You are invited to join our guided hiking adventure in one of Canada's favorite hiking destinations -- the Bruce Peninsula! Located in spectacular Georgian Bay, on the shores of Lake Huron, this region is home to the Bruce Peninsula National Park, a UNESCO-protected area featuring thousands of acres of lush green forests, peaceful inland lakes, flat-rock beaches and limestone cliffs towering over the Bay's turquoise waters. The Peninsula also houses a section of the Bruce Trail, Canada’s longest walking path. This section of the trail stretches for 170 Km from the town of Wiarton to Tobermory, in Ontario, through green forests and along cliffs with gorgeous vistas over the lake and the rocky coastline. Every day we will explore a different part of the trail. The hikes are quite difficult with steep climbs and rugged, rocky terrain. This trip is suitable for advanced-level hikers only.
Max 11 participants. We recommend that you register on this site by April 1 to secure your spot.
