Elora Gorge Hiking Day Trip
You’re invited to join our scenic day hike at Elora Gorge, a stunning natural attraction in Western Ontario. This hike is set in a very picturesque area, surrounded by rolling hills and Mennonite farmland.
The town of Elora is famous for the spectacular Elora Gorge which seems out of place in the middle of this agricultural area. Formed by glacial meltwater, the 2 km gorge is noted for its 24 m (80 foot) limestone cliffs descending into the Grand and Irvine Rivers. Adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers regularly flock to Elora to enjoy some fun and take in the glorious natural beauty.
Many original stone buildings from the 1800’s still make up the downtown village centre. Over the decades, Elora has maintained its old-world charm and the century-old buildings have been transformed into unique galleries, gift shops, art studios and charming restaurants creating a four-season shopping and dining destination
During our hike, we will make a stop at one of the charming local restaurants for a group lunch (OPTIONAL).
Our CHARTERED BUS will shuttle us from Downtown Toronto (Yonge and Bloor) to the Elora Conservation Area, located about 120 Km from the city. Length: 11 Km
