Paddling in Ontario's Highlands

The OHTO is offering members an opportunity to list vacation packages online, for free, on the upcoming Ontario’s Highlands tourism website at ontarioshighlands.ca.

What is a Vacation Package?
A vacation package is an easy way for your visitors to purchase their travel, taking the headache out of planning a trip. Packages typically include a combination of accommodations, activities, or services that are sold together to offer convenience and/or value to visitors. Many vacations are booked online this way, whether it’s a weekend romantic getaway in Niagara (hotel + wine tour + dinner) or a week at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean (flight + hotel + meals).
