Day Trips from Niagara: Long Point Eco-Adventures

Long Point is located about an hour and half away from Niagara Falls, and is situated in the Norfolk County of Southern Ontario.  There are tons of outdoor activities to participate in in Norfolk County, and among them is taking a zip line canopy tour at Long Point Eco-Adventures (map).

This canopy tour features a 2 1/2 hour guided zip line tour, which lets participants glide across 8 zip lines, teeter across 2 suspension bridges, take in the view from 14 platforms and brave a 40 foot rappel. As participants zip from tree top to tree top,  knowledgeable guides will be right there to point out everything you could possibly want to know about the area through which you are soaring.

The only restrictions are that participants must weigh more than 70 pounds and less than 250 pounds, and must be 8 years or older. In fact, the oldest participant that has ziplined at Long Point Eco-Adventures was 84 years old! People with certain medical conditions are not allowed to go on the tour.

I hightly recommend this tour to anybody who is in the area and is not afraid of heights. The view is great and the whole tour is a ton of fun. The only scary part is the 40 foot rappel at the end, but that may have been so scary because it was the first time I’ve ever rappeled. I would definitely go back again though.

If heights aren’t your thing, Long Point Eco-Adventures has tons of other activities to keep you busy such as canoeing, kayaking and hiking.

After you are finished with a day of outdoor adventures, you can head to nearby Turkey Point (map)¬†or Port Dover (map)¬†for some dinner, as well as to experience a little bit of small town Ontario coastal living. These small towns are filled with tiny shops and restaurants, many of them right on the the shores of Lake Erie. It’s the perfect place to watch the sun go down after an action packed day.
