Enjoy the summer without hurting the environment!

It’s officially summer, and for many of us, that means a hike in our carbon footprints: from powerful air conditioners to the gas used on our weekly trips to the cottage, it’s hard to be environmentally minded. That’s why we’ve come up with some amazing outdoor adventures that will keep you having fun without hurting the environment.

Check out these great options:

Long Point Eco Adventures (Southwestern Ontario)

Haliburton Forest & Wildlife Reserve (Central Ontario)

Get your adrenaline pumping with a zip-lining adventure, or venture across a swinging suspension bridge.

Here you’ll find pristine wilderness with opportunities to hike, mountain bike, fish and camp out. The reserve is open year-round, too!

Treetop Adventures (Northern Ontario)

Boréal Forest Adventure Travel (Northern Ontario)

Come play in the treetops, and conquer an obstacle course! You’ll climb ladders, rock walls, balance beams and more.

“Glamping” is a new pioneering adventure in Canada's Boréal Forest: Glamorous Luxury Camping. It’s a rich and natural ecotourism experience in Ontario's wilderness, with all the comforts of home.

Voyageur Quest’s Toronto Island Trips (GTA)

You can book all kinds of different paddling adventures that will take you in and around Toronto’s beautiful islands.

With options like these, you’ll have your pick of eco-friendly activities all summer long. For more ideas, visit our Outdoor Adventures page.
