“Like for most people and businesses 2020 has been such a challenging year for us. 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.” Mike Stiell, Treetop Trekking Marketing Director.
