What we're about

This group is for all solo travellers living or visiting Toronto who want to meet new friends and travel around Ontario. We are organizing short trips from Toronto and monthly Meetups at Toronto's restaurants and bars. Don't be shy and join one of our weekend trips if you don't know anyone in the group we can guarantee you that after the trip you will get at least one new friend to hang out with in Toronto (well at least we will try :) We organize one day trips and over night tours such as dog sledding, skiing, whale watching, moose watching, rafting, etc. Most of our tours are active and outdoor but once in a while we organize hotel stay, foodie, wine tasting or craft beer tours. We prefer to travel in small groups!

We will also post deals for international tours and all inclusive packages. These tours are not guided but it will give you a chance to find somebody who would like to join you for a vacation trip if you don't have anyone to go with or you just want to meet new people. You can discuss and post comments on Meetup Event.

This group is operated by Travelling Chicken and Centre Holidays travel agencies.

Muskoka Hiking

The Beer Store

CA$129.00

Join us on a day tour to Muskoka. Muskoka’s trail network covers some 4000 sq kms of rugged terrain. Vast forests of spruce, pine, poplar, tamarack, balsam and birch are easily accessible by some of Ontario’s best hiking trail systems. Many trails lead to panoramic lookout points where sightseers and photographers can enjoy stunning scenic vistas.

We will start our day at Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail. Huckleberry Rock has been well known locally for over 100 years as a scenic lookout. These rocks are some of the oldest rock in the world, well over a billion years old!

Our next stop will be at Hardy Lake Provincial Park. The park has a rich community of Atlantic coastal plain species. These species are here because at one time, much of present day Ontario was submerged beneath numerous glacial and post-glacial lakes. When the ancient Lake Algonquin receded, it left a remnant community of Atlantic Ocean shoreline plants behind. The park also contains an inland section of displaced Georgian Bay shoreline.
