We are Southern Ontario’s Outdoor Adventure Company, offering cycling, paddling & hiking adventures across South Central Ontario since 1997. After successful years as a paddle tour operation, Grand Experiences expanded in 2002 as we began bike rentals, by 2005 guided cycling experiences were offered by trained facilitators. Since then our cycling tours have taken off! We offer cycling adventures in unique areas: The Heart of Ontario, Mennonite Country, The Green Belt, and Ontario’s South Coast. Our tours include riding on the major TransCanada Trail, but our knowledge and experience allows our facilitators to take you down unique local trails & backroads to/from St. Jacobs, Cambridge, Hamilton, Brantford, Paris, and Port Dover! Looking for more? We also offer “Pedal/Paddle Trips” with 1/2 day canoe/kayak & 1/2 day cycling! These have always been popular as they are a great way to experience a new area, or reconnect with a familiar spot. From Self-guided rentals to 2 day all-inclusive packages – we offer it all! Be sure to check out our “Path Less Travelled” which is an Ontario Signature Experience – a title held for Ontario’s top tourism experiences! As many of us have discovered, great adventures are greatly influenced by experiences. Our experienced interpretative cycling guides will lead you to amazing grand experiences. Our tours run from the Niagara Escarpment, the Grand River & its tributaries, & the trails of St. Jacobs Country to Long Point on Lake Erie. 2 world Biospheres, and a Canadian Heritage River!

Charlton Lake Camp is a housekeeping cottage resort set among the towering pines in Northern Ontario’s Rainbow Country just 2km off of HWY 6 between Espanola and Little Current. The cottages are modern one, two and three bedrooms, with large, well-equipped kitchens, modern bathrooms and comfortable living areas. Each cottage has a fully screened porch, propane barbecue and docking right in front. All face the waters of Charlton Lake and are steps from the beautiful sandy beach. The camp offers boat, canoe and kayak rentals, as well as a launch ramp and docking for guests who bring their own boat. The camp offers fishing (bass, walleye, pike and pan fish), swimming, boating and hiking. Eco-tourists will love the easy access to Killarney Provincial Park for canoeing, kayaking and hiking. Nestled in the magnificent La Cloche Mountain range, with the multicolored quartzite rock of the Canadian Shield, Charlton Lake Camp provides a haven for guests looking for peace and quiet. The spectacular scenery, whether from the seat of a canoe or atop one of the mountain peaks, is quite simply – breathtaking. A perfect location for artists and photographers, it is immediately obvious why the Group of Seven called this home.
