Look up and experience 360 degrees of spectacular night lighting at Torrance Barrens that is free of the pollution of the city lights. Designated a conservation reserve in 1997 and a Dark Sky Preserve two years later, Torrance Barrens is just a two hour drive from Toronto. It's the perfect location for stargazers to be treated to the colourful brilliance of the northern lights. Other recreational activities to do at Torrance Barrens include hiking and camping.
