Things to Do
The Blue Mountains area is a hub of natural wonders and as a result offers endless outdoor activities. From ziplining, caving, climbing, hiking, and cycling to snow-related activities, it has it all.
The star of the area is definitely the Blue Mountain Resort. The largest and among the most popular ski resorts in Ontario, it welcomes over a million visitors each year (with good reason). Besides offering the obvious snow-related activities, the resort also has an aquatic center, a mountain coaster, an open-air gondola, and the delightful Blue Mountain Village.
Cutting through the center of the town is the great Georgian Trail that runs 34 kilometers along the striking southern shore of Georgian Bay between Collingwood and Meaford, ideal for walkers, joggers, cyclists, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers alike.
During the warmer no-snow climate, the natural beauty of the Scenic Caves will leave you amazed. A variety of trails with different difficulty levels make it a welcoming attraction for everyone, and its bridge, lookouts, and children’s adventure playground also make it family-friendly. You’ll also enjoy summers soaking up sun at the several beaches in the area, including Northwinds Beach – an absolute must.
If you’re in the mood for less sporty adventures and in need of relaxation, the peaceful Scandinave Spa is close by in a 25-acre natural forest of birch, maple, and pine trees ready to give you an unparalleled pampering experience at the heart of nature.
