Day 2
Toronto

Explore the sights of Toronto with your included City Pass. Ascend the lofty 457m CN Tower for fine views across the city, and walk along the glass floor – if you dare that is. Pay a visit to the delightful Casa Loma, a gothic revival house built in the early 20th century. While you’re in Toronto you’ll take a day trip to Niagara Falls and spend the day admiring the dramatic cascades and raging torrents of water thundering over the magnificent 51m cliffs.

Days 3-4
Blue Mountain

Admire the stunning views of Georgian Bay from Blue Mountain, a resort village set among trees, hills and mountain slopes. It’s a peaceful place, with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, and a huge array of activities. Choose from its high rope course, the Apex Bag Jump, which basically involves jumping into a giant bag, and the Ridge Runner, a thrilling mountain rollercoaster for riders of all ages. For a fun-filled adventure head down to the nearby Scenic Caves for zip-lining and sweeping lake views. After all that excitement, you might be looking for some relaxation. In which case, the tranquil Scandinave Spa is just the ticket. This collection of hot pools, steam rooms and a sauna in the heart of the forest is the perfect way to unwind, and is especially appealing when the autumn leaves make an appearance or when sprinkled with a light dusting of snow.

Day 5
Muskoka Region

Continue to the beautiful Lake Rousseau near Minett in the Muskoka region, a tranquil spot among tree-dappled forests. There’s plenty of activity down on the water – kayak, windsurf or cycle along the lakeshore, have a go at paddle boarding, or simply admire the view from your hotel room. The luxury JW Marriott The Rousseau offers two pools, one indoors and one outdoors, and a long list of spa treatments too. So sit back, relax and treat yourself.

Days 6-7
Algonquin Provincial Park

Grab your paddle, hop in your canoe and paddle the still waters of Algonquin Provincial Park, keeping a look out for moose, beavers and birds. You’ll stay at the tranquil Arowhon Pines, a secluded lodge right on the edge of Little Joe Lake, a comfortable spot in the middle of the wilderness. When not out paddling you can take a wildlife watching boat trip, try your hand at fishing or have a go at paddle boarding. Or simply sit and soak up the peace and quiet and admire the forest and lake views with a chilled glass of wine.

Canoeing in Algonquin Provincial Park

Days 8-9
Kingston

Arrive in Kingston, the former capital of Canada and gateway to the gorgeous 1000 Islands region, a collection of 1,864 islands scattered across Lake Ontario and spilling over into New York State. The islands vary in size; some are dotted with castles and historic houses, others are little more than a rock and a lonely tree. You’ll set sail on a lunch cruise around the islands, taking in the peaceful scenery and admiring the picturesque lake reflections. You’ll also have time to explore the historic fort and churches in Kingston and try out some of its tempting eateries.
