Orillia


Make plan ahead, book ahead your mantra for travel this winter as COVID-19 may affect the operating hours of local businesses and how they are operating.   
 
Beautiful winter has never looked better! Indoors or out, Orillia is simply chock full of winter adventures, activities and fun stuff to do.  With an eclectic downtown of shops, restaurants and an arts district, it’s the ideal winter getaway.  Close to two ski resorts – Horseshoe and Mount St. Louis Moonstone – there’s awesome downhill for all skills and ages.  Throw in snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and fat biking at Hardwood Ski and Bike and Horseshoe and it adds up to a pretty exciting winter.

If a sled is your favourite mode of winter transportation, there are 300 kilometres of groomed and well-signed snowmobile trails to follow through forests, rolling hills, rail lines and quaint communities. (Note that an OFSC permit is required to use the trails). Ice fish huts start popping up as the lakes freeze over in January, making this an ice fishing hotspot. Always check ice and weather conditions before heading out on the lake.

For culture and live entertainment, Orillia is pretty hard to beat.  Plan a visit to the Orillia Museum of Art and History (OMAH) and take in a show at the Orillia Opera House or Casino Rama.
 
Looking for a unique place to extend your visit? Try “Ontario’s All-Inclusive Resort”, Fern Resort with special winter package offers and mid-week stays. The resort has an on-site skating trail, ice fishing, spa services, dogsledding, snowshoeing and many more activities.  
 
Current provincial COVID-19 protocols are in place where applicable across the region.
