“Torrance Barrens Conservation Area was designated as the world’s first permanent Dark Sky Reserve. The 4,700-acres of Crown land is bedrock and wetlands, with trees and bushes that are stunted in height. For star-gazers this means a spectacular 360 degree view of the night sky, unhampered by light pollution. The Barren’s also doubles as an exceptional hiking and mountain biking destination, with 3 well marked trails for public use.”

“The Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery is open every day of the year except Christmas and Boxing Day. In the summer, enjoy the trails, watch the cranberries flower. In fall, it's harvest time with those beautiful bouncing berries. And in winter, you can skate the ice trail day and at night lit by 300 tiki torches. Plus, you can't leave without tasting their cranberry wines and spritzers! Their bog to bottle tour is a Canadian signature experience. Fun for the whole family. There is a cost for hiking or snowshoeing their round the bogs trail system and for the Bog to Bottle Tour. The store is always open with everything cranberry. Visit any time of the year. On the weekend after Thanksgiving, Bala (Canada's cranberry capital) puts on a great party to celebrate the Cranberry with its award-winning three-day Bala Cranberry Festival. ”

“A true gem in Muskoka! With multiple loops of varying lengths (3km & 8km), this is a must visit if you enjoy hiking. Trails take you around Hardy Lake & through a hardwood forest with multiple spots to swim from if you're keen. Bring a picnic and enjoy a snack at any of the beautiful lakeside viewpoints. ”
