Things To Do

Collingwood Area

The vibrant and distinguished town of Collingwood lies approximately 50 km northwest of Barrie. Known for its outdoor extreme sports and adventures, Collingwood sits beneath the towering Blue Mountains, part of the Niagara Escarpment: an area recognized by UNESCO for its one of a kind beauty.

Consider packing a picnic and hiking or cycling along some of the best nature trails Collingwood has to offer. Visit Scenic Caves Nature Adventure & Eco Adventure Tours. Couples can enjoy a romantic getaway to the Scandinave Spa and melt into a heavenly state of relaxation. Stop off at the world renowned Blue Mountain Resort, just up the hill from Collingwood, and enjoy a bite to eat at one of many mouth-watering restaurants in the Village of Blue Mountain.

In the winter, start your adventures at the Blue Mountain Resort ski hill. Experience a day of skiing or snowboarding down the pristine groomed runs or abandon your fears and step off the beaten path: try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing through the forest.

Trail maps are available at the Georgian Triangle Tourist Association.
