Deep inside all of us is a wanderer. It's the little voice that tells us to follow our own path, trust in ourselves and embrace the unknown. Follow that voice to Ontario’s Highlands, a place where your imagination and authentic sense of discovery are the only compass you need. Ontario’s Highlands is only 2.5 hours east of Toronto and a half an hour west of Ottawa, but a world away from it all.
