Welcome to Algonquin Highlands

Located on the western side of the Haliburton Highlands, life here provides a wide variety of year-round activities and events as well as an engaging and relaxed lifestyle. Pristine lakes offer fishing, boating, swimming and sparkling sunsets. Our trails, complete with maps and guidebooks, provide endless beautiful vistas, waterfalls, canoeing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, cycling and snowmobiling. Arts and heritage are alive and well with museums, galleries and quaint small town shopping. Algonquin Park is nearby, as are dozens of resorts, rental cottages and B&Bs.
