What are the best things to do in Muskoka?

A popular escape from the city in the summer for lakeside lounging and water sports, Muskoka is also a wonderful place to hike, bike and watch the trees bloom in the spring or change colour in the fall. In the winter, daytime activities consist of snowshoeing and hiking, followed by cozy evenings in front of the fireplace in picture-perfect Muskoka cabins for rent.

Famed for its natural beauty, Muskoka was a favoured subject in the work of Tom Thompson and the Group of Seven painters - its lakes and forests are the perfect place to enjoy outdoor activities. At the region’s national, provincial, and local parks, visitors can go hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and ATVing in the summer, and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and dog sledding come winter. Muskoka is also home to several award-winning golf courses!

Water sport enthusiasts, from windsurfers to wakeboarders, can spend the dayson the lakes, which are easily accessible from any Muskoka cottage. Fantastic ferry and boat tours through the amazing lakes will make you never want to set foot on land again. And fishermen will be well-served with catches of bass, pike, and trout. Of course, spending a day (or two) sunbathing and relaxing dockside in a famed Muskoka chair is also a must.

With plenty of restaurants, cafés, pubs, and spas in the region, there’s no shortage of places to retire to after a day on the water or trails. The towns of Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, and Huntsville are home to Farmers’ Markets and microbreweries (check out Muskoka Brewery) and are dotted with charming boutiques and art galleries that display and sell local artisans’ work. These lakeside communities also play host to an array of annual events and festivals, including the annual Muskoka Lakes Music Festival.

This region has been named a top destination by many publications around the world and for great reason - the beautiful lakes, amazing Muskoka cottages for rent and tourist stops. When travelling to Canada, you’d be remiss not to consider Muskoka!
