Snowshoe events in the Cape Breton Highlands
Snowshoeing is a very popular winter sport in Nova Scotia this winter along with guided excursions. Hiking Trails tend to look different in the winter with snow…thus the need for guides. Snowshoeing is a great aerobic sport to keep you active during the winter. Don’t forget to use trekking poles.
