Luxury Haliburton — Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel

As one of Canada’s most popular cottage country destinations, the county of Haliburton Ontario – often referred to simply as the Haliburton Highlands – has become one the top places to live, work, and play in the country. Stretching from the edges of Muskoka to the west, Kawartha Lakes to the south, and Algonquin Provincial Park to the north – and encompassing the picturesque communities of Haliburton, Minden, and Carnarvon – there’s no end of fun things to do for residents, cottagers, and visitors alike.

With Haliburton weather ranging from warm summers to snow-filled winters, this year-round playground attracts everything from snowmobilers travelling Ontario’s extensive trails to boaters and fishers drawn here by the region’s endless network of lakes and waterways. Outdoor enthusiasts also enjoy exploring the well-groomed hiking trails of the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Preserve, which in winter is a paradise for snowmobiling and dogsledding.
