A walk in the clouds is more than a guided tour: It is an experience that you will not soon forget.

Family time on Canopy Walk platformFrom the moment you arrive your professional guides will lead you through a unique and very dynamic tour. From river basin to tree top, the tour takes in all the splendour that nature has to offer.

The four hour round trip tour consists of:

  • A guided van ride through the private lands of Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve Ltd., passing through forests and along lakes and streams.
  • A 1/2 kilometer walk along the scenic Pelaw River.
  • A short, guided, voyageur-canoe ride across a wilderness lake to the final destination.
  • The actual canopy boardwalk:
    The canopy boardwalk is the ultimate highlight of this outing. Over half a kilometer long - and as such the longest of its kind in the world - the canopy boardwalk winds through the treetops some 10-20 meters above the forest floor. A platform suspended from the treetops above, becomes the gathering place where you can enjoy a leisurely snack while your guide elaborates on the forest environment surrounding you. A spectacular view across the lakes and forests becomes a fitting closure to your tree top tour.
