Visitors have the opportunity to indulge in a variety of winter activities like fat biking, skin skiing, snowmobiling, ice-fishing and dog sledding. The Cranberry Ice Trail is a popular spot to enjoy skating in all its glory. And of course, we all love to soak in the sunshine during those warm, summer days. There is definitely something for everyone, starting from fishing and golfing to trekking and hiking. Kayaking on the Muskoka River and walking along the Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail make for some stunning views.

When it comes to accommodation, the options are endless. Be it for a day trip or overnight stay, the town has a lot to offer. While Airbnb’s are always on the table, guests can also go for the family-run cottage experience. Resorts and inns by the lakes and historic B&B’s are available as well.
