One of our favourite spots to explore in Ontario is Georgian Bay and the Muskoka region. This area is the heart of Ontario’s cottage country. The windswept pines, majestic towering cliffs of the Canadian shield, beaches and clear blue water creates a one of a kind destination. Georgian Bay is part of the UNESCO biosphere reserve and is a summer fresh water playground for boaters, anglers, kayakers and so many more. It also turns into a winter destination for snowshoers, snowmobilers, ice fishers and many more. Georgian Bay is truly a year round place to explore and discover. It is also home to two of Canada’s National Parks – Georgian Bay Islands National Park and Bruce Peninsula National Park.
The Muskoka region shares hundreds of kilometers of the Georgian Bay coastline and is home to an additional 1,600 bodies of water throughout the area. The region has been deemed one of the top 20 Best of the World Must-See destinations and the #1 pick for the Ten Best Trips of Summer by National Geographic Traveler Magazine. This 2,500 square-mile area is home to 17 unique historic towns and villages, 8,699 miles of beautiful shoreline and countless waterfalls.
Being far enough from the city (2 hours North of Toronto), you feel transformed into a tranquil surrounding with beauty at every wind in the road. Be it Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, there is no question that the Muskoka region has something for everyone of all ages and is one of Ontario’s most popular all-season playgrounds.
