Pumpkin patches are nice, but have you ever been to a cranberry marsh? This fall, try something new and head over to Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh for a truly unique adventure.
Located in Bala of the Muskoka Lakes, the family-run facility offers two incredible fall experiences that are all quintessentially Canadian: The Bog-to-Bottle Tour and The Cranberry Plunge.
The Bog-to-Bottle Tour is a year-round attraction that showcases the art of making award-winning wines, starting from the harvest at the cranberry bog to the fermentation process. The tour is offered daily at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm and only costs $15 per person (plus tax).
The Cranberry Plunge is a fall attraction that gives participants a true cranberry marsh experience. Dressed in smocks, they will have the chance to plunge into the marsh and wade in a sea of cranberries. This activity is available by reservation only on weekdays at 12 pm and 2 pm (Oct 2-6 and Oct 10-12); however, drop-ins are available during the weekends from 10 am to 4 pm (Sept 30-Oct 1, Oct 7-Oct 9 and Oct 13-15). The best part? It only costs $10 per person (plus tax)!
Aside from the bog, there are other points of interest worth checking out in the area, including the outdoor food tent called the “Cranberry Café (open the weekend before Thanksgiving), a year-round patio, trails for hiking, ice-skating and snowshoeing and much more.
