Operating on the trails will host the 2015 Dryland Dog-Racing World Championships, Timberland Tours employs experienced guides and 40 canines to propel adventure-seekers on year-round excursions of Pontiac County. Guides operate from headquarters in a rustic wooden cabin, which hosts customers inside or outside on the open porch. An adjacent barbecue and bonfire pits often blaze with friendly flames, and trophy and photo displays inside the cabin chronicle sledding victories and awards for particularly memorable ghost stories. In winter months, two-person sleds carry riders down wooded trails, and in warm weather, lightweight wagons send visitors soaring along on dog-carting trips. Timberland Tours fuels its sleds using highly trained teams of Alaskan pointer, husky, and greyhound mixes.

From its perch alongside the Desert River, the Château Logue Hotel & Golf Resort invites guests to swing their way through the countryside charm of Golf des Trois Clochers’ nine-hole golf course. The course showcases an array of difficult hole designs, ranging from the 160-yard-or-fewer layouts of the par 3 first and third holes to the fourth hole’s 553-yard tee-to-green terrain. After pencilling in their final scores, golfers can refuel at the recto-bar and lounge on the terrace while munching on paninis, or they can waltz into le Poste de Traite, an elegant restaurant with a menu of steak and seafood, and dining room decor that harks back to a bygone era of horse-drawn carriages and caddy-drawn golf carts.

The course at Arnprior Golf Club strikes a tricky balance with its target-style layout. By rewarding precise shot making, the links present a challenge for experienced players, yet the simple layout makes the course accessible to first-timers and PGA pros with amnesia. The 11th hole, called the Quarry Hole, is a deceptively challenging test: though the pin is only 91 yards away, it's surrounded by a water hazard and a sloped green ready to send errant shots into the drink.
