  • 30,000 island trip

    by renfrew Written Jul 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Best trip, gives u a real idea of the vastness of the country. when u are out on the water it is just so amazing that people live so far from the mainland on what looks like( a lot of the time) very very small islands. The trip is very enjoyable and relaxing, up to a point,! hahahah when the ship has to pass through the narrow passage way with the high rocks under the bridge, which is on native land it just looks like there wont be enough space for the ship, yup it goes slowly, but it gets through, and i specially liked the smiley face (graffitti though it is) on the rock at the entrance, so much so i will probably make a point of doing that again this year.

    Loon Spotting

    Loon on Clear Lake

    The Loon is one of Canada's national symbols. You can find the loon on the back of our one dollar coin, hence it's nickname, the "loonie". Incidentally, our two dollar coin is called the "toonie".

    There are many loons in the Muskoka region and you can spot them cruising the lakes looking for their dinner. They are expert divers and will stay underwater for a long time and then resurface a hundred feet away. They also have a very distinctive call. It is a fun pastime to spot the loons from your dock or boat.

    Get out on the lake

    canoe on Little Whitefish Lake

    There are many small, quiet lakes in the Muskoka Region, perfect for boating, fishing, canoeing or kayaking. Many of the lakes are interconnected so you can paddle from one to the next without portaging.

    There are several outfitters in the area from which you can rent a boat as well as some in Parry Sound.

    chipmunk

    If you are out hiking in the Muskoka region, keep your eyes open for wildlife. We spotted this little chipmunk while hiking down to the base of Rousseau Falls. There are also bear, moose, dear, and beavers in the area.

    Huntsville from Lions Lookout

    Huntsville lies in the heart of the Muskoka Lakes Region and "cottage country" in between Vernon and Fairy Lakes. It is a picturesque town with attractive waterfront cafes and charming shops. Huntsville is also located only 35kms from Algonquin Park.

    I visited the Lion's Lookout for a bird's eye view of this pretty little town.

    Windermere House, Lake Rousseau

    Windermere House, Muskoka

    This beautiful Inn is situated on a hilltop overlooking Lake Rousseau in Muskoka. I didn't spend the night but it was still worth a visit. There is an excellent 18 hole golf course here as well as a restaurant and a pub.

    The rates for a room here range from $170 to $390/night.

    Antiques Shop, Rouseau

    If you are lucky enough to spend time driving through the Muskoka area in Ontario, you should make a stop in Rousseau on Hwy 141. It has charming shops including a very old general store and this antiques shop.

    Dorset Scenic Observation Tower

    by windsorgirl Updated Mar 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    view from the Dorset Fire Tower

    This 100 foot tower affords a wonderful 360 degree view of the surrounding landscape. It was built in 1922 and used as a lookout tower for forest fires until modern technology and the increased population deemed it unnecessary. In 1967, it was opened to the public as the Dorset Scenic Observation Tower. Check out the website for the hours of operation. The cost of admission is $2 per vehicle. It is a great place to view the fall colours.

    Wildflowers


    It must be weird to see all these nature photos under the must see activities. But I think that is the beauty of Parry Sound, not the place itself but the surrounding area. It doesn't matter in what direction you drive, when you take a little sideroad this is what you can see. So stop the car so now and than, and look around you and enjoy!

    Bog

    I allways love to explore the area where I am, and that is what I did this time too. On the next few photos you can see bog areas. Somehow these spots fascinate me... the dead trees, the reflection of them in the dark still water... the flowers and plants that are so much alive and so in contrast with the dead trees.

    Dragonfly


    A dragonfly that was just patient enough to sit here for a few seconds, so I could make a quick photo of it.
