The Fire & Ice night at Arrowhead Provincial Park has returned this season and it looks magical!
Arrowhead Provincial Park may be around a 2.5-hour drive from central Toronto but if you can commit some time to going there, there’s a unique experience waiting. Every Saturday, from February 1 to March 1, you can ice-skate through the wooded park on the beautiful ice-skating trail, which is lit with 200 tiki torches to make the experience even more amazing.

When you start to get hungry, there are two bonfires available for you to cook hotdogs and melt marshmallows. You can even buy hot chocolate on-site, to round off your evening of ice-skating. You can rent ice-skates from the park, if you don’t have any you can bring and the whole thing runs from 6-9pm, when the trees look particularly magical in the glow of the tiki torches.
There will be a Fire & Ice skating night running on Valentine’s day and it sounds like such a romantic experience. There are plenty of places around to stay for a weekend if you want to turn your visit into a romantic, Valentine’s weekend getaway. You won’t be stuck for things to do, as the whole area of Muskoka is full of natural beauty.
You don’t need to book online, just turn up at the park. However, by all accounts, it can get a little busy so it might be a good idea to turn up before the trail opens. There are lots of different ways to pay.
Admission on weekends (per car) costs $20. More details on prices are available on the website.
