A spring trip is the perfect way to experience this magical time of year in Ontario. Spring activities can happen quickly, so be sure to check out the links here when planning your spring trip. As soon as the sap is flowing, we’ve got many different maple syrup experiences, both for kids and adults alike.

Some of our premiere resorts offer discounts during March – Elmhirst’s Resort & Spa, for example, lets kids stay free throughout March! The opening of the historic Trent-Severn Waterway over the May Long Weekend is a celebration not to be missed, especially in Bobcaygeon! Also in late May you won’t want to miss the Lilac Tour and Apple Blossom Tyme Festival.

Spring also means the fish are hungry, and Kawarthas Northumberland just happens to have some of the best multi-species fishing in the entire province. Every spring trip you could think of includes the special experience of seeing fresh growth and new life return to our beautiful natural areas.
