Pristine Cottage Country Within Driving Distance of Toronto

Imagine paddling across any one of a thousand serene lakes – just picture the early-morning mist rising from the water to shroud lush trees on the far shore as birds sing the bright chorus of the woods. Each breath of crisp air will tingle your senses. Welcome to the District of Muskoka. This beautiful corner of Ontario has been one of Canada’s most beloved, year-round vacation spots for a hundred years or more. Around here, summers beg visitors to indulge in watersports, hike across the lush countryside or go golfing. Come winter on the other hand, and you’ll want to snuggle up by a warm fire, perhaps after a day of unforgettable cross-country skiing.

The region is peppered with impressive sights, from wonderful heritage museums to art galleries and craft breweries – there’s no shortage of things to do in Muskoka. Don’t miss out on a trip to the charming neighbouring small towns, like Parry Sound. This small, welcoming community is known for lovely seafood bistros, quaint shops and being the birth-place of hockey legend Bobby Orr.

In short: this serene part of Canada is a must-visit for nature lovers of all ages.
