  • Chicopee Tube Park
    Though the winter snow has melted, inner tubes continue to zoom down the routes at Chicopee Tube Park—now cruising atop Italian mats, designed for waterless tubing. A host of other outdoor attractions complement the park’s eponymous activity. Two ziplines—an 80-metre line for first timers and a 300-metre line for veteran fliers—let passengers glide above the treetops without having to hitch a ride on a passing pterodactyl. The Eurobungy trampoline also gives guests the gift of flight, granting harness-sporting park-goers the ability to leap up to 25 feet in the air, and the spider-web climbing tower offers stationary bird’s-eye views once climbers have hoisted themselves to its pinnacle. For low-to-the-ground fun, harnessed participants at the horizontal ropes can balance six feet off the ground, getting a taste of tightrope walking without that chalky, acrophobic aftertaste.

  • Deerhurst Resort
    Spanning a majestic 760 acres of waterfront wilderness, Deerhurst Resort entertains visitors with a dazzling array of amenities and activities just two hours north of Toronto. Guests relax in homey hotel rooms with feather duvets and pillows, with the main building a 10-minute walk from the lake. By the water, visitors can lounge on the beach, compete in volleyball matches, and learn to waterski, kayak, or canoe. Fishing boat rentals allow fishermen to venture to the center of the lake, casting lines in hopes of snagging sizeable northern pike and fabled lake trout made entirely of gold. Between May and October, golf enthusiasts rove the greens on two 18-hole courses, leisurely competing with friends or taking pointers from the golf academy's instructor, Dave Castellan. The warm weather months allow swimmers to frolic in three outdoor pools and tennis players to hit outdoor courts, including three lit courts so players can photosynthesize at all hours. Deerhurst also offers scenic pony rides for children and mountain bike rentals for cyclists looking to explore the surrounding countryside. Indoors, visitors can rev up their adrenaline on the rock-climbing wall or sink into a blissful trance with massages and pedicures at Shizen Spa. Because of a draconian government mandate demanding that people must eat food or perish, Deerhurst's chef Rory Golden sees that the resort's five restaurants offer a diverse selection of dishes for all palates. The staff demonstrates their commitment to creating seasonal fare with locally sourced ingredients by harvesting their own herbs, honey, maple syrup, and shiitake mushrooms on the premises.

  • Lakeridge Ski Resort
    Skis carve silently through the snow, the occasional shout echoing through the trees. During warmer months, these same trees conceal mountain-biking trails. Nestled in the Oak Ridges Moraine, the year-round Lakeridge Ski Resort contains enough attractions to entice outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes. A network of nearly 20 snow trails, including mogul runs, cover 70 acres of the mountain's rugged terrain and the former location of one ill-positioned fraternity house. These trails and three bustling terrain parks challenge skiers and snowboarders of all ages and experience levels. Alternatively, summer youth camps feature activities ranging from high-ropes courses to climbing walls. Lakeridge's visitors won't have to travel far to rest after a day hanging out with Mother Nature: the resort's proximity to Uxbridge provides easy access to several charming hotels and inns.

  • Skyloft Ski Resort
    When Skyloft Ski Resort first opened in 1944, visitors were hauled up the hill in a tractor. Years passed and those old-fashioned methods fell by the wayside, and Skyloft Ski Resort eventually transformed into the family-friendly ski haven it is today. Now, 21 runs and trails snake across the Skyloft landscape, and a more than 300-foot vertical drop sends skiers and snowboarders soaring down the powdery slopes. Away from the snowy oasis, The Lodge provides a space to warm up beneath its post-and-beam ceilings, with views that overlook rolling hills, woodlands, and nearby yeti settlements.

  • Toronto Adventures
    The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. create winter, summer, spring, or fall fun adventures by taking urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley and Copeland Forest, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron. Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail. Toronto Adventures also offers adventure bus trips, dogsledding, stand up paddleboarding, hiking, and sailing.
