Elaora Gorge 8B

Elora Gorge Guided Group Hike

 

EVENT DETAILS

You’re invited to join our scenic day hike at Elora Gorge, a stunning natural attraction in Western Ontario. This hike is set in a very picturesque area, surrounded by rolling hills and Mennonite farmland.

The town of Elora is famous for the spectacular Elora Gorge which seems out of place in the middle of this agricultural area. Formed by glacial meltwater, the 2 km gorge is noted for its 24 m (80 foot) limestone cliffs descending into the Grand and Irvine Rivers. Adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers regularly flock to Elora to enjoy some fun and take in the glorious natural beauty. 

Our CHARTER BUS will shuttle us from Toronto’s Dufferin TTC Station to the gorge, located about 120 Km from the city. Those who choose to drive to destination will have an option to meet our group there. Length: 12 Km.

DATE: Sat, November 10

TIME: 8:15 AM

 PRICES:
a) By SHUTTLE BUS $48.50 (Park entrance incl.)

b) Direct DRIVERS $10 per car (Park entrance NOT incl.)
