Muskoka is undeniably a verdant cottage paradise – one that is just far enough from Toronto to make driving there somewhat onerous. The 400 northbound highway that delivers countless vacationers to the Muskoka area each season is often congested; the scenery along the route is certainly not impressive enough for a slow trek by car. Conversely, a private charter flight to the area avoids the aggravation of jockeying for position with thousands of other motorists; provides comfort from humidity and hot summer weather; and delivers a breathtaking view from the sky that reveals the many wonders of Ontario’s foremost cottage destination.


The travel time that can be saved by scheduling Toronto charter flights between Muskoka and the big city paired with relief from the aggravation of increasing congestion on the main route into the area, has become a compelling reason for cottage owners and vacation seekers to consider flying over driving. In addition to saving time, flying in to cottage country provides a birds-eye view of the region’s beautiful topography. Lakes, forests, the Canadian Shield and sprawling golf courses as far as the eye can see – provided that the eye in question is looking out of an airplane window, far away from the motorists trapped on the highway below.
