Win the ultimate hiking holiday in Ontario and £1,000 worth of Berghaus kit
The great outdoors doesn’t come much greater than in Canada, home to some of the world’s most glorious back-country. The province of Ontario alone – where you’ll find capital Ottawa and buzzing Toronto – is almost the size of Italy, Germany and France combined, a patchwork of forests, lakes and thunderous waterfalls.
For walkers, the sheer array of options puts a spring in the step. Ontario has no less than 330 parks, from easy-access woodlands to remote coastal wildernesses. For an urban thrill, head to Toronto’s lofty CN Tower, which recently opened an ‘edge walk’ for those with a head for heights. A short drive away, Algonquin Provincial Park has an array of trails where you can lose yourself for days and spot moose and other wildlife. But that’s just scratching the surface – here’s our pick of the best short hikes in a truly walker-friendly province.
Ontario Tourism UK had teamed up with Air Canada and the leading outdoor clothing
brand Berghaus. This is your opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime to Ontario and we are also throwing in £1000 worth of Berghaus kit!
The winner and their chosen travel companion will fly with Air Canada to Toronto to begin their adventure across the province, fully kitted out in Berghaus gear.
This 13 night multi-stopover holiday of a lifetime combines the buzz of Toronto and the charm of Canada’s capital, Ottawa, with the very best of Ontario’s nature and great outdoors to include stopovers in Niagara Falls, Blue Mountain, Tobermory, Killarney and Algonquin Provincial Park. You’ll stay in top-class resorts, lodges and hotels and experience the magic of the great Canadian outdoors taking part in hiking, kayaking and other outdoor activities*. Top off the trip with a heli-ride over Niagara Falls!
