You Can Go Glow-In-The-Dark Kayaking On Lake Ontario & It's Worth A Trip Across The Border

Most of us have tried glow-in-the-dark mini-putt and glow-in-the-dark bowling, but how about glow-in-the-dark kayaking?

A new kayak company lets you rent transparent, LED-light, Bluetooth-equipped hybrid kayak-canoes, which you can use to paddle across Lake Ontario

This activity — dare we say it — actually makes us want to road trip to Toronto for a long weekend.

The beauty of glow-in-the-dark kayaks is that they make it easier to kayak at night. This can either be super tranquil or a full-on party — thanks to the neon lights and Bluetooth speakers — depending on your mood.

Imagine sitting in a boat on the lake as you watch the sunset from your kayak-canoe. Then, you start paddling around, your boat illuminating your path, as the city skyline lights up before your eyes. Play some music on the Bluetooth speakers and—pure magic. 

The Quebec-Ontario border is open and it's really only a five-and-a-half-hour drive, so it could be well worth it to hop on the 401 and give your summer a glow up.
