What you'll do

Winter time is a wonderful season to experience snow shoeing on the trails! We will meet at the main house (straw bale home) where you'll be equipped with your snow shoes, shown how to put them on and get a lesson on walking in them. The terrain here is pretty much flat, therefore great for beginners who want to try it out or are learning to enjoy the sport and nature at the same time. You'll be taken on a guided tour of the property which will include the cedar bush, pasture and possibly the mixed bush forest (time and conditions allowing). There are several very ‘unique’ features on the tour and you will likely see animal tracks, and lots of birds during tour. We will return to the house where you'll be able to enjoy a steaming hot drink and some snacks, on the porch or inside by the fire, to wrap up your experience. FYI .. if you have not snow shoe'd before don't be afraid to give it a try. I have had a double knee replacement and find snow shoeing easier than walking!

Kandi

A life long love affair with nature and the great outdoors brought us to this ‘paradise’ on this wonderful land, where we built a straw bale home over a decade ago. (Checkout our accommodation on Air B & B at Woodlands Retreat Strawbale Cottage!) The desire to live a simpler life, has increased our knowledge about nature, gardening and local wildlife on the property. We are enrolled in the Managed Forest program, which is a 20 year commitment to the stewardship of the land, creating more habitat for wildlife and protected/endangered species. Our snow shoe guided tours have been a favorite amongst visitors for over a decade. ** Subject to weather conditions***

Where you'll be

Once equipped with your gear we'll begin the tour, travel though a gravel pit area, cedar bush, mixed pasture, mixed forrest. We'll be looking for animal tracks, observing unique formations and trees, and listening/looking for various birds and wildlife along the way. It's common to see/hear woodpeckers, cardinals, chick-a-dee's, nuthatches, grossbeaks, junko's, pine siskins and lots more!

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Warm clothes for outdoor experience, hat, mits, good walking boots (preferably waterproof) these will fit in the snow shoe bindings and layered clothing as you will be getting a mild to medium workout. Sunglasses are a good idea too, as is sunscreen.

More tips

Great for any age person who wants to get outside and embrace an easy winter activity. Please note, there is zero tolerance for smoking, anywhere on the property. Also, we will likely be accompanied by Molly-dog the black lab who leads the tour!
