C$15 for a Geocaching Wine Adventure for Two (C$30 Total Value)

  • GPS experience including rental and tutorial (a $16 value)
  • Guided cranberry-farm tour (a $3 value per person)
  • A tutored wine tasting (a $4 value per person)

Tours begin starting April 5th. Upon arrival at the sprawling farm, pairs get equipped with a GPS system and learn how to use it during a tutorial. During a modern-day treasure hunt, participants set out to explore the farm and, with the help of their GPS, uncover treasures and significant landmarks that pepper the property. Afterward, pairs can soak in more information about the historic farm during a guided tour before ending their visit with a tutored wine tasting.

Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh

Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh was founded in 1952 by Orville Johnston, and is currently helmed by his children. During tours of the farm, patrons traverse a landscape dotted with cranberries and Muskoka Lakes Winery. At the winery, guests sample fruit-based libations during a tutored wine tasting. Wilderness trails cut through the property and are open year-round. During the winter, visitors can hike them wearing cross-country skis, snowshoes, or old-timey tennis racquets on their feet. Youngsters can also enjoy the farm—though the winery is off limits to them—by joining in on scavenger hunts or wielding nets ideal for catching critters when the weather is nice.

Wonderful place, loved the experience. Drove from Brampton to muskoka for the day just for this experience. Met the owners. Lovely hospitable people. We will most certainly be back.
