Activities for Retirees

It’s time to feel like a kid again, and here at Duck Bay Lodge, on picture-perfect Hay Island, is the place to do it. Nestled on the shores of Lake of the Woods and steps from some of Ontario’s most stunning wilderness, Duck Bay Lodge will transport you to a simpler time.

Whether you’re interested in some of Canada’s best fishing, wading in the refreshing lake water, or snapping photos of the beauty surrounding you, Duck Bay Lodge is guaranteed to be the setting of the unforgettable getaway you’ve been craving. The following activities prove that seniors and retirees can have as much fun (if not more) than the young bucks who visit Hay Island in search of the same beauty and adventure.

For The Young At Heart

Duck Bay Lodge and the postcard-worthy Lake of the Woods are loaded with activities for travelers of all ages — including retirees and senior citizens. The area is known for offering some of the best fishing in Canada, and it’s a great place to bring your grandchildren to build those memories that last forever. But you don’t have to be interested in angling to enjoy the getaway of a lifetime.

While some members of your group are fishing, others can be birdwatching, photographing their surroundings, or venturing to the ancient rock paintings on nearby islands. The senior activities you enjoy at Duck Bay Lodge may feel like leisure, but they’ll keep you active — benefiting your health and wellness, too.


Duck Bay Lodge offers an abundance of outdoor senior activities for those who like to keep moving. In addition to the world-renowned fishing for lake trout, crappie, smallmouth bass, muskie, walleye and northern pike, visitors can go canoeing, play lawn games, swim or even play foosball in the on-site recreation center.


We understand that not all travelers want to spend their entire vacation adventuring. That’s why Duck Bay offers a variety of retiree activities that are less strenuous — such as venturing to the nearby rock paintings, photography and spotting rare birds in the wilderness surrounding the resort.

Also, Plenty Of Relaxation

Duck Bay Lodge can be as exciting or relaxing as you’d like. Those seeking lower-key indoor senior activities will enjoy visiting the fully stocked library, unwinding in the spacious 12-person sauna, or watching their favorite programs on the satellite TV. Fishing is another excellent way to spend time on a boat in the wild without feeling overexerted at the end of the day..
