Overview

Prepare to be dazzled, we’re heading off to the Bruce Peninsula! A feast for the senses, “The Bruce” is definitely one of the most stunning locations in all of Ontario. (And we’ve plenty to choose from).

Our 3 day Grotto camping adventure offers experiences that just aren’t available on any of our other tours. Check out shipwrecks on a glass bottom cruise, swim through the underwater tunnel to the “grotto” and explore the caves, canoe and kayak on turquoise waters, hike the famous Bruce Trail and connect with the abundant wildlife in a National Park.

Speed things up with a jet boat ride, bbq, and get those toes aired out on a sandy beach, you’ll find it hard to believe this is all just a few short hours from Toronto.

Itinerary

After a friendly welcome from your Moose guide and a chance to meet your fellow travellers, our bus heads north to The Bruce Peninsula! We’ll stop along the way to explore Greig’s Caves, hike to a lookout point and have a picnic lunch! We arrive at our campground in the afternoon and then spend some time on the water, before having a BBQ dinner!

There’s an exciting day planned as we head right to the Northern Tip of the Peninsula! We’ll take a glass-bottom boat cruise to check out some amazing shipwrecks, disembark to explore Flowerpot Island and then take a jet boat back to the mainland! After lunch we’ll head to the grotto with its turquoise waters, where you can swim an underwater tunnel to the caves (or you can enter via dry land!). We’ll finish the afternoon with a stop at the visitors centre before hiking some of the famous Bruce Trail. Look out for Wildlife! Another group dinner tonight, cooked by your guide!

The last day of our adventure – We’re heading back to Toronto this morning but we’ll make a stop at beautiful Sauble beach on Lake Huron for lunch and some relaxing/swimming. At over 7 miles long Sauble Beach is the second longest freshwater beach in the world! We’ll arrive back in Toronto around 5pm and drop you off at your downtown hostel!
