Stargaze in Luxury Fall asleep under the stars at Glen Oro Farm's Eco-Retreat in Oro-Medonte (above). Nestled between towering maples and pines, stargaze from your king-size bed in your loft-style dome with a skylight for unobstructed views of the night sky. Each dome also has a wood-burning stove, an ensuite bathroom and a kitchenette. If you don't feel like cooking, enlist the services of chef Paul, who can prepare your meal over an open fire. Go Off the Beaten Path Curious about winter camping but have no gear and no experience? Then Voyageur Quest's three-day Algonquin Park expedition is for you. Led by seasoned guides, you'll learn backcountry travel skills—like how to properly haul a toboggan— snowshoe through fresh powder and ski over frozen lakes. The first night's respite is in a log cabin, followed by a night in a heated tent—which you'll set up yourself. Cozy Up in a Yurt Six provincial parks across Ontario offer furnished, winterized yurts—a cross between a tent and a cabin— including Killarney Provincial Park. Upon arrival, you'll be given a toboggan to carry your gear the 500 metres from the front gate to your site. Each of the six available yurts is outfitted with electrical heat, lighting, a barbecue and a covered outdoor dining area. Make sure to bring your own bedding and cookware. park/killarney OUTDOORS WINTER CAMPING can be intimidating for even the most seasoned summer camper, but with the proper gear, a toasty fire and a steaming mug of cocoa, below-freezing temps need not be a deterrent.
