Adventure tourists come to an area to take part in a particular event, activity, or experience.

“Back Country Tours’ ‘You Drive Adventures’ was created to promote tourism in the beautiful region of Haliburton and Muskoka by encouraging people to head out of the city and explore all the natural attractions that Ontario has to offer on an all terrain vehicle,” states Dudley Hookong, Owner of Back Country Tours, Inc.

“Haliburton’s rugged terrain and scenic natural wilderness combine to make the region an ideal location for our guided ATV and Hummer trail adventures, ATV rentals, and even our winter snowmobile tours for winter adventurers. Many of our clients have told us that they will be returning again to the Haliburton area because they have had such an amazing adventure with us. Businesses like ours definitely help the economy of the area by bringing in tourists that may not have otherwise come. Our clients have come from across Canada, and from all over the world, to experience an outdoor adventure in Ontario’s Canadian Shield,” adds Dudley.

Long regarded as an unspoiled and beautiful wilderness area and a sportsman’s rugged playground paradise, the Haliburton Highlands is slowly gaining prominence as a true adventure tourism destination resort area with world-class attractions and tourist-based activities. Haliburton is home to the Haliburton Forest & Wildlife Reserve with its popular tourist attractions such as the Wolf Centre and Walk in the Clouds canopy tour as well as the world-renowned Algonquin Provincial Park with its multitude of tourist-based attractions. The Haliburton Highlands has over 1,700 kilometres of outstanding ATV trails that extend into the Muskoka, Kawartha, and Madawaska regions as well as extensive snowmobile and Nordic ski trails.
