A satisfying fall staycation awaits in South Georgian Bay in and around Blue Mountain Village.
Between locally brewed craft beers and ciders, abundant beaches and sweet and savoury treats galore, there is plenty to see, do (and eat) in South Georgian Bay. But if you’re also looking for some outdoor adventure, Blue Mountain Village and Scenic Caves Adventures are a great place to start.
At 420 feet long, the suspension footbridge at Scenic Cave Adventures is southern Ontario’s longest and provides spectacular 360-degree views of Georgian Bay and beyond. Being suspended a whopping 82 feet above the forest floor leaves you feeling as if you’re floating among the trees.
Caves and caverns
Step back in time via self-guided trails that weave throughout 17 unique geological features, naturally carved millions of years ago by glacial ice and once home to the Petun First Nations people.
The labyrinth of caves and caverns 70 feet below the surface is well worth exploring for panoramic vistas of Georgian Bay along limestone cliff edges.
Hiking, mini golf and more
Sitting atop the Niagara Escarpment, the hiking centre at Scenic Caves Adventures has 15 kilometres of trails that wind through 370 acres of natural beauty. Easy, moderate and advanced trails are marked by signs designating degree of difficulty and distance. So there should be an option for everyone. End your active day with a relaxing round of mini golf. The course here is suitable for all ages and set amidst a scenic backdrop.
Following your visit to Scenic Caves Adventures, if you’re in the mood for even more outdoor fun, there is plenty of choice within Blue Mountain Village.
The Explore All Day Pass is a great option. It includes unlimited day access to 30 kilometres of hiking trails, 12 cross country bike trails and the Open-Air Gondola. Or opt for the Play All Day Pass. That has unlimited day access to select Blue Mountain attractions including Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, Wind Rider Triple Zips and much more.
And don’t miss the Timber Challenge High Ropes, which will have you climbing ladders, crossing bridges and cruising along zip lines for an exciting adrenalin rush. The Woodlot Low Ropes are a good option for anyone looking for a more mild climbing adventure.
Once you’re ready to unwind, there are plenty of lodging options in and around Blue Mountain Village, along with a spa and a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes.
