Strolling through the cobblestone streets of Blue Mountain Village, packed with shops, restaurants, bars and patios. Then retreating to a haven of wellness and comfort at the Westin Trillium House.

Summary

Ontario is a medley of spirited cities and intensely dramatic natural landscapes - and there are few better times to experience it than in the autumn. Absorb the Gothic grandeur of Ottawa and the diversity of Toronto, before escaping the cities and taking a deep breath of crisp, fresh air in the countryside. Delight in forests full of glowing red maples, see Niagara Falls framed by golden trees, sip cranberry wine in Muskoka, and cruise through the beautiful Thousand Islands archipelago.
