Muskoka Must Do: Eclipse Walk With Light in Huntsville

Eclipse “Walk With Light” is one of Muskoka’s most unique winter attractions…and is back for its second season! This experience lets you walk through the glowing forest with more than 20,000 lights. Take in the eye-catching features of illuminated and interactive soundscapes that celebrate the cycles of our seasons with music and spoken word. It gets even better with weekly special events including goat walks, beer tastings and food offerings. This spectacular provides the perfect backdrop for date nights or to create family fun core memories and the best part, kids are free!

Follow a circular path through the forest at Muskoka Heritage Place and delight in the six artistic installations using sound and light: be in the present moment of time at Crystalline, ring the flowers to life at Awaken, listen carefully to the sounds around you at Sundial, try different sounds to move with the light at Twilight, make shadows against the moon at Moonrise, and travel through time at the new Portal.

Every night find popcorn and hot chocolate for purchase and snack away as you make your journey through the lively forest. There are special events weekly to enhance your experience of this luminous attraction and make it even more special.
