Eco tourism zipping through Long Point
Ontario’s hottest new eco adventure is now sending thrill-seekers zipping through the Carolinian forests of Norfolk County.
Long Point Zip Line Canopy Tour, Observatory & Eco Adventures launched this past spring and has quickly become a major eco attraction in a region that boasts the largest remaining forest cover in Southern Ontario. In fact, Norfolk County is known as Canada’s Forest Capital, a small rural county only 90 minutes south of Toronto, that is gaining a reputation as an eco gem.
While visiting the site, you’ll also learn about native plant, animal and bird life in this ecological paradise overlooking the marshes and bays of Long Point. The Point is one of the world’s longest sandspits, jutting more than 30 km into Lake Erie.
In addition to zip lining and suspension bridges, there are kayaking tours, star-gazing observation tower, and mountain biking trails.
This is the only spot on the north shore of Lake Erie where you can thrill at the expanse of 15,000 acres of protected forests and marshes. The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve is dedicated to conserving biodiversity, promoting sustainable communities, and partnering in research, monitoring, outreach and education.
