With cozy accommodations, and a multitude of fun and exciting winter activities for every age and skill level, it is easy to see why Muskoka has become a favourite destination for Ontario winter getaways.

If you are seeking a fun winter adventure, Muskoka has exactly what you are looking for! Hit one of our quality groomed trails for snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Hit the slopes with downhill skiing, head to the stables and take a trail or sleigh ride, or head out to the lake for pond hockey at its finest. For those that want to try something truly unique, mush away the afternoon with a dog-sledding excursion, or hit the snowmobile trails, where we are highly regarded as some of the best trail routes in Ontario. Whatever your sense of adventure, you will find the perfect activity to embrace and enjoy winter at your own pace.

 


 

The Most Anticipated Winter Festival of the Season

Fire and Ice Festival | Bracebridge

2016 was the first year for Bracebridge's Fire and Ice Festival, and the inaugural celebration did not dissappoint. The entire downtown turned into a festival atmosphere, with busker entertainment, campfires, yummy goodies, ice skating at the Memorial Park Winter Village, and oh yeah ... they built a tubing hill right down Manitoba Street!

Fire and Ice Festival is the perfect family-friendly festival, and is well worth the trip to this picturesque downtown in the heart of Muskoka. Plan a fun-filled family weekend by booking at a local hotel.
