Fall is an idyllic time to take a romantic getaway at the Couples Resort and visit Algonquin Park, Muskoka. Summer has given way to brisk, invigorating autumn air. Fall days remain long, making it comfortable to stay outside for long periods and to enjoy perfect walking and hiking conditions on an endless system of trails.
Nothing says FALL more than fall colors in Algonquin Park, which is known to have some of the most brilliant changes of season throughout Ontario. Considered a Signature Canadian Experience bringing visitors from around the world, who are attracted by the outstanding fall colour viewing opportunities, but there are many other things to see and do.
The Fall Colours alone make a trip to Algonquin - Muskoka worthwhile, especially if you catch the spectacular colours of the Sugar and Red Maples from the 20th of September to Mid-October. Then showcasing the Yellow Aspens, Golden Tamaracks, and Red Oaks which hit their best right after and put on another vivid show before giving way to a more subdued November.
Mid-September to mid-October is the prime time to view the flaming red maple, deep yellow poplar and white-barked birch trees leaves.
They become the backdrop for touring artisan studios, enjoying fall photography workshops and hunting for great antiques.
During this time of year fall studio tours introduce many rural artists and craft experts.
