Water Sports in Peterborough & the Kawarthas

Water you waiting for?

When a place is known as the Land of Shining Waters, you know you’re in the right place if you’re drawn to the therapeutic presence of lakes and rivers. There are more than 150 of them for you to enjoy. We tend to forget that the real stars aren’t on television. They’re in the sky, never more beautiful than when reflected in the quiet waters of The Kawarthas.

National Geographic’s book “Journey’s of a Lifetime” calls the Trent-Severn Waterway one of the the top 10 waterway trips in the world.
