Part of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, the 1000 Islands rest in the shadow of mountains carved by multiple glaciers over millions of years. A diverse biological landscape, the 1864 islands are frequented by a variety of animals as they migrate between Canada and the United States. Lush forests, marshlands, and waterfront architecture help create a setting picturesque enough to prompt involuntary yodelling.

Within this ecologically bountiful area, 1000 Islands Kayaking's certified instructors lead courses that teach fundamental and advanced techniques. Their programs can focus on topics such as exercise or can be geared toward kids and fostering leadership skills. Alternatively, staff members rent out kayaks for self-guided journeys lasting up to a week, equipping adventurers with maps that show detailed routes and the homes of celebrity fish.

Guides also plot more elaborate trips, scheduling luxury camping expeditions complete with private cooks or engineering romantic getaways to Gananoque made all the more memorable by full-day guided tours. Their trips remain engaging no matter the size, luring in everyone from curious couples to business groups, wedding parties, and social clubs.

Ground Zero Paintball provokes the most colourful of warfare on its more than 200 acres of land and plays host to teams of dedicated paintball warriors. War games meet high-velocity paint tag in this action-packed test of strategy, stamina, and human-tree blending in which players aged 10 and older compete for the cleanest victory on a variety of fields such as XBall, a fortress, and woods warfare. Collect gear if need be, then proceed to belly-crawl over rocks and dash between bunkers as small paint-filled capsules hum past; then open fire, tucking, rolling, and shouting in slow motion, as enemies, best friends, or coworkers are decimated in a splatter of colour. Ground Zero fosters safe, challenging play, marshalling fairness-fixated referees to remedy wrongful hits and 20-foot-high netting to prevent stray splats from mussing spectators on the five voyeur-friendly fields. In between deploying secret missions appropriately named after Top Gun characters, battlers can heat up competitive spirits at Ground Zero’s grill-laden covered picnic areas.
