You can skate through a torchlit forest north of Toronto
Thanks to the frigid weather that always descends on Southern Ontario, one of the most popular winter attractions north of Toronto opens for the season as soon as it gets cold. It will open in late December or January.
It's called the Arrowhead Skating Trail, and it's incredible.
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 Fire and Ice Night takes place on a set schedule. The torches are lit for 6 p.m. and skaters can circle the trail until 9 p.m.
Here's the 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.
