ESCAPE the Daily Grind with Kawartha Chamber of Commerce & Tourism
In only 90 minutes from Toronto you can truly get away from it all. Visit us and embrace the true Canadian cottage experience. Home to the eastern Kawartha Lakes there is ample opportunity to try your hand at canoeing, waterskiing, kayaking, wakeboarding and year ‘round fishing; not to mention a jam-packed menu of festivals and events.
For locals, be sure to get acquainted with the attractions that have for decades been luring visitors from across the country and around the world.
Encounter “The Land Between” – a unique ecotone smack dab between the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands. Explore this transition area containing elements from the ecosystems it borders, but also having features that are entirely unique. Exposed granite and limestone stepping stones; small, connected lakes and wetlands; open ridges and cool shaded forests; all await your discovery.
At One with Nature
We’re a diversity hotspot! Wide-ranging habitat attracts a broader variation of species. Ontario’s only lizard, the Five-lined Skink lives here. Naturalist and birder, Drew Monkman notes that, “Two worlds collide here and birding is better because of it.” With no less than ten provincial parks and conservation areas there’s no shortage of nature’s unspoiled gifts.
Not to be Missed Attractions
Centrally located between Toronto and Ottawa, true Kawartha spirit is found in this “land of shining waters.” There’s a reason so many talented people live in this area; it’s simply inspiring. Unspoiled lakes offer adventure, wonderment or relaxation. Natural beauty aside, you can explore a broad range of attractions on offer at any time. Whether it’s culture or culinary, necessities or luxuries, shops or festivals; you choose.
