Gravenhurst is the Gateway to Muskoka and the gateway to your next vacation memories! Located just 90 minutes north of Toronto, this picturesque town offers a wide variety of activities, events, and experiences for everyone!
From a rich history in timber trade and boat building, to today’s diverse offering of events, unique shopping and extensive cultural experiences, Gravenhurst gives people a reason to come back year after year.
Home port to the RMS Segwun, the oldest operating steamship in North America, Muskoka Wharf offers fabulous food, cool boutiques, amazing events, and world renowned cruises!
Not to be outshone, the historic downtown core captures your curiosity with culinary creations, whets your palette with Sawdust City Brewery, and invites you to experience amazing shows and concerts at the Gravenhurst Opera House.
Muskoka has long been loved for its iconic wind swept trees, rugged granite outcroppings, and majestic scenery, but Gravenhurst also holds a special place in hearts as a place where something is always happening.
In addition to the century old Opera House, Muskoka’s oldest entertainment tradition, music on the Barge offers open-air concerts at Gull Lake Rotary Park Sundays in the summer; the Gravenhurst Farmers’ Market showcases the rich selection of arts, crafts and farm fresh items; Cinema Under the Stars welcomes you to bring a lawn chair and enjoy a free family movie outdoors in July and August, and if that wasn’t enough, there are great events every weekend all summer long!
But wait…there’s more! Fall is the perfect time to come and see the leaves turn from earthy green to fiery reds and oranges. Explore the Torrance Barrens Dark Sky reserve, follow old colonization routes or take in a heritage walking tour of the town. Check out great arts and shopping in a relaxed atmosphere and without the pressure to get back to the cottage, hotel, or bed and breakfast.
If winter adventures are more your speed, enjoy one of our many lakes, parks, or trails by snowshoe, cross country ski, snowmobile, or skates.
Whether you are outside or indoors, we have something for everyone to enjoy. Come for a visit, stay for a lifetime. For more visit Gravenhurst.ca or contact the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce at 705-687-4432 for tourism information and advice.
