Winter Has Wings

The County of Lennox & Addington is a hotspot for birding enthusiasts in winter, particularly on its islands, such as Amherst Island which harbours owls. Many owl species can be found on the island in winter, even Snowy Owls who can often be seen on fence posts or in trees on the west end of the island – passengers of the ferry have even spotted them sitting on the ice! 

 

Majestic Beauty, Endless Trails

Over 200 kilometres of snowy tundra is waiting for you to explore! The snowmobile trails seem to be everywhere and with all the impressive woods and snow-covered lakes and rivers; one can only imagine the beauty just beyond the highway. These snow adorned trails make for some pretty fantastic sledding. 

Stargazing

In Lennox & Addington, you can escape from the haze of artificial city lights and sleep under a canopy of stars. If you’ve ever wondered what the night sky looked like 100 years ago, spend an evening stargazing at the Lennox-Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area.

Professional astronomers have said that the Dark Sky Viewing Area is in the most southerly point in the province, where you can still get a perfect, unimpeded view of the night sky. Stargazers can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights or the nebulae, that make up just a tiny part of our Milky Way Galaxy. You don’t need to bring any professional equipment to enjoy the celestial sights here, though a decent pair of binoculars or a camera is always recommended. If you want to set up your camera or telescope, the tennis-court-sized concrete viewing area is the perfect spot.
