Winter

  • Winter hike in the woods or rent snowshoes from a local outfitter/club and bring a thermos of hot chocolate to share
  • Dinner and Skating on Rice Lake at Elmhirst’s Resort, or have a full weekend get-a-way at Elmhirst’s resort. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage, relax at the spa, warm up in a steaming hot tub, and enjoy an incredible culinary experience
  • Toboggan down Armour Hill
  • Create your own custom box of delectable chocolates from the handmade selection at The Chocolate Rabbit or one of our other excellent chocolate shops
  • When the ice freezes the water, skate along the Trent Canal at the base of the Peterborough Lift Lock
  • Spend a winter’s day skiing on the groomed trails in the wilderness at Kawartha Nordic Ski Club. Warm-up afterwards by the wood stoves in their cozy chalet
  • Cheer on the Peterborough Pete’s hockey team at the Peterborough Memorial Centre. Go Pete’s Go!
  • Spend a romantic weekend in cottage country. While staying in a lakeside cottage at Pine Vista Resort, snuggle up to a roaring fire and embrace the breathtaking views of winter on Stoney Lake.

 

Spring

  • Take part in Buckhorn Maplefest at McLean Berry Farm featuring a pancake breakfast, live music, maple syrup demonstrations, sugar bushwalking tours and hayrides
  • When the nice weather finally arrives spend a couple’s weekend at Six Foot Bay Resort! Relax on the beach, play a round of golf and have a BBQ
  • Visit the Spring Craft Show at the Buckhorn Community Centre during the Victoria Day long weekend, where you will find jewellery, designer clothing, soaps, woven goods, handmade furniture, home accessories and local candy, honey, jams and jellies
  • Plan a spring drive and pick up some beautiful blooms for your special someone using the Peterborough & Area Garden Route
