We’re only a couple of weeks away from the highly-anticipated ice fishing season here in the Haliburton Highlands. Families from Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Kitchener, and far beyond have already started planning wintertime adventures to Sandy Lane Resort, one of the premier Ontario resorts. Our peaceful four-season resort is steps away from superb snowmobiling, ice skating, skiing, snowshoeing, and, of course, ice fishing on tranquil Halls Lake.
Sandy Lane Resort earned its name because of Halls Lake’s beautiful shorelines, but locals and tourists alike have quickly packed away their swimsuits for snow pants. Ontarians embrace the snow and cold by venturing into the breathtaking Haliburton Highlands wilderness every winter. There are dozens of winter activities in Ontario that every visitor should try this winter. While Haliburton is known for its snowmobile trails, ski resorts, and ice fishing, there are several unique (and somewhat obscure) activities worth attempting.
