Make a holiday rental home or property in Ontario, Canada your home away from home

Ontario is a stunning land of contrasts, from the bustling city of Toronto to the peaceful, still, nature rich lakes of the Ontario countryside. Words can hardly describe the beauty of Ontario, Canada, where ancient forests glide down to the edge of vast, still lakes or the banks of gushing rivers. Holidays to Ontario are always and adventure, but whether you have travelled to an Ontario holiday rental to enjoy the magnificent cuisine, awe-inspiring landscapes, play golf or go kayaking in Ontario’s stunning lake country, you will be counting down the days until you can return to your Ontario holiday home as soon as you leave.

Things to do in Ontario, Canada

There is simply too much to see and do in Ontario to fit into a single Ontario guide. The vast, diverse landscapes of Ontario offer endless outdoor activities, from climbing and walking in the rugged canyon landscapes to sailing, fishing and kayaking in Ontario’s many miles of gently flowing rivers, still lakes and gushing rapids. This is a land where moose, caribou and bears still roam free, and can regularly be seen, especially if you have strapped on your hiking boots and taken one of the many walking trails that adorn the countryside, or have taken to the water, silently paddling along the river. Kayaking in Ontario is one of the finest ways to see the extraordinary wildlife that calls Ontario home, as you can travel almost silently. Nothing could possibly be more relaxing either, especially if you have your fishing rod close to hand.

During the winter months, Ontario is blanketed by snow, turning the whole province into a winter wonderland. There are more than 46,000km of interconnected snowmobile trails to explore, whether on a snowmobile, a dog sled or on cross country skis. Ice fishing is a particularly special way to find your supper from an Ontario log cabin in the wilderness, and you would be hard pushed to find somewhere more peaceful to escape too.

Places to visit on holiday in Ontario, Canada

Toronto is the largest city in Canada, attracting millions of visitors a year due to its wonderfully friendly atmosphere, fantastic shopping, magnificent golf courses and huge number of attractions. The huge CN Tower is just one of the many Toronto attractions worth exploring, with the Toronto Zoo, St Lawrence Market, Royal Ontario Museum and the Casa Loma all rating highly.

Muskoka is a magnificent region of Ontario, Canada, just two hours north of Toronto and blissfully natural. The pristine mountain lakes, majestic forests and charming towns of Muskoka make it an outdoor activity haven, covered in natural parks, golf courses and spa centres. Fishing is especially popular in this part of Ontario, and there can be nothing more relaxing than gently paddling a canoe through the astonishing landscapes of Muskoka, viewing wildlife at almost every turn.

Niagara Falls need little introduction. The enormous waterfalls mark the boundary of Ontario, Canada and New York in America, and are so impressive that they really must be seen in person at least once during your lifetime.

Weather in Ontario, Canada

Summers in Ontario tend to be hot and humid, with average temperatures in July and August reaching around 27°C, perfect for kayaking in Ontario, swimming in the lakes, rivers and sea, or simply taking it easy in the Ontario countryside. Winters can be very harsh, with temperatures averaging -2°C in January most years, but this simply adds to the beauty of Ontario’s winter wonderland.

Travel to Ontario, Canada

Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) makes reaching a self catering Ontario holiday rental very easy, as it receives direct flights from the UK, leaving from British airports including Heathrow (LHR), Cardiff (CWL), Belfast (BFS), Manchester (MAN) and Birmingham (BHX). If you are staying in Ontario accommodation in Toronto, a hire car is unnecessary, but if you are heading into the beautiful wilds on Ontario, car hire is easily arranged at Toronto Airport.

The cottage had everything you needed (except that the wardrobe had no hanging facility) It is in a very quiet spot and right on the river with nice walks. House and garden well equipped.
