Escape to Beautiful Muskoka, Ontario
August 30, 2016
Do you feel like getting back to nature and away from all the bustles of life? Muskoka, Ontario is a natural paradise filled with beautiful scenery, fresh air, and plenty of things to do outside. A year-round favourite destination of the people in Ontario- Muskoka holds plenty to do and see.
In the winter snowmobiles, cross-country skiing, and dog-sledding are just some of the activities available. Strap on blades and skate through the forest on the Arrowhead Ice Skating Trail. This frozen trail goes through the thick evergreens, making the place look like something out of a fairy tale. A little hand-holding with your sweetheart in the snowy woods is perfectly acceptable and very romantic. You could also ride in a horse-drawn sleigh or do some snowshoeing.
In the summer, the lakes of Muskoka are ready for fun. Come and try something new and thrilling. Flyboarding is a new craze that has people soaring into the air on a board about the size of a skateboard. Water is forced through a hose and into your boots, lifting you high into the air where you can dip and dive along the water’s surface. Use a helmet camera to capture your adventure for all of your friends to see.
Clear Lake Beach and many others in Muskoka offer sandy beaches, perfect for relaxing and sunning. The lakes also offer places to picnic. There are docks where you can put in your canoe or kayak for a quiet paddle around in the scenic beauty. Some of the lakes have little islands to explore. Pontoon boats can launch and use the lake for a floating day of fun. You can even enjoy a cruise along Millionaire’s Row on one of the many boats that tour the river. Have a nice dinner cruise and watch the sunset with your loved one. The Royal Mail Ship Segwun is history on the water. This floating museum holds up to 99 passengers. Launched in 1887, today this ship is really popular for weddings.
For land-lubbers who visit Muskoka there are 4000 sq km of trails in rugged terrain to follow. These trails are beautiful especially in the fall months. Come and stretch your legs. See moose, bears, otters, and birds in the thick forest of birch, tamarack, spruce, and pine trees. Scenic overlooks are a wonderful way to see gorgeous vistas and get postcard-quality pictures. Algonquin Provincial Park has nine interpretive rails for day hikes. Each trail highlights a different part of the park. The 1.3 km Algonquin Museum Logging Trail is an easy walk.
