  • Sled or wagon to take your items to the yurt
  • Washroom and shower facility

Day 1

Stay in a yurt at Bruce Peninsula National Park. A yurt is a tent-like structure on a wooden frame that offers cozy and comfortable shelter during the colder weather. Enjoy stargazing through the skylight dome as you go to sleep. Here, you are surrounded by trees and have access to the best hiking and views.
