Best Autumn Fall Colours in Ontario

 

Updated: October 18, 2021

 

Best in Canada

If you needed any more reason to choose Muskoka as your leaf peeping destination! Aside from the stunning colours, Muskoka was praised for the fun and exciting ways to experience the fall colours, including boat cruises, helicopter tours, ATV tours, zip line excursions, and kayaking adventures.

 

Fall Colour Update

We are starting to see some small colour changes in leaves.

  • Gravenhurst:80%-90% – orange and yellow – 60% leaf fall.
  • Bracebridge80%-90% – dull reds, orange and yellow-60% leaf fall.
  • Huntsville/Lake of Bays: Peaked -80% leaf fall- Three quarters of trees are bare – remaining colour is very dull.
  • Muskoka Lakes80%-90% – orange and yellow-60% leaf fall.
  • Georgian Bay80%-90% – orange and yellow 40-50% leaf fall, colours fading.

These dates are our best guess for when to see the fall colours this year. Please note, these are just educated guesses based on historical trends. There are many factors that affect when the fall colours will be best for viewing, and these conditions and dates may change slightly from year to year.

  • Early fall colour viewing opportunities: September 24 – September 30
  • Peak maple fall colour viewing opportunities: October 1 – October 12
  • Peak golden encore fall colour viewing opportunities: October 13 – 21
