"Faiza & Ifrah's Elora off the beaten path" Elora by Faiza-Ifrah

Elora Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 41 photos

Quaint little town with two great attractions

The quaint little town of Elora is located in the Escarpment Country, 30 minutes northwest of Guelph. Guelph itself is located 90 kms west of Toronto and 60 Kms east of Cambridge.

The country road from Guelph to Elora offers beautiful scenic spots with farms and country houses in picturesque settings.

Elora is a good summer destination for shopping for country goods, for its raceway, for its major attraction of Elora Gorge Conservation Park and for adventuring further out to the historic city of Fergus.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful countryside, shopping, camping, tubing, kyaking and hiking
  • Cons:It is a summer destination, mosquitoes
  • In a nutshell:Make most of Elora by camping in the conservation park

    Like your warning tip. Seems like a catch-22 situation. Carry everything for any eventuality? Looks like a fun place.

    Faiza, Elora is right up my alley. I love the fact that it appears to be unspoiled by man, serene, & inspirational. I can honestly see why you enjoyed your trip there so much.

    Hi Faiza. I enjoyed reading about your trip to Elora. By the way, I'll be in Ontario next month when I have a layover at the Toronto airport on my way home from Tunisia and London.
