Explore Haliburton

You will find tiny Haliburton tucked into a series of highland hills and will be glad you made time to find it. 

Inhabited by a richly talented group of artisans, the town thrums with creativity. The local campus of Fleming College offers courses in glassblowing, painting and drawing, jewelry design, ceramics and more, bringing more creative people to study while they vacation. A Creative Business Incubator also adds to the mix.

With more than 30 lakes in Haliburton County, the area thrives on tourism. The nearby Haliburton Scout Camp is also the largest of its kind in Canada, generating a lifetime of memories for thousands of campers each summer.

For a great outdoor adventure, explore the Haliburton Sculpture Forest between the Fleming College campus and Head Lake. You will find more than 30 large sculptures, including a metal moose, nestled into the trails of Glebe Park. This family outing is a kid-friendly way to get outside and encourage a love of the arts.

The Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve is a must-see destination for its wolf sanctuary and tree canopy walk. The trails around the facility are also worth a visit.

Drive or hike up the hill to Haliburton Skyline Park to see the town and all the beauty that surrounds it. The quiet forested area is a wonderful reprieve from busy days. The view is spectacular, particularly in the autumn when the leaves change to rich hues of red and gold.

The town’s 21 restaurants give you lots of choices for price and menu type while you dine. You can pair your meal with a beer from Haliburton Highland Brewing microbrewery to add more local flavour.
