Fun for the whole family this March Break
There is so much fun to be had this March Break around Muskoka! The weather looks like it is going to be perfect for getting outdoors, and there’s still lots of snow on the ground to enjoy the regions winter activities. Keep in mind, some of these activities are weather dependent so check in before heading out to make sure conditions are still good. A reminder that St. Patrick’s Day also falls on Friday, March 17 this year- keep an eye out for the festivities!
Muskoka Maple Trail
The Muskoka Maple Trail is on from March 10 to April 28 and is dedicated to Canada’s most beloved natural product. From sugarbush tours to the quintessential pancake breakfast, maple baked goodies to maple-inspired dining, the Muskoka Maple Trail has it all! Visit your local sugarbush during the harvest season and partake in the annual springtime tradition. Take a guided hike of the sugarbush, meet with the producers and sample their delicious, fresh, 100% pure maple syrup. Taffy on snow is a family favourite, and an experience the kids will always remember.
Horse Drawn Winter Sleigh Rides
Probably one of our most popular family activities is a horse drawn sleigh or wagon ride through the stunning Muskoka forest.
Back of Beyond Equine Centre is a highly memorable family experience. Start with a private tour of their horse farm, stopping to visit and brush their beautiful ponies. Follow the farm tour with a magical sleigh or wagon ride through their private woodland trails, and finish with a campfire, marshmallow roasting and a hot drink after the sleigh ride. This is the perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors as a family this March Break.
Twin Maples Farm also offers wagon rides and carriage rides at their farm throughout the March Break, give them a call to book as they are filling up fast.
