EXPLORE

Take in the fresh air and natural beauty of Cobourg’s outdoor playground. Blue sky, sandy beach, wooded trails and the sweet scents of gardens in bloom…

RIDE THE WAVES

NMake the most of the white sand and lapping water on this gorgeous stretch of Lake Ontario shoreline. Paddle boards, kayaks and canoes are available for rent at Green Canoe Outfitters at 90 King St. W., 289-252-2090. And do some yoga! Try a class on the water with yoga instructor and life coach Melanie Woolsey, and her team at Om Sup, 416-399-1674. They’ll challenge your core strength with sun salutations on a stand-up paddle board.

“There’s something so intuitive and cleansing about doing yoga on the water,” Melanie says. “Don’t be afraid to fall in. You’ll get wet, that’s part of the fun!” Beginners welcome. Headstands are entirely possible.

HIT THE TRAILS

Biking, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, snowshoeing… Four-season calorie expenditure awaits in nearby Northumberland and Ganaraska forests. (Locals love to ATV and snowmobile here, too!) You can rent bikes in July and August at the tourism kiosk at the beach.

GO OUT ON A LIMB

Play out your own Legend of Tarzan with Treetop Trekking Ganaraska, 855-280-0900, at the Ganaraska Forest Centre. You’ll fly across zip lines and climb on bridges, nets and swings high in the trees. Night treks are available where your headlamp shows the way.
