Fall Driving Tours

Huffington Post named Muskoka as the best place in Canada to view the fall colours. And, from the dazzling displays of red and gold that paint the treelines, it’s easy to see that this is a well-deserved nomination.

A terrific way to see the fall foliage is by taking a driving tour through Muskoka. Head out onto the open roads and admire the fiery colours, rugged shorelines, and rolling hills. Buckle up, grab a hot drink from one of the many local businesses to sip as you drive, and see why Muskoka is truly a driver’s paradise.
