So much winter fun, you will want to stay all day … and into the night!
When the snow flies, Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh / Muskoka Lakes Winery turns into Muskoka’s winter playground. This winter, the popular cranberry farm and winery has added a number of fun-filled winter activities to get you out and loving the snow!
The most exciting announcement is the introduction of Light the Night, tiki torch skating that gives a whole new meaning to Friday Night Lights. Every Friday (weather permitting), Johnston’s will be lighting their famous skating trail with 400 tiki torches for a torchlight skate under the stars. There is no doubt this magical wintry setting will become the new Friday night date night in Muskoka.
Skating trails have exploded in popularity, but this is the only one with an on-site winery! Go for a skate on the Cranberry Ice Trail before warming up by the campfire with a mug of delicious hot mulled wine.When you’re packing your skates, throw in a hockey stick and puck as well. New this year, you can actually play pond hockey on a bed of frozen cranberries complete with boards and regulation pond hockey nets. If you have enough friends for a pond hockey game, give Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh a call and reserve one of their rinks.Another new addition to the winter line-up is their tractor sleigh ride. This is a great addition to the Bog to Bottle Discovery Tour (Canadian Signature Experience, Ontario Signature Experience and Muskoka Signature Experience) which runs three times daily, year round.Because no winter adventure is complete without delicious food, Johnston’s has introduced some hearty, comfort eats for guests. After you’ve worked up an appetite with your winter adventure, retire by the campfire with a cup of warm and hearty chili …delicious soup (they love serving up Cranberry Wild Rice Soup from Soup Girl) …or a gourmet grilled cheese – you choose the toppings from their delicious selection of Ontario cheeses.There is so much fun to be had and we haven’t even mentioned their 10km of packed snowshoe trails, the perfect way to explore Muskoka’s winter wonderland.
Skating, snowshoeing, wine tasting, pond hockey, sleigh rides, Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh will have you loving winter and loving the snow!
