Book Canopy Tour
Walk Along the Longest Canopy Walkway in the World
Enjoy breathtaking views on this 3.5 to 4 hour Canopy Tour. Your guide will take you on an adventure in 4 parts:
1. A scenic drive through the private forest (masks required for this portion. Optional: Drive your own vehicle and follow our staff to Pelaw Lake.)
2. Paddle a canoe across a wilderness lake
3. A guided walk along the Pelaw River Rapids
4. The Canopy Tour itself, among the treetops. At 10-20 metres above the ground, walk through the treetops and see beautiful views of Haliburton Forest from above. At over half a kilometre long (the longest canopy boardwalk of its kind in the world), you’ll be sure to see more spectacular views.
***Children must be a minimum age of 10 in order to participate in the Canopy Tour.
Guests should be able to walk at a relaxed pace under their own power for a minimum of 3 hours as well as being capable of embarking and disembarking a large voyageur style canoe from a dock.
Pregnant women, by discretion. Your harness must fit securely for your safety as well as the baby's.
Haliburton Forest provides all guests with the necessary harness and carabiner clips (maximum waist size = 48").
Tours run rain or shine, please dress for the weather and wear close toed footwear (running shoes, hiking boots preferred). Please do not wear short shorts, skirts or dresses as you will be wearing a lap harness that pulls your clothing up. Feel free to bring a camera so you can take pictures along the way.
9:00 am tour - please arrive 15-20 minutes before your tour.
1:30 pm tour - we recommend arriving an hour to two hours before to grab lunch at The Cookhouse Restaurant or visit the Wolf Centre (passes sold separately).
Although we accept single guest bookings, tours will only run with a minimum of 2 guests. It is however very rare that we have to cancel a tour due to low numbers - the right number of people nearly always show up!
Insider tip! Many Canopy Tour guests make a day of it and enjoy a meal at The Cookhouse Restaurant, take in a Wolf Howl or even hiking a trail. Day use is complimentary for guests of the Canopy Tour.
