Discover what makes Ontario so special. From its natural beauty to its depth of culture, Ontario offers an extraordinary array of experiences for the curious traveller. You can embrace nature out in Ontario’s extraordinary wild areas, taking in some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Canada. And if you love adventure but don’t want to compromise on comfort and luxury, you can go glamping at Wawaitin Falls or enjoy a log cabin stay in Algonquin Park. Explore the waterways with a boating holiday on the Rideau Canal or ride the streets and roads on a biking trip in and around the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau.
With so much to see, and so many ways to explore Ontario, Landsby decided to create a resource to help people find the best Ontario Experience for them.

And please reach out if you have any questions for the Landsby team.
Algonquin Provincial Park is the oldest of its kind in Canada. At 7,653 km2, Algonquin Park is more than big enough to accommodate the large numbers of nearby Ottawans and Torontonians that leave their cities in search of natural beauty and adventure. Some people camp here, while others stay nearby and drive in each day on nature hikes. However, we feel the best option is to stay in a log cabin in Algonquin Park. This authentic Landsby experience is more than just a tranquil getaway in the forest; it’s a complete experience, with hikes, guided canoeing excursions, delicious food, and access to an expert wilderness guide. Click on the link above to learn more about this experience.
If you’re looking for a different way to get in touch with nature in Ontario, you might like to consider our glamping adventure in Wawaitin Falls (this is a sample itinerary as everything can be tailored to meet your individual needs). This experience is designed to revitalize your body and soothe your soul by helping you experience the best natural sights and sounds Wawaitin Falls has to offer. Incredible home-cooked local food, pontoon cruising, visits to a wildlife park with your personal wilderness guide, kayak tours, and so much more. Eco-tourism doesn’t get much better than this!
If chateaus are more your style than tents and log cabins, then Landsby’s Chateau, Chocolate, Coffee and Cheese Experience might be your dream Ontario trip. This stay in Chateau La Motte Guest House is as luxurious as it gets while also filling your days with immersive local activities, such as chocolate tastings, cheese-making tours, eco farm tours, and beer tours — to name only a few of the incredible optional experiences in Ontario’s Oxford Country. You simply tell us what you’re interested in and Landsby’s travel consultants will put together your perfect trip.
Take four days to cycle around the beautiful twin cities of Ottawa and Gatineau, riding throughout the twin cities’ stunning 600km connected cycling network. Freewheel through two of Ontario’s most beautiful cities, taking in the sights and sounds of both cities, the Rideau Canal, visiting various world-class museums along the way. This is a soft-biking adventure combined with some of the most immersive and rich cultural experiences in Ontario. If you love the idea of enjoying the freedom of the capital region’s bicycle lane network while taking part in various cultural experiences and activities, take a closer look at our Ottawa Soft Biking Guided Adventure.
While all of our experiences offer plenty of activities, our Ottawa Valley Signature Cycling Experience takes this to the next level, with five incredible days of cycling, using the Whitewater Inn in the village of Beachburg as your base. Cycle the hidden backroads of the Ottawa Valley with your guide, taking part in wine and beer tastings along the way. A ⅗ difficulty rating means that a proficient level of fitness is required for this experience, but you certainly don’t need to be ready for the Tour de France. If you’re looking for an active adventure and hope to see as much of the Ottawa Valley as possible over several days, then this signature experience might be the perfect trip for you! If you’re looking for something a little more gentle and closer to the city, you may prefer our next experience.
The last adventure we’d like to share with you on this guide is our Quintessential Canada Experience. If you value wilderness and nature above everything else, then this may be the trip for you. Adventure into the heart of Northern Ontario’s wilderness, enjoying a floatplane tour of the area’s hundreds of lakes and epic boreal forests. You will stay in the cozy lakefront cabin Miminiska Lodge. This is a completely customized experience, so you can tell us exactly what you’re looking for, but here are a few of the incredible activities on offer:
