Northumberland County, situated on the south shore of Rice Lake, is surrounded by waterways on all sides of the region. The Ganaraska River to the west flows into Port Hope, Lake Ontario lies at the county’s southern boundary, and to the east is the Trent-Severn Waterway with its entryway at Trenton.
To experience outdoor adventure is the number one reason tourists visit the area as they enjoy over 25 trails (some provincially and nationally renowned), numerous ideal fishing areas, challenging on-road signed cycling loops, and golf courses all found within the Outdoor Adventure Map.
If it’s specialty outlet shopping, grand sweeping views, historical sites and eateries that entice you a little more, specially-themed driving routes have been plotted to guide you through picturesque towns and villages. If you want to build in a little bit of competition as you’re rolling along, visit www.northumberlandtourism.com/roadrallies where a list of questions answered properly, and the fastest to the finish can garner some bragging rights!
Northumberland boasts some gigantic and best-in-class attractions from The Big Apple with market shops, a restaurant and a chance to walk inside the big apple to the top of the structure, to the internationally-renowned Ste. Anne’s Spa snuggled deep in the rolling hills overlooking Lake Ontario. Awarded national distinction is Betty’s Pies and Tarts so you can take home a taste of the area. The opportunity to stay in your own off-grid eco cabin on Grasshopper Island at Rice Lake affords an experience like no other such as taking a shower heated by solar energy or gathering fresh eggs from the nest for your breakfast.
