Paddling and painting outdoors


The best way to learn how to paint is in plein air, amidst all the natural beauty and wonder of the great outdoors. The Land Canadian Adventures Inc. in Peterborough offers a unique experience that lets participants paddle the Otonabee River following the same path once taken by the Group of Seven. For $175, you and your boyfriend will ride a 36-foot voyager canoe and learn the basics of plein air painting.

Over 80 kilometres of hiking trails are available here, including the Top of the Giant Trail, which takes you to a gorgeous peak overlooking the lake.
