This popular skating rink in Ontario is back and you’ll glide through a torchlit forest

Fan favorite Fire and Ice Nights is back at Arrowhead Provincial Park and that means you can skate through a magically lit forest at night.

Glide along the 1.3 kilometer ice trail lined with glowing torches on Friday and Saturday nights, starting in late January.

The exact opening date for the nighttime event has yet to be announced, but the ice rink is now open for daytime skating.

The park is a popular winter destination, offering hiking, skiing, snowshoeing and skating trails, as well as winter camping. New this year, day permits are available in advance by booking online or by phone. You can select the ‘Fire and Ice Evening Skate’ option when booking.

It is recommended that you purchase an entry permit in advance to ensure you can enter the park and enjoy your planned activities. The cost is $21 per vehicle.

They’re not selling food this year, so it’s a good idea to bring your own.
