If you are a boater you will be hard pressed to find any area as good as the Kawartha’s. The reasons are simple: dozens of lakes, beautiful scenery, marinas and outfitter stores, restaurants – and the heart of the Trent-Severn Waterway – Canada’s longest chain of locks and canals, connecting the lakes and rivers to the Great Lake system.
The variety of water activities is almost endless. If you want some physical activity you can try watersports such as kayaking, canoeing, wakeboarding, or water skiing followed by a leisurely tube ride. Or catch your supper fishing. Others simply cruise in their boats or enjoy sightseeing from a pontoon boat.
Or, you can rent a houseboat!
You can fish along the way for Bass, Muskie and Pickerel. If you want to cook your fish, you can pair it with local fruits and vegetables from the variety of farmer’s markets. Or if you prefer, you can try the ‘catch of the day’ at one of the many dining options on the shores.
If you want to try house boating but don’t know where to start, no problem. You can choose from one of the House boating Itineraries:
- 3 – 5 Day Journey, a one day trip from Pigeon Lake to Hastings.
- 1 – 2 days from Hastings to Peterborough
- Day Trip from Burleigh Falls to Peterborough
- Day Trip from Bobcaygeon to Burleigh Falls
The following map shows the route from Bobcaygeon to Hastings.
You can start your research by downloading the 2016 Peterborough and The Kawarthas Experience Directory. Over 40 pages of information on:
- Places to stay
- Outdoor recreation
And if that were not enough, there is a special section on “Building Your Bucket List.” The information helps you choose all of the activities you have always wanted to do but have not gotten around to yet! You can choose from detailed itineraries…
- If you are culture and history buff,
- If you love to be entertained,
- If you’re a foodie who also enjoys craft wines, beers and spirits,
