Browse the experiences we offer in South Eastern Ontario to see just how much this region has to offer visitors. The landscapes of South Eastern Ontario are incredible year round but turn into a snowy wonderland come winter: peaceful, snow-covered forest trails; white islands dotting an icy St. Lawrence; and historic towns and villages lit up to illuminate the snow. This is Ontario winter at its best.
You can walk along one of the beautiful beaches in winter – just don’t go for a dip in the water, or birdwatch along one of the many kilometres of trails. The region’s vast network of lakes and rivers offers plenty of opportunities for ice fishing. And if you’re after more heart-pumping adventure, South Eastern Ontario has got you covered, with skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, snowmobiling and more.

Sometimes, the main aspect of winter travel that puts people off is transportation. Driving on winter roads can be daunting, so many people simply avoid all but necessary journeys. This is where South Eastern Ontario really shines, with excellent and efficient train service right across the region during the winter months.
South Eastern Ontario’s trains cut a peaceful path through the tranquil, snow-sprinkled countryside, giving you a feel for the region that you simply can’t access while driving on the highway!
