Now that snow has arrived in Toronto, it got us thinking about all the cool things we can during the winter.

And while the city itself offers an incredible amount of entertainment – both outdoor and indoor – this 1.3 km skating trail in Muskoka is simply a must-visit. If you live in Toronto, this weekend escape is definitely winter 2017 bucket-list worthy.

The Arrowhead Ice Skating Trail has become a well known retreat for many Ontarians seeking some solace while skating amongst the trees. No wonder, as the natural environment is one that’s well worth the 2.5 hour drive from Toronto.

What’s more, weather permitting, the trail lights up hundreds of tiki torches on Saturday nights throughout the winter so you can enjoy a nighttime skating session, too.

Please note:Β The trail isΒ not yet open for the 2016/2017 season. The park is closed until December 9th, and the ice skating trail may not open until the first week of January 2017.

Of course, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t already be firmly pinned to the top of your winter 2017 bucket list!

See you in the trees.
