Nordic Skiing + Snowshoeing

GET RECONNECTED WITH MOTHER NATURE

If your idea of a winter’s day well spent is a day of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, then head for Northeastern Ontario where the landscape offers a truly magical experience. When the land is covered with snow, there are hundreds of kilometres of groomed trails for those who treasure their time spent in the outdoors. It’s a great way to get your physical activity and to see Mother Nature at her finest!

Love winter? Love dogs? Then you are going to love dog sledding. Try the quintessential Canadian “mushing” experience in Northeastern Ontario during those dog days of winter. You’re going to have a howling good time!

Here are some fantastic nordic skiing and snowshoeing areas to consider. (Be sure to call ahead or check each venue’s social media or website for up-to-the-minute information on opening dates and snow conditions, as well as COVID-19 safety requirements.)
