Snowshoe & High Tea

“What is the point of snowshoeing”? A friend once asked…instead of selling her on my convictions and excitement, instead, I took her “hiking in winter”. We dressed for the weather, packed a hot tea and lunch, animal tracking guide just for fun. After we strapped a pair of snowshoes on our winter boots, lost track of time for a few hours and had a great time exploring areas where she could not go otherwise, she wondered no longer.

Snowshoeing is a great way to get around in winter. Just like in summer time, there are snowshoe trails to explore wonderful vistas. As we stay on trails, there are plenty of opportunities to try and walk next to a trail, and appreciate wearing snowshoes even more. Find out what it’s like to sink up to your waist sometimes and how we can be grateful to our First Nations to invent this amazing tool to keep us afloat!

As we snowshoe, we also find space to reflect, share, let go, perhaps gain a new perspective. We believe that so much self-growth and discovery happens outside, in the wilderness – snowshoeing allows us to hike in winter, sit by the frozen lakes, breathe fresh air.

We are happy to adventure with you no matter your level of experience. Take your first steps with us, and take your pick – whether it’s exploring for a full or half day, in pure wilderness with a Canadiana maple taffy treat or a High Tea experience at Engadine Lodge.
