Days Spent Outdoors... it's in our Nature

Lennox and Addington

The County of Lennox & Addington is a hotspot for birding enthusiasts in winter, particularly on its islands, such as Amherst Island which harbours owls. Many owl species can be found on the island in winter, even Snowy Owls who can often be seen on fence posts or in trees on west end of the island – passengers of the ferry have even spotted them sitting on the ice!

Frontenac County

The pure white Snowy Owl is also a winter favourite on Wolfe Island, with the island’s western portion home to hawks, as well. In fact, Wolfe Island is recognized as one of Canada’s Important Bird Areas by IBA Canada. Be sure to bring the camera and prepare for a rush of excitement when you spot a coveted feathered friend!

Ice Fishing in Land O’ Lakes

Anglers flock to the Land O’ Lakes each year to take in the world-class bass, walleye, pike, and crappie fishing that the 5,000 lakes in this region have to offer. Changing seasons and cooler temperatures, don’t slow them down; in fact, some of the world’s greatest ice fishing can be found here. There is superb fishing on these lakes and plenty of nearby accommodations to house visiting anglers.

Majestic Beauty, Endless Trails

The snowmobile trails seem to be everywhere and with all the impressive woods and snow-covered lakes and rivers; one can only imagine the beauty just beyond the highway. These snow adorned trails make for some pretty fantastic sledding in the Land O’ Lakes.

If you don’t have your own snowmobile rentals are available at Springwood Cottages ( )

The Great North

Go north and capture the beauty of a true Canadian winter. The Land O’ Lakes is a great place to experience the opulence of the season. As snow blankets the landscape, replacing the scenery with an alternatively beautiful appearance, visitors enjoy an escape from a bustling city life. The trails are the perfect place to snowmobile, snowshoe or cross-country ski. Fishing huts appear on the abundance of frozen lakes and provide a wonderful place for anglers to drop a line. During the evening the stars feel larger and closer and seem to shine that much brighter as they reflect off the glistening snow. For a stunningly unique winter experience, grab your camera and head to the Land O’ Lakes.
