Camping accommodation is included in your registration fee, and in 2017 we'll be spending two nights in college dorms in Hamilton and Toronto. You are also welcome to make arrangements to stay in a hotel or B&B for one or all of the nights.
Camping: If you want to make camping more comfortable and convenient check out the Comfy Camper Service. They outfit you with a roomy tent, air mattress, camping chair and clean towel every morning. Their team of locally hired youth set up and take down your tent daily. Every year Comfy Campers makes a contribution to support the Waterfront Regeneration Trust's mission. Check out this video of what the GWTA experience is like.
There are many fine accommodations in our host communities, however, the establishments in this selection are supported by the GWTA, located close to base camp and are cycling friendly. Luggage will be dropped off at the hotel in the evening and picked up in the morning. Where distances or circumstances warrant it, there may be shuttles to the hotel.

A really special and unique accommodation choice; we highly recommend trying glamping at Long Point Eco Adventures. This was a hugely popular choice during the 2013 GWTA and the overnight options have since been expanded to include three different levels of accommodation. From reasonably priced Camping Pods through to the more luxurious Wilderness Pods and the height of luxury in the Wilderness Suites. There is an accommodation choice to suit everyone.
