us will jump into the frigid Georgian Bay waters to cool off while the rest of us relax and enjoy the view. After completing our hiking loop, we’ll head into town to explore before making our way back to the lodge, to sit back, relax and get ready for tomorrow's adventure.

Day 2 - After spending our first day exploring the coast of the Bruce Peninsula on foot, today we’re going to get on the water! We’ll start off with a basic introduction to sea kayaking, practising efficient paddling, sharp turns and riding waves. After an introductory lesson, we'll enjoy a quick lunch before pushing off the rocky beaches to explore. We'll take our time, paddling over clear turquoise waters to spectacular cliffs and peninsula outcrops. Finishing up our kayak trip, we’ll have the chance to explore the town of Lion's Head before dinner. We'll cap off the day by taking advantage of the Bruce Peninsula’s spectacular dark sky preserve. With a roaring fire and some peace and quiet, we’ll reap the benefits of the Peninsula’s strict light pollution policies as we watch the night sky light up!

Day 3 - On our last day on the Peninsula it’s your turn to “choose your own adventure.” We can rock climb at Metcalfe Rock, scaling escarpment cliffs high above Beaver Valley, we can explore beautiful forests while learning the ins and outs of single-track mountain biking, or, we can take one last hike along the legendary Bruce Trail.
