With guides providing interesting and historic facts this tour is bound to please both young and old. Homeowners in Collingwood love this adventure for themselves and for baby boomers in Collingwood it’s a great outing when the grand-kids come to visit. In fact, adventures like this are one of the main reasons baby boomers are looking at houses for sale in Collingwood and the surrounding area.
The adventure totals three hours of fun and enjoyment, and with gear being provided along with knowledgeable guides to help you, you’ll have the experience of a lifetime. You’ll get to walk on the 420 foot high suspension bridge that overlooks 10K square kilometers of Collingwood and Georgian Bay. With hundreds of homes currently for sale in Collingwood you start to realize how much the area has expanded in recent years.
Next up is a fabulous tractor ride through a forest that offers a unique ecology found in the Niagara Escarpment region.

Here you’ll be as close to the treetops as anyone can get and it’s an experience that’s one of the most liked by all visitors.

Then it’s on to one of the most enjoyed things offered; the zip line. This is especially popular with the many seniors who have recently bought homes in the Collingwood. Although some go on the ECO tour alone, many anxiously await the arrival of grand children as an excuse to be a kid once again and soar along a 330 foot zip line toward the ground. Ladders are also available for those not that adventurous.
Back at ground level you go to Lookout Point, where you’ll see some of the best views in all of Ontario. The blue water of Georgian Bay never gets old and it’s a popular spot for those who love photography. After a short rest period, you’re then taken to the enormous caves the area is famous for.

Fantastic views make this “the best” zip line adventures in Ontario.
Baby boomers retiring to Collingwood and Blue Mountain are some of the most adventurous people in the area. You’ll often find them exploring the outdoors, and it’s one of the main reasons new developments are being built and sold in Collingwood, as they look for retirement areas outside of the city.
