Gone Fishin’

Walleye or pickerel fishing is serious business on the Bay of Quinte. This area is known as the walleye capital of the world, meaning this is the spot for some amazing trophy fishing. Professional guides know where the fish are biting and can teach you the basics, while boat charters offer group excursions to favourite spots. Be sure to visit one of the local bait and tackle shops to get fully kitted out with a reel, live bait and maybe even a few helpful hints for your pickerel fishing tour. This is also cottage country and rentals can be found throughout the area’s bays and rivers. Imagine waking up to an early morning of walleye fishing followed by a lazy afternoon nap in a hammock by the water.

Discover Beautiful Things  

If you don’t feel relaxed from your frosty beer and round of golf, take a gander through the Quinte Botanical Gardens to find your inner zen. With roughly six acres of garden displays, including romantic rose and bird and butterfly gardens, and the largest colour wheel garden in the world, you can become one with nature and learn about the beauty of horticulture.

Be enchanted by the stunningly beautiful flowers at Dahlia May Flower Farm in the rolling Murray Hills. This small, family operation cultivates romantic, fragrant flower of all varieties to offer at their farm stand, as well as at specialty shops and farmers’ markets in the Quinte area. Dahlia May is known for its rustic and elegant design. See for yourself – these blooms are captivating!


 

A Different Perspective At Sager Conservation Area

Pack your good camera, binoculars, and get ready to stair climb – you’ll be rewarded, we promise! If you’re looking for a perfect fall colour panorama, make a point of visiting Sager Conservation Area this season. Located near Quinte West, a short, steep hike brings visitors to a lookout tower and reveals amazing aerial views of the changing treetops and countryside stretching into the Trent Valley.

The 0.5 km hike to the tower takes about 15 minutes, and using a well-crafted staircase allows visitors to reach the top of the lookout. Be sure to read on-site information to give some context into the conservation area and what you’re looking at.

Craft A Delicious One

The Bay of Quinte region is a haven for craft brewing. Witness the passion that goes into brewing and meet the makers before finding your favourite flavour at places like Signal Brewery or Wildcard Brewing.
