Protecting your skin while out on the water or taking a hike is a must! Make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and wear a hat.

If you’re looking to get up close and personal with Gananoque and the Thousand Islands, head down to the 1000 Islands Kayaking Company to enjoy the experience of a lifetime!

Looking for an amazing view that encompasses the vast beauty of The 1000 Islands? Visit the 1000 Islands Tower located on Hill Island.

To start our experience, we entered the building and were greeted by warm and welcoming staff. After a quick yet thorough Covid safety brief we headed outside to meet our pilot and get our first view of the helicopter.

Our day started with short walk to the waterfront to confirm our tickets and stand in the social distancing line to board the cruise.

Craft Market, Farmer's Market, and Flea Market.

Looking for a fun out-door activity to do? Check out the Berry Homestead Farm! Not only is the farm family friendly, but they also have many different crops and animals to show. Located at 936 Sheffield Lane in Lyndhurst, they are mostly known for their donkeys.

Murals, boat cruises, parks, and hiking trails.

Balleycanoe & Co., Gananoque Flea Market, and more!

If you live in or plan to visit the Toronto – Ottawa – Montreal corridor this summer then try to fit in a stop to the charming town of Gananoque so you can spend at least a day on a kayaking trip in the 1000 Islands.

You’ve got the ring, you’ve chosen a date, now the tricky part; where to say I Do?

If you are a golfer there is nothing you love more than discovering new golf courses. On a recent trip to Montreal, I decided to stop off at Smuggler’s Glen; part of the Glen House Resort.

I found the ultimate spot to put a smile on your face – a farm where you can snuggle donkeys. Berry Homestead Farm in Lyndhurst is a hidden gem that you need to visit if you love seeing cute animals.
