You can skate through a torchlit forest north of Toronto
Thanks to the frigid weather that's descended on Southern Ontario, one of the most popular winter attractions north of Toronto is now open for the season. As of December 31, the Arrowhead Park skating trail is up and running.
These are pretty much exactly what they sound like. The picturesque trail through the woods is lit up with a series of torches, and skaters can dart through the forest lit by firelight for a thrilling and romantic experience.
The first Fire and Ice night took place on New Year's day, but there's a robust schedule in store for the remainder of winter. The torches are lit for 6 p.m. and skaters can circle the trail in until 9 p.m.
Here's the rest of this year's schedule:
One thing to note if you're planning a trip to the park for Fire and Ice, you'll want to get there early, as it often takes some time to pay your park fee and find a parking spot. Vehicle permit fees cost $17 on weekdays and $20 on weekends.
