“Muskoka” - “land of the red earth” in the Algonquin language. While pink granite outcroppings and rosy sunsets are year-round features, it is in the fall that Muskoka reaches its real glory. Muskoka blazes scarlet and russet and crimson in Fall! The breathtaking fiery orange and red foliage is mirrored in our gleaming slate grey waters.

This is the time of fall fairs and antique shows that echo a by-gone era; of the renowned Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour; of romantic cruises and idyllic paddles on our beautiful lakes and rivers; of memorable hikes through rustling woods.

Visit the Gravenhurst Wharf to cruise on the historic steamship, Segwun or beautiful Wenonah ll. Or board The Lady Muskoka at Bracebridge.

Climb the fire tower at Dorset and revel at the beauty of the forest in its full Autumn glory.

Admire antiques on display in Bala or sample some of our wonderful winter activities in the Muskoka Lakes region.

Applaud live theatre at The Opera House, the Rene Caisse Theatre and the Algonquin Theatre.

Travel back in time at the Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre, “Grace and Speed,” or at Muskoka Pioneer Village.
