Wonders of the Universe

Let the heavenly bodies that fill the night sky mesmerize, guide and inspire as our expert Resident Naturalist, Robin Tapley, shares his in-depth knowledge of astronony with you.  Learn how to spot the famous constellations. His top-of-the-line field telescope reveals objects 10,000 time fainter than what is visible to the naked eye.

A trek for every interest & schedule

Explore Taboo's over 8 km of nature trails with an expert guide.  From a refreshing 30 min. Morning Trail Walk to a Landscape & Nature Photography session on foot, or our famous Night Walk & Owl Prowl, choose the adventure that moves you.  They are all a great chance to learn about trees, wildlife, eco-systems and even foraging.

Many hikes are included with your stay


Out on the water, classic Canada style

Paddle your way along the shoreline of Lake Muskoka or the nearby Hoc Roc River while your guide shares Muskoka nature, history and culture with you, including unique attractions like the Eleanor Island bird sanctuary.  Introductory canoe/ kayak sessions are offered before our guided outings.

Taboo guests can also borrow canoes & kayaks at our docks
