Elora Photo Gallery

In February 2024, we visited Elora, Ontario to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed at the luxurious Elora Mill.

Elora has a history dating back to the 1600s when missionaries arrived to Christianize the indigenous people. In 1832, land was purchased with the intent of building the town of Elora. A grist mill was built on the west side of the river as a foundation for the local economy. Over the years, this site housed a sawmill, distillery and flower mill.

This site was redeveloped and in July 2018, the current Elora Mill and restaurant opened. We can't say enough good things about the resort. The room, meals and service were outstanding.

Apart from the resort, the town is considered to be one of the prettiest in Ontario. The centrepiece of the location is the impressive Elora Gorge.

Many tourists visit Elora on day trips, attracted by the historic nature of the town or the Grand River Raceway with horse racing and slot machines. It has many small shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants and art galleries. These are often in buildings built during the mid 19th century.

Most day trippers are attracted by the Elora Gorge and its Conservation Area at the edge of town. The park offers canoeing, paddleboat rentals, hiking, camp-grounds, fishing and picnicking. Some of the limestone cliffs are 12 metres (40 feet) high.
