You are invited to join our guided hiking adventure in one of Canada's favorite hiking destinations -- the Bruce Peninsula National Park! Located in spectacular Georgian Bay, on the shores of Lake Huron, this UNESCO-protected region features 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 section of the Bruce Trail stretches for 170 Km across the Bruce Peninsula from the town of Wiarton to Tobermory, 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. Advanced-level hiking skills required to attend.
Max 10 participants. We recommend that you register on this site by April 1 to secure your spot.
Optional round-trip transportation from Toronto aboard a chartered passenger van is available. The van departs Toronto on Wed, August 14 at 8:15 AM and is expected to return there around 9:00 PM on Sun, August 18. An optional trail shuttle service by van with private driver is also available for an extra charge. All hikes are LINEAR, so those who wish to drive or carpool to the trails will have to arrange their own two-car shuttle service between the trailhead and the end point of each hike.
We will stay at an elegant lodge in the lakeside village of Lion's Head. Our lodge features free WiFi, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining room and several sitting areas. Accommodation is in double (if joining with a partner) or twin rooms with private bathroom, shared with a fellow group member. There are NO single rooms available. If you don't have a roommate, you will be paired with another participant of same gender.
Meals are not included, but you may request a daily breakfast for an extra charge of $15 per day. Contact the trip organizer for details. There are also restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance.
