Winter Activities

Winter is here! Waiting for the water to freeze!

Take advantage of the wintery views of Georgian Bay from your cottage rental. Watch the snowflakes dance by as you look over the frozen lake. If you're not up for enduring the cold weather of Muskoka, relax by the wood stove with a good book, a hot cup of cocoa, and a warm pair of slippers.

If you enjoy the winter activities that Muskoka has to offer, Delawana Resort is situated on a popular snowmobile trail with lake and trail access. Also, we are only a short distance to ski hills, cross country trails, dogsledding, snowshoeing, skating, and other fun winter sports. Or keep it simple and build a snowman with the family, make snow angels, or have a good 'ol fashioned snowball fight.

Winter doesn't have to be a season of staying indoors.
