Treetop Trekking has been named the top outdoor attraction in Ontario by Attractions Ontario, a non-profit trade association in Ontario dedicated to the attractions sector of the tourism industry.
The company operates an adventure park at the Ganaraska Forest near Port Hope, as well as at five other locations in Ontario including Barrie, Brampton, Hamilton, Huntsville, and Stouffville.
Over the past six months, Attractions Ontario held its 5th annual Ontario’s Choice Awards, where the public voted for their favourite tourism attractions in eight categories. Treetop Trekking received the most votes in the Top Outdoor Attraction category.
“Like for most people and businesses, 2020 has been such a challenging year for us,” says Mike Stiell, marketing director for Treetop Trekking. “For most of the spring we didn’t even know if we would be able to open at all.”
“So to go from that to now being awarded Ontario’s Top Outdoor Attraction, we are so honoured and proud. This is a testament to the effort and passion of every single member of our team.”
Treetop Trekking is also one of three finalists for the Attraction of the Year Award, along with Science North and Carrousel of Nations. The winner of that award, which is based on the attraction that received the most votes in all eight categories,will be announced on Wednesday, October 28th at the Ontario Tourism Awards of Excellence.
Offering outdoor activities for a variety of ages and abilities, Treetop Trekking opened its first location in 2006.
