In northern Ontario, there's an beautiful cranberry marsh that freezes into an awesome ice skating trail in the winter.
Johnston's Cranberry Marsh in Bala, Ontario is usually open to visitors in the warmer seasons for group and private tours. But in the winter, it freezes into a glorious 1.2-km ice skating trail that meanders through 12 acres of cranberry fields and the thick of the Muskokan boreal forest.
Along the trail, you'll encounter great views of the surrounding landscape, including a couple of glorious frozen waterfalls. There are fire pits at various points on the trail as well, and hot mulled cider or wine is available at the winery for you to take along with you as you skate!
According to their website, the Cranberry Ice Trail opens again this month, December 2016. The trail will be open from 11 am to 4:30 pm, 7 days a week (but it will also be dependent on the weather conditions). The cost is only $5 per person and skates should be brought along as there are no rental or skate sharpening services at the winery.
