Snowshoe/Skiing on Cape Breton

A snow getaway in winter - it's good for your health

More and more scientific studies are reporting benefits to mood, health, ability to sleep and mental stress from going for a walk in a natural setting. Enjoying the winter sun, fresh air, brilliant snow scapes and peace of the mountain forest is a dose of medicine for the body, mind and soul. Snowshoeing through the forest is one of our favourite ways to spend time outdoors in the winter months.
