Why a girlfriend getaway?
It has been medically proven that the bond between women is critical to their emotional and physical health. And, researchers also link good health with good friends. Sharing adventures with your BFF’s is a great way to strengthen your relationships.
Choose from a variety of activities for women of all ages, physical abilities and interests. Stagettes, bachelorettes, mom & daughter groups, college misses and work-related womenfolk have offered rave reviews over the years.
Here are some of the key activities guaranteed to excite the girls.
“Rock your girl world” by getting some exercise while chatting with the girls and exploring the labyrinth of caves, crevices and caverns. Hike tranquil nature trails. View lookouts at the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment which offer fabulous photo ops. Experience the 420’ suspension bridge offering spectacular 10,000 sq. ft. views of the region. It’s a self-guided tour, so you can plan a couple of hours, or the entire day.
Thunder Bird Twin Zip Adventure
If you’re looking for a gutsy, ‘bucket list’ activity, ride the Thunderbird Twin Zipline. As you leave the 50ft tower of the Thunderbird Nest, you and your girlfriend are soaring over the Escarpment for a half mile, one of the longest zip spans in Ontario. Thunderbird’s new technology allows the rider to control their own speed and even stop and enjoy the views while suspended over the Escarpment. This package also includes access to the Suspension Bridge and Caves. Height/weight restrictions apply.
Eco Tour Adventure
Gather your female expedition team to get ‘up close and personal with nature’. This three-hour guided tour leads you over the suspension bridge to a treetop walk along a web of platform decks spun together by cables and air borne walkways, down two ziplines, into cool caverns and caves. The informative guides tell stories about the history and unique ecology of the Niagara Escarpment. Reservations are required and height/weight restrictions apply.
For a rose-pink glow on the cheeks, ‘girls on the go’ bundle up and head outdoors together for snow adventures. Explore our winter wonderland on 27 km. of cross-country skis or 10 km. of dedicated snowshoe trails. Trails are well marked and graded by level of difficulty. The newest in rental equipment, ski waxing hut and snack bar are located at the main Nordic building. The warm-up hut at the top of the Escarpment is a spectacular destination for taking group photos and thawing out by a roaring woodstove with a hot beverage. Guided night snowshoe hikes and night cross-country skiing are also wildly popular.
