Big Bend in Arrowhead Park

It took two hours by ParkBus to reach Arrowhead Provincial Park from Downtown Toronto. After a five hundred meters hike we entered Big Bend lookout platform to enjoy the view. The unique natural hairpin bend of the river creates an illusion of the water flow going upstream. Make sure you can see it for yourself when visiting.

My friend was very excited to finally be able to stretch legs and breath in a lot of fresh air!

Here is the newly opened visitors centre where you will relax, dry up and refresh after the time in the forest if you ski, skate or just walk around…

In Toronto we all got used to see Zamboni –  now here is Olympia. It is worth to mention that it is build in Elmira (near Waterloo, Ontario). They also developed the fully electric models that are sold to many countries in Europe. Olympia is preparing an 1.3 km long Ice Skating trail in the woods. I really want to go skate there! Imagine seeing so much on your way and take unlimited pictures for friends and family!

If you love skiing – there are several trails awaiting! Don’t have equipment – rent it out! The rent room is equipped with boots drying system to eliminate any bad smell or bacteria. Even more, all skis come waxed according to the weather.
