Haliburton, Ontario (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
Geographically situated centrally between the villages of Haliburton, Ontario, Minden, Ontario and Dorset, Ontario, Oakview Lodge and Marina (http://www.oakviewlodge.com) lies at the heart of Haliburton cottage country, an area famously known for its bright and beautiful autumn leaves. Year after year, tourists flock to witness the splendour of fall colours. Many visitors even plan their vacations around it. Hoping to capitalize on this trend, Oakview Lodge and Marina has recently announced three new getaway packages that cater to the fall colors tourists in the area.
"During the fall season, the whole county is ablaze with color," states Valerie Kulla, owner and innkeeper of Oakview Lodge, a full-service country inn on Little Hawk Lake. "We have been witnessing the fall colours and the influx of tourism to Haliburton that accompanies it. It was the perfect opportunity to develop three new packages - Gourmet Delights Weekend, Ontario Spa Getaway Weekend and Romantic Getaway Weekend - to add even more value to our guest's fall colors vacations."
A busy seasonal tourist industry has grown up in Haliburton Highlands region around the few weeks in autumn when the leaves are at their peak. Haliburton locals refer to the intense two week period as "nature's art gallery" where the forests turn ablaze with a wonderful patchwork quilt of red, orange and yellow. Every year, individuals affectionately known as "leaf peepers" are drawn to the beauty of the fall colours, traveling to view, photograph and paint the spectacle. Wide expanses of forest and distinct seasonal changes make this region the ideal setting for the types of deciduous trees that produce the amazing colourful fall foliage that "leaf peepers" from around the world seek. In Haliburton, fall colors are typically at their peaks in early to mid October. This time period is known to fluctuate and is dependent on the summer's weather conditions.
"This summer's hot temperatures and less than normal rainfall amounts, combined with the temperature swings that we've been experiencing of late, mean that the trees are no doubt stressed into transitioning their leaves faster," Kulla adds. "Thankfully, these kinds of conditions are perfect for a colourful and vibrant fall season for our guests to enjoy. However, in order to view Ontario fall colours at their finest, visitors need to book their Haliburton fall tour getaway earlier this year. Our fall packages are the perfect way to experience the best of fall colors in a luxurious resort setting."
