Looking for a winter getaway that won’t break the bank?
What if I told you in 35 short minutes you can be transported from bustling downtown Toronto to Muskoka? FlyGTA is making this possible by providing quick flights directly from Billy Bishop to Muskoka Airport. FlyGTA’s weekend flights depart from a private hangar on Toronto Island which means no security lines or passport verification. Just grab a cocktail or coffee in their private lounge and hit the tarmac! Better yet, invite 7 of your closest friends for a girls’ weekend and complete private flight experience.
FlyGTA’s Piper Navajo Chieftain (PA-31) eight-seater planes are surprisingly smooth and give the illusion that you’re flying privately at a fraction of the price. If your budget or vacation time does not allow you to escape to destinations like Tremblant or Whistler this winter, this is the perfect alternative to breathe in the Canadian winter air.
To sweeten the deal even further, FlyGTA has partnered with Muskoka Tourism to offer exciting travel perks and itineraries at a discount bundle rate. These experiences are curated for people who want a weekend escape to Muskoka, without the stress of planning, researching and mustering that Friday Highway 400 traffic. Whether you are looking for a cozy spa getaway or an action-packed weekend of winter sports these experiences can be curated for just about everybody.
There are a number of accommodations depending on budget and preferences. Cedar Grove Lodge would be a great pick for the quintessential Canadian log cabin getaway. Residence Inn by Marriott Hotel Gravenhurst is a great family-friendly option with full kitchens. The JW Marriott, The Rosseau Resort and Spa is the top pick for the ultra-luxe traveller.
There’s no shortage of winter activities in Muskoka. For the active traveller, a visit to Livoutside is a must. This company specializes in year-round adventure experiences. Winter activities such as fat biking, ice climbing, and backcountry skiing are offered to explore their virtually untouched trails. For something unique, dog sledding or snowmobiling adventures are among the popular options. To enjoy some relaxed quality time, a visit to the Muskoka Lakes Cranberry Farm and Winery is the perfect spot to kick back with a glass of wine.
It doesn’t matter how you decide to spend your weekend in Muskoka, so long as you are not spending your commute in gridlock traffic!
