Choose Between Two Options

  • C$22 for a Bog to Bottle wine tour with wine and cheese for two (a C$45 value)
  • C$29 for a Bog to Bottle wine tour with wine and cheese for two and a GPS-guided treasure hunt (a C$65 value)

The Bog to Bottle tour, kicking off every day at 1 p.m., takes tourists around Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh, after which each pair of visitors enjoys a glass of wine apiece from Muskoka Lakes Winery and splits a plate of locally crafted cheeses on the patio. For extra fun, the GPS-guided treasure hunt sends adventurers out with a borrowed GPS device to find geocaches and pictographs painted by a local artist.

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.
