Book Canopy Tour
Due to Provincial orders due to Covid-19 and to regular seasonal maintenance the Canopy Tour is closed to the public until further notice. We anticipate our first tours of the season to run starting August 1, 2020 but hoping for earlier, so keep watching our Facebook and Instagram pages!
Effective March 17, 2020.
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
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.
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.
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.
Included with the Canopy Tour you receive a light snack and a beverage mid-tour as well as a complimentary pass to the Wolf Centre and day use to Haliburton Forest.
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 visit the Wolf Centre.
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!
