We really dig living in Muskoka. The area is home to many beautiful iconic features and creatures that have come to help symbolize Ontario and Canada as we know it. But one of features that we like the most is how inspiring it is to live amongst the many artisans and crafters - that have made this land of rock and water their home - as well the smaller businesses that have come to be part of the personality and character of the Muskoka we have come to know and love. Thus Twelve Days of Muskoka, inspired by Suburban Tourist's Twelve Days of Holiday Gift Giving, is meant to celebrate these people and their businesses as well as introduce you to some new gift giving ideas and remind you of some old favourites.

Day 5 we mentioned Algonquin. And what goes paw in paw with Algonquin Park? Answer: The Wolf Den. If you make a gift out of a trip to Algonquin Park, the Wolf Den is one of the places we would recommend you stay. Built on the spirit of community and the love of nature, The Wolf Den is one of the most friendly of places you will come to know. Known as Muskoka's hostel, the property also has private cabins available too. They also have an Education Centre that offers half-day workshops and guided hikes on topics such as plants, survival skills, wildlife tracking and connecting with nature. Just situated outside of the park's West Gate, The Wolf Den is also the perfect spot to stop for a night before and/after a canoe trip into the park's interior.

and physical obstacles Sean faced,
this inspirational story is a great gift for
paddlers and non-paddlers alike!

Because you can't wrap up life experience in a box and put a bow on it, we would definitely put the gift of a stay at the Wolf Den under the heading of non-traditional gifts - with a tag marking it as "priceless".
