Explore the Irving Nature Park trails, taking in beautiful ocean views. A stop at the Seal Observation Deck is a must to see if any furry friends are sunning themselves on the rock outcropping below.
Pro Tip - The trails can get icy, winter ice grips for your footwear make for easier trekking.
Rockwood Park offers kilometres of trails, perfect for exploring any time of year. Plan to spend the day skating on Lily Lake, or rent snowshoes, earth cache, geo-cache and more with Inside Out Nature Centre. After your park adventures, warm up with a meal at Lily's Lakeside Casual Dining (take-out available).
Enjoy groomed cross-country skiing trails, snowshoeing under the moon, and ALL things maple syrup with Elmhurst Outdoors. Book your bubble to rent equipment or bring your own. Keep an eye out for their guided nighttime hikes - they sell out fast!
Ice fishing has long been a favourite New Brunswick winter past-time. Try it out without the commitment, with The Shacks. Rent a shack with 4-open fishing holes, rods, bait and enough wood for the wood stove to keep you nice and toasty throughout a 3-hour ice fishing experience.
With the right equipment, you can bike in any season! Be Rad Adventure Company has the equipment and the know-how to take you on a fantastic winter biking adventure.
