About the area
Muskoka, Canada is situated at the southern tip of the Canadian Shield. Located 1.5 hours north of Toronto, Muskoka is a vast district of 1,600 shimmering lakes, thundering waterfalls, sheer granite cliffs, and aromatic pine forests.
Recently named “The Malibu of the North” by the New York Times, Muskoka’s natural and cultural similarities to Malibu draw visitors from all over the world. Embedded in the southern tip of the Canadian Shield, Muskoka’s landscape is known for its rugged rock formations; its lakes and rivers having been carved into the Shield in prehistoric times by retreating glaciers.
