“Whether it’s hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing or even just sunbathing on the lakeside beaches, Muskoka has something for everyone.” says Michelle Kanfer, Marketing Director of CanadaStay. The area is the ideal place to slow things down and get in touch with Ontario’s wilderness, but it also offers art and culture, trails for adventurers and a strong sense of community.
The inaugural ALIVE Outdoor Experience is taking place in beautiful Muskoka. With its unique natural landscape and relaxed atmosphere its the perfect location for summertime adventures.
Located 2 hours north of Toronto, Muskoka is considered to be one of the top Canadian trips by National Geographic. Muskoka is known for its picturesque beauty, being surrounded by 1,600 lakes and for being the Canadian vacation destination for celebrities. Muskoka is often referred to as the “Toronto Hamptons” or the “Malibu of the North”.
Outdoor beauty is the key to Muskoka’s reputation.
Look out for tons of waterfalls; there’s the popular Bala Falls, Stubbs Falls in Huntsville or Wilson’s Falls in Bracebridge. Muskoka also has a rugged forest landscape lush with pine, spruce, birch and poplar, plus regular wildlife sightings – spot a moose, if you’re lucky — making it a perfect place to hike.
Camp ALIVE is a curated campsite on a private lakefront property. Our group will stay in tents and enjoy an authentic Canadian camping experience.
All camping equipment will be provided, you just need to show up with an open mind and your thirst for adventure!
Our days will involve lots of outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and spending time on the lake.

We will take full advantage of the surrounding forest and host our workshops and workouts immersed in the beautiful Canadian outdoors.
