Where is Kawarthas and Northumberland?

Just over an hour’s drive east of Toronto, Northumberland County borders Lake Ontario and extends up to Rice Lake. North of Rice Lake is the district of Kawartha Lakes, a web of over 250 lakes, rivers and waterways, part of the historic Trent-Severn Waterway.

Water plays a key role in shaping the character and spirit of this region, and cities, towns and villages here have so much to offer. Come enjoy these famed water routes’ inviting accommodations, Indigenous heritage, unique attractions and the best local treats, eats and drinks. There’s even a museum dedicated to the story of the canoe — how much more Canadiana can we get?
