Meetings & Groups

(Recommended May to November)

Take full advantage of Simcoe County's natural playground by exploring hundreds of kilometres of hiking, walking and cycling trails.  Whether the Group prefers leisurely hiking or extreme biking, Simcoe County has the fun and excitement to satisfy the most adventurous spirit.

The group will begin their adventure as they experience the thrill of the Scenic Caves Nature Adventures located in Collingwoood on the Niagara escarpment.  The Group will venture deep inside the Blue Mountains as they immerse themselves in a great labyrinth of caves and crevices.  The Group will have a spectacular view of 10,000 square kilometres of picturesque Georgian Bay as they approach the highest point of the Niagara escarpment.

After an appetizing lunch in Midland, the Group will visit Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre for an exploration of the sights and sounds of the wetlands.  A guided tour provided by one of many knowledgeable outdoor educators will lead the Group through the wetlands with friendly and informative commentary.  There will be many great opportunities for picture-perfect moments, as there are a variety of birds in the marsh, including the magnificent Trumpeter Swans.

Dinner will be provided by one of Barrie's culturally inspired downtown restaurants.  After dinner, it's off to the races!  An entertaining night awaits the Group at Georgian Downs Limited.  This gaming and entertainment centre offers an exciting night of live harness racing.  After an exhilarating night at the racetrack, the Group will travel back to Barrie where overnight accommodations will be provided by one of Barrie's motor-coach-friendly accommodations.

After a hearty breakfast, the Group will experience a true off-road adventure at Hardwood Ski and Bike, Ontario's premier mountain bike destination.  Bikes and safety equipment will be provided to enjoy the beautiful, rolling trails through hardwood and pine forests.  The Group will also have the chance to climb the outdoor climbing tower.
